The Zen Hussies
Continental Adapter
self-released

The Zen Hussies make a delightful party racket on this minialbum. Their unholy marriage of styles might remind you of Gogol Bordello or Squirrel Nut Zippers.

Opener "Keecker-Rocker" merrily rocks the house as they give in to their jazz influences. The big band vibe really sounds cool here. "The Whiplash Waltz" revs it up and gives us a song that could belong in a Kusturica film, all Eastern European swing and good humor. "My Kinda Lady" unsurprisingly swings a lot and has a suitably droll lyric, well sung by the singer. The Zen Hussies sound like they'd be a dynamite live band, and this collection should make any party swing.
