Newbie actor (Everything Is Illuminated) and manic frontman for NYC's premier Gypsy punk cabaret crew, who take over the Drake Wednesday (February 15).
Dr. Israel - Patterns Of War
"One helluva well-boiled-down crossover of heavy dub, ragga, rock, reggae and other unexpected international elements. A on-repeat-in-the-tour-bus-style album. Along the lines of the Rootsman, whose Arabic dub ecstasy sustained us on the road for years."
Kultur Shock - Horse Thief
"No intro, just full-on, balls-out Balkan metalo-punk instant party. Just add yourself! A solid shot of adrenaline up anyone's ass; an emergency track for DJs who see beyond one style. "
Parliament-Funkadelic - Dr. Funkenstein
"Something from childhood times that snuck its way back into the hit parade, mostly cuz I've been realizing how much influence they had on Gogol's formation. Parliament's music was straight out of space for us back in Ukraine, but it moved everyone's ass with no compromise. "
