MUSIC: Golem!

Fresh back from a trip to Germany, I can't think of another band that's a better fit to post than Golem. This extremely interesting band is described as an "Eastern European folk-punk band" and I think that's a pretty good summary. Their new release, called "Fresh Off Boat", was released on August 22nd. Featured guests include Amanda Palmer from The Dresden Dolls and Mike Gordon of Phish. Try on a couple tracks...

::: Golem - Ushti Baba
::: Golem - Warsaw Is Khelm
::: Golem - Bublichki

I mean, whose day isn't better when a klezmer band is involved?
