Russkaja Announces New Album, Single, Video, Tour News

Courtesy: Napalm Records

Russkaja is set to release its latest album next month, and in anticipation of its release, debuted the lyric video for the record’s lead single Thursday.

The band is scheduled to release its new album, Turbo Polka Party Feb. 3 through Napalm Records. IN anticipation of its release, the band premiered the lyric video for the album’s lead single, ‘Shapka‘ Thursday. The video features the lyrics over almost cartoon-ish visuals of the band performing its new song while the single plays over the visualization.

The musical arrangement featured in the song mixes some nu-metal leanings with what sounds like some distinct Eastern European musical influence for a sound that is unique in and of itself.

No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme was provided in the press release announcing the debut of the new video. However, information provided about the album’s overall lyrical content hints at the song being a social commentary. That is just this critic’s interpretation.

Turbo Polka Party will release on gatefold LP, CD and digital platforms. The album’s track listing is noted below.

  1. No Borders
  2. Russki Style
  3. Shapka

2015 Saw A Number Of Great Rock Records Released

2015 has been a great year for the rock community. That is because so many standout albums have been released this year. This includes new rock albums both in the underground and the mainstream. There have been so many outstanding rock albums released so far this year that there was just not enough room for all of them on just one list (that is unless one were to make a list of the year’s top 100 new rock albums). Keeping that in mind, it couldn’t have been easy for any critic to develop a year-ender for the year’s best new rock records. It definitely wasn’t easy for this critic. This critic’s list of the year’s best new rock records presents albums from some relatively well-known bands and some that might not be so widely-known. Regardless of how well-known said acts (and albums) are, it can be said that each wholly deserves its spot on this list thanks to musical and lyrical content that is more apt to keep listeners engaged from beginning to end than any other band or album. Enough rambling. Without any further ado here is the list of those bands and their respective albums. This is the Phil’s Picks ‘ 2015 Top 10 New Rock Albums. As with every other list, the main body of the list is made up of the year’s Top 10 Best new records. The bottom five receive honorable mention for a total of fifteen albums.
