Kozhung of the Rising Sun

You know that SoundRoots likes us some strange cover songs. Among the strangest have to be Central Asian versions of classic rock songs. I'm not sure if there's a cover-song arms race going on between Tuva and Siberia, but not long after the former's latest salvo (Yat-Kha's Re-Covers), I recently discovered a new entry from the latter from the group Bugotak. Their newest album Coverlar (which means, unsurprisingly, "covers") fires right back with some great throat-singing on well-known rock and pop songs.
