Usssy - Po Krugu [Koolarrow Records 044 Promo]

Fresh on the circuit via Koolarrow Records since September 25th, 2k20 is "Po Krugu", the latest sonic outing created by Moscow-based Psychedelic Rock / Noise Rock outfit Usssy. Fusing named styles with influences of (Desert) Blues as well as Black Metal and, most importantly, an ever growing significance of elements taken from Eastern / Middle Eastern music the entirety of nine songs on this roughly 40 minutes spanning album, which is the second after the bands resurgence in 2018, provide a hypnotic, fascinating ride into what might be filed under the flag of Desert Psychedelia of mostly instrumental nature and cater a very down-to-earth Americana-leaning feel with ever spiralling, emotionally touching Eastern influences telling tales of deserts and dust, assassins of yore, sheiks and their harems, projecting a plethora of pictures into one's innermost consciousness, balancing familiarity and unacquaintedness within each single moment of this stirring, intoxicating musical maelstrom. This is a trip - at least up to halfway down Track 4 for us as the CDr promo copy we've received turned out to be strangely damaged and unplayable right after this point. Which is a sad thing.
