Of weird instruments and Funky covers

instrument_album

1. Odd-looking instrument W, the name of which, is derived from words that mean “to speak/chatter” in its language.
The word W is also a popular nickname given to a Fighter Jet, since people think the jet looks like the instrument.
W?

2. X is a music album by an American indie-rock Band, which uses a story-based theme and references a popular astronaut Y in two of its songs.

Songs from X use sounds from W ( the instrument, not the fighter jet),
and one of the songs Z is a Folk tune, popular in the Computer/TV/Brick Gaming context.
X, Y, Z?

W, Y, and Z are from the same country. X can be derived by staring at the album cover šŸ™‚

[Note: Reposting this question of mine, from a FB quizzing group]

———————-
Cracked by Nishanth, Vic and Vishal.

Answer:

W ā€“ Balalaika
X ā€“ The Doubble Donkey Disc
Y ā€“ Yuri Gagarin
Z ā€“ Korobeiniki – The Tetris theme

Note: the balaklava is a piece of clothing, a music album, a city etc. But not what I’m looking for.
