PRO PUBLICO BONO: Drop by Drop I Squeeze a Slave of Myself: LP

What starts as dark, galloping punk (i.e. Allvaret or Gorilla Angreb) with female/male vocals sung in their native Polish, unfortunately quickly lost this listener after the first two tracks due to the incessant and unnecessary bleating of a trumpet. Punk means “no rules,” but marrying Gogol Bordello and mariachi accompaniment to your bleak, driving rock just doesn’t work for me. Great, starkly cold packaging with twelve page bilingual lyric zine included. Check it out if you’re feeling adventurous. –Matt Seward (Pasazer, pasazer.pl)
