Strange Man, The Rise & Fall Of Flingel Bunt, Anatevka, Wie Ein Blitz, Garsilamas, Das Ergotaxion, The Young Man & The Sea, Zirkus, Sand Barrier, Ukraine, Comin’ Home Baby, 9000 Miles, Beyond The Dune, El Shake

Heck yeah! Here’s the third album from Germany’s Looney Tunes fronted by Sebastian Hartmann. Going back to their first album, they’ve always produced a hard, thick sound with great original riffs and unusual covers like Anatevka from Fiddler On the Roof. I dig the way they experiment with different song structures and moods while keeping the energy of a reverbed surfy sound. Lots of East Euro themes, and then a happy number like Sand Barrier.
