Gogol Bordello - Trans-Continental Hustle (2010)

Gogol Bordello are a Gypsy Punk band from the Lower East Side of New York City. Much of the band's sound is inspired by Gypsy music. Now Gypsy is a hybrid of Romani music and Punk Rock. Gypsy bands will use drums, tambourines , accordions , fiddles and trumpets in their music. Trans-Continental Hustle was produced by Rick Rubin. This album was inspired by front man Eugene Hutz time in Brazil.

Overall I really enjoyed this album, it has a flair about it that is rather enjoyable. Now part of the lyrics are in Ukrainian and the other in English so you may not understand everything completely. What you have here is a nice punk album with an eastern flair.

Trans-Continental Hustle is one of the best albums of 2010.
