Album Review

It took a couple of years for this album to find a domestic release, but the wait was worth it. German FSK collaborated with American David Lowery (formerly of Camper Van Beethoven, later with Cracker) to produce an album that's about equal parts polka, power-pop and punk, and you choose which represents the attitude at any given time.
