After a decade-plus as bare-knuckle contenders for World's Most Riotous Live Band, Gogol Bordello step up their studio game with producer Rick Rubin, who knows how to give pop shape to reactor-grade energy. Everyone is on point: Accordion and fiddle rock as hard as guitars and drums; rhythms from Brazil (frontman Eugene Hütz's new home) blend with breakneck Eastern European dances and D.C.-style hardcore. Rubin pushes Hütz's poignant broken English up front: "May the sound of our contaminated beat," he sings, "sweep all the Nazi purists off their feet." Word.
