Clara Engel There's something so free and rebellious sounding about this album -- the most punk rock and raw Yiddish music I've stumbled upon so far. Favorite track: Dumay!.

lucianorm This is one of the records which better captures the spirit of contemporary yiddish culture: one that instead of what common sense believes, has not died, but outgrown its own tragedy and became, once again, a linguistic polysystem - in which English, Russian and Yiddish mix in a revolutionary spirit. Favorite track: Ekh Lyuli Lyuli.

The Unternationale: dialectical klezmer cabaret. The First Unternational, recorded in July 2007 in Tel-Aviv with Daniel Kahn, Psoy Korolenko & Oy Division: A spontaneous orgy of -isms: social-, zion-, antizion-, chassid-, national-, satan-, alcohol-, modern-, all in alternating English, Russian, and Yiddish. It’s Laibach meets Theodore Bikel.
