Ska, surf rock and punk-lite throw open the Iron Curtain in this collection of Russian bands playing in a Berlin club on an expat alternative tip. Ain't no cosmopolitan beats on this thing; its all weird, awkwardly deep vocals and endearingly clumsy fusions between a traditional Russian aesthetic (chock full of minor key horn oompas and accordions), indeterminate folkiness and swingin' ska. A refreshing take on the mixing of genres that might horrify the urban sophisticate within as your big toe taps in goofy polka time.
