Gypsy Punk band, Gogol Bordello
, is set to release their sixth album Pura Vida Conspiracy
on July 23rd. Gogol Bordello is not your everyday band. Rising from the New York underground scene, frontman Eugene Hutz hoped to mix his Gypsy heritage with an energetic punk style. Gogol Bordello has a very wide range, they can bring an electrifying stage presence or turn the volume down a bit and play a sweet acoustic set. Whether you feel like moshing in a giant pit of sweaty bodies or just head bobbing in the back, you’re bound to have a good time. I’ve found that the album work doesn’t always convey the intensity that they can bring to a live concert but the message the band hopes to convey through their work is always refreshing. If you even slightly dig their recently released single “Lost Innocent World” it’s worth the effort to see them live. Their summer tour dates are available through their website
. You can also stream “Lost Innocent World” and “Maladrino” below. Even if you don’t enjoy the music, you have to respect a man with a wonderful mustache.
Talk Music band Listener
is set to release their third LP, Time Is A Machine
on June 18th. Listener
is the work of Dan Smith, Christin Nelson, and Kris Rochelle. I’m really excited for this record; Wooden Heart,
their previous record was just such a unique experience, filled with wonderful words and a instrumentally thin but well done piece. If you’ve never really checked out spoken word, Listener
is a great introduction. They often sit in between a spoken word band with a post hardcore vibe. You can check out an interview with them here. Eyes To The Ground
a track from their new record is currently available for free download through their website
, along with an album presale and tour dates. I think it makes a perfect intro to the band. The guitar just feels so smooth throughout the entirety of the song, and Dan always has something interesting to say. You can also stream the track below.
