With their sophomore effort UZU, Alaska and Ruby continue their exploration of cultural dualities. While YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN has always provided an outlet for the core duos celebration of their Asian heritage, the inclusion of auxiliary musicians and artists into the fold has reinforced one of the most crucial defining dualities of the group: the merging of diasporic and indigenous perspectives. This meeting of East and West is perhaps most visible in UZUs lead single One. As the first YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN song to extend the songwriting credits beyond the core duo, One incorporates the indigenous upbringings of the extended group by leading off with a traditional Iroquois song. The introductory chant is a social song calling all people together, and is performed by people of the Mohawk tribe. From there, the band kicks into a driving guitar line and a vocal hook as sweet as any J-pop hit. Metal riffing, free-jazz cacophony, and meditative Eastern percussion patterns accentuate the song. In the hands of lesser visionaries, this kind of cross-pollination would sound like a schizophrenic genre mash-up. But YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITANs appropriations never sound forced. Rather, it sounds like a celebration of the cultural collision of Alaska and Rubys upbringing. The hybridization is evident throughout UZU--you can hear it in the operatic piano-and-vocal opener Atalanta segueing into the dynamic prog of Whalesong, the Eastern melodies seamlessly melding into the synth arpeggio and guitar dirge of Windflower, the musical storytelling tradition of Seasickness Pt. 1 juxtaposing with the Heart-like classic rock gallop of Seasickness Pt. 2, and the closing choir passage of Saturns Return descending into Merzbow-esque white noise.
