 A Hawk And A Hacksaw: Kertész

Banging away at 100mph, this is the maddest tune of the month. I love an accordion! This tune takes a few listens to really get it, a bit like the crazy instrumentals by Tom Waits. This track is from their latest album - Délivrance.

A Hawk and a Hacksaw is a folk band from Albuquerque, New Mexico. The band consists primarily of percussionist Jeremy Barnes, (drummer for Neutral Milk Hotel), and violinist Heather Trost. Inspired by eastern European, particularly Balkan traditions there is rarely a dull moment on any of their albums.  If you like Beirut, then dig further in to the world of A Hawk And A Hacksaw. 

The name comes from a line in Hamlet (Act II, scene ii): "I am but mad north-north-west: when the wind is southerly I know a hawk from a handsaw."
