A Compendium of Klezmer-Punk Strategies Against Despair

Singer/songwriter/accordionist/novelist Geoff Berner’s music combines klezmer (for the uninitiated, the folk music of Eastern European Jews), punk, political satire and Balkan dance rhythms. He writes sharp, literate songs that can make you want to weep, laugh, grind your teeth, or kick out a window. Often all at the same time.

Would there be a colour attached to each album, this one's would be dark grey with little light grey sprinkles in it. And probably a tiny red one, like the painted Bird on the cover.

"Bad Old Songs", Daniel Kahn & The Painted Bird's new album is a dark and more intimate follow-up to their award-winning "Lost Causes" (2011, Oriente Musik).


Finally in the audiophile Vinyl version:
