Je ne sais fucking pas...Saboteur Blues will blow you away



It ain't no secret that here at Wednesdays With Andrew, we love Gogol Bordello. So much so, I have decided to break the Wednesday Is the Only Day of The Week rule, and cobble together this quick write up in honor of their newest release.

Earlier this month the 9-piece transcontinental band of gypsies put out a single, Saboteur Blues, as part of a broader campaign to get people psyched (with the aid of psychedelics, if need be) for their upcoming full-length Seekers and Finders. 

You can listen to the sonic decadence that is Saboteur Blues here. True to their form, Gogol Bordello blends traditionally non-rock instrumentation with their fleshed-out rhythm section, infusing a sense of wonder and wander into this indefatigable and unrelenting rock anthem.  Thematically speaking, Saboteur Blues also acts as a nice little 'fuck you' to renowned French philosopher Descartes. Band leader Eugene Hütz eschews the universally accepted axiom "I think therefore I am," offering instead this motto: "I feel, perceive and experience, therefore I motherfucking rock.”

The long-awaited Seekers and Finders, which marks the 7th album in Gogol's storied career, will drop August 25. Slowly curated over the past year, across 3 continents, Seekers and Finders is a collection of eclectic and thought-provoking compositions. Not in the business of keeping music stale, rest assured that Gogol Bordello incorporates plenty of spice into their brand of wreck n' roll...not least of which will come in the form of an earth-shattering duet featuring Regina Spektor. What's doubly exciting about this particular record is that it marks the first time that Eugene is in the producer chair, giving him a terrifying (-ly aweosme) amount of control over a collection of songs that amounts to one helluva crazy ride.

Unsurprisingly, these rockin' nomads refuse to simply release the music and sit back; they will be embarking on an impressive 4-month world tour in support of the album. You can check tour dates and locations here. Words cannot express the grief that hit me when I saw that they decided to pass on DC during the North American leg of their journey. Guess we're gonna have to make a road trip up to Philly!

Alright Wednesday nuts, enjoy the tune. I have listened to Saboteur Blues about 400 fucking times this week, so I'm gonna go sit in a dark silent room for a while. PEACE
