I'm listening to Albert Kuvezin's album of covers of western bands like zep, iron butterfly and kraftwerk and it's really fucking good if not a little scary when he goes really deep. anyone know of any more good throat singers?

What do you mean by throat singers? Like I might have throat cancer sing ala Tom Waits? Or like using your throat like a bullfrog?

Excellent. I've only been into it for a while, there's loads of it out there. Yat-kha are good (Albert Khuvezin's band) but you really should be listening to Huun Huur Tu first, those boys are excellent. 60 horses in my herd is one of the most necessary records ever released. Also, check out Sainkho Namchyleck (I'll check the spelling in a bit), she's got something like an 8-octave range. She's one of the most impressive singers from anywhere, she can do things with her voice that'd make Diamanda Galas wince.

It's a vocal technique whereby the overtones are emphasised - which means that you can get two (or more) notes at once. It's actually pretty easy to do, but takes quite a bit of practice to get it sounding good. There are lots of different techniques to produce overtones, I can't remember which one I do best, it might by Khoomei. Google it, it's a wonderful thing. Trust.

Huun-Huur-Tu

they're from Tuva, a foursome of excellent throat singers.
Seen them live, it was great.

I should say that Throat singing isn't exclusive to Tuva, but I don't know a great deal about the other countries that do it, I understand somewhere in Scandinavia does overtone singing as well, but it seems it's very popular in the outreaches of former Soviet block countries

Ghengis Blues is about a blind bluesman, nearly down and out, who heard throat singing on the shortwave he always played around with and he taught himself to make these vocal sounds where you have two or three notes at the same time, and he travels to Tuva (where my idol richard p feynman went) to seek out these throat singers and he enters a contest they hold every year. it is a sad and great movie.

Yeah. Not everyone can do it well, but the simple effects are pretty easy. Try singing a high note and moving your tongue back so it nearly covers your throat, then fiddle about. There're probably some instruction-y things online somewhere, but it's not that difficult to produce with a little practice.

It's the sound between "OOO" and "EEE" that does it.
I have seen Huun-Huur-Tu before, and it was pretty cool.
Paul Metzger has been incorporating elements of this in some recent performances as well, and pulling it off.
