An obscure and quite underrated ’80s electronic folk album, Karácsonyi Magyar Népdalok (Hungarian Christmas Folk Songs) might not be the most appealing title tag, but trust us, this one is worth a listen. Ethno-electronic production meets traditional Nepzene folk melodies and nativity themes for a unique set of 10-tracks that range from ethereal downtempo to upbeat children’s synth pop. The contrast likely helped make the album a favorite amongst young and old in Hungary. While all the tracks are quite interesting production-wise, A6 A Piac Közepén is definitely the winner here and hits a sort of cosmic downtempo zone that’s clearly filled with the spirit of some higher power.
