Amoeba Review

07/22/2013

The gypsy punks are at it again. Pura Vida Conspiracy finds the band re-establishing its grandiose world-rock sound with songs about unity and striving for success. “We Rise Again” opens the album as the band’s fight song, as an explosion of voices, languages and instruments from electric guitars to fiddles rage about how the band will rise again “with a fist full of heart and a really cool future.” Flamboyant frontman Eugene Hütz proclaims “I was born with singing heart” over acoustic guitar on “Malandrino” before the band breaks into a scuzzed up Romani jam. Hütz wisely goes for personal over political (or keeps the political statements more open to interpretation) on Pura Vida Conspiracy, lamenting his lost youth on “Lost Innocent World” and frequently referencing his family. It helps give Pura Vida Conspiracy the universal feel Gogol Bordello have always strived for, as sentiments like “I’ve seen the other side of rainbow, and it was black and white” is something anyone can relate to in a broader sense. Though Gogol Bordello have always struggled to translate their dynamite live show onto record, the strength of the songwriting on Pura Vida Conspiracy makes it one of Gogol Bordello’s best albums yet and a welcome return for the gypsy cabaret act. Whether it makes you want to rise up or start a party, Pura Vida Conspiracy is electric.
