Bossa Nova covers of Punk Rock gems reissued! When this came out in 2004, the indie world took notice and then so did everybody else. The self titled album is front to back covers of the best Punk / New Wave tunes from the likes of Joy Division, Depeche Mode, The Undertones, The Specials + more. The music is easy listening for the modern listener that is somewhat kitschy but nowhere near cheesy and the nostalgic sense works on so many levels from the obvious vintage exotic 60s feels but then once you realize they are covering what once was a guitar driven, angst filled punk tune it makes everything charmin. Recommended for fans of Air, Stereolab, and Soko.
