Bringing Back the Sexy

Annette Ezekiel Kogan tells all about punk-klezmer band Golem’s latest album

Print Email

 
For nearly a decade, the band Golem has been wooing people to the dance floor with its raucous interpretations of traditional Eastern European tunes, in Russian, French, English, and, of course, Yiddish.

With its latest album, Citizen Boris (JDub Records), the band ventures into new territory, performing original material written by its frontwoman, singer and accordionist Annette Ezekiel Kogan. Still multilingual, the songs are about love, death, vacuum cleaners, and U.S. citizenship tests.

Annette Ezekiel Kogan joins us from WBEZ studios in Chicago to talk about the new record.
