Koonda Holaa, also known as Kamilsky—actually, Czech-born musician Kamil Kruta—has a long and confusing résumé, including stints with the Residents and Pseudo Pseudo, time in Czechoslovakian prison just before the Velvet Revolution, and collaborations with X's Exene Cervenka and others. While this is all very interesting, Koonda Holaa and the Beetchees' most recent album, 2009's 10 Acres of the Finest Sand, speaks for itself. It's the sound of a dark harvest of something mystical from familiar folk tropes, with Kamilsky's deep voice both inviting and terrifying; the record's mix of organic and bizarre instrumentation sounds both pan-global and entirely otherworldly. Kamilsky has been in the States for many years now, but his music has so many widespread roots that it's unlike anything you've ever heard. This guy might be a genius. NED LANNAMANN
