13. NnEvTeIgA - Nnevteiga (Tendress)
Crazy brilliance from this Japanese band who take loads of disparate elements and glue them together with demented noise. The result is a mad brainshaker of an album with too many high points to list here among its twelve tracks, but I'll try one: 'ItA EkUTshI' crams more into its two minutes than most bands could come up with in a lifetime.
Get it as NYOP here.
Just three days left to vote in the official festive fifty here.
