KUSO - Sursu & Tabriz [hpr025]

Happy Puppy is pleased to announce the debut EP from the latest addition to the Puppy label family.

Although the word "Kuso" means internet culture parody in East Asia, these tracks by the enigmatic artist Kuso suggest intent in a more serious musical direction.

This EP is split into 2 distinct parts, the first titled "TABRIZ" which encorporates elements of Japanese-flavoured guitars alongside orchestrations and melodies that resemble the 1970's work of Ennio Morricone.

The second shorter section, "SURSU" is comprised of themes that could easily appear in an action picture from the 70s, although of the slightly more wobbly variety.

The bonus track "Construccion Del Maiz" is an 8-bit outing, very much like the theme from a long-lost video game.

We hope you enjoy this short, but worthwhile listen. Download now!
