Sujud (Sublime Frequencies)

Senyawa Sujud Cover

Avant-garde duo Rully Shabara and Wukir Suryadi work on the fringes of Indonesian folk, deconstructing it and harnessing the energies released to create an intriguing sound that evades classification. Think Javanese grunge, as distorted guitar chords are used to invoke tribal spirits with the striking vocals range from unearthly falsetto to animal-like wheezing to create an altogether unique album. Reviewed in #147.
