19. Kaktusz - derTANZ
As in 2012, there was plenty coming out of Hungary to get excited about this year. One of the very best was this album from Budapest experimental punkers derTANZ, an album of blistering yet meticulously channeled noise, recorded entirely live. Probably best summed up by the comment Sand left on the album's bandcamp page: "Strange album, after many listenings I still can't pinpoint it well, but I like it a lot. It is strangely easy to listen and captivating."
Well put, Sand. The album's available as CD or NYOP download from here.
A timely reminder, too, that there are now only ten days left to vote in the offiical festive fifty at Dandelion Radio. Tell us your three favourite tracks of the year here."
