TURBO POLKA PARTY
Vinyl LP pressing. High voltage party polka virtuosos Russkaja provide the most danceable heavy album of early 2023 with Turbo Polka Party! Hailing from Austria but wearing their Ukrainian and Russian heritages on their sleeves, Russkaja present their hardest-hitting studio album to date, once again mixing elements of metal, punk, ska and polka to create an addictive mixture you can't help but move to. Although they hail as one of the most entertaining bands in rock, Russkaja have never strayed away from clear political statements. As with past releases, most recently 2019's No One Is Illegal, the band, known for utilizing Russian imagery as a nod to their cultural background, sends a clear sign against war - calling for peace and humanity on Turbo Polka Party. This message is particularly emphasized with new song "No Borders" - reflective of the cries for peace Russkaja stated in the wake of the Ukrainian/Russian tensions that came to a boil during their recent USA tour with Flogging Molly.
