The latest song to surface ועינייך שקט (And Your Eyes Are Quiet) was revealed in advance of an extensive tour and showcases the hypnotic vocal in a ballad in which the mind becomes transfixed and exemplifies why there is a strong fanbase.
The Israeli sadcore project of עמית בויום (Amit Buium) Cherry Coloured is finalising details of the LP Behind.
From the forthcoming album A Sudden Warmness, which was released as a stand alone single earlier this month, which is available on bandcamp, is a dreamy landscape in which to rest the mind through its almost seven minutes duration.
A thrubbing singular bass note opens the track creating a tempo which stays in the head throughout the song, prior to pastel shades of electronica drift through the ears with sparse metallophone and a vocal gazing through a voile imperceptibly building the volume of the track prior to collapsing in to silence.
The Israeli synth-rock quartet Guest Actors release the LP Under Those Silent Skies on the 10th of October.
From the forthcoming album True is a combination of melting melodies combined with an urgency of pace, giving the effect of a journey filled with pleasured anticipation knotted by nervous tension. Guest Actors are able to balance the two concepts in the almost five and two thirds minutes track resulting in a song that holds the listeners attention.
The Israeli new-wave duo Deaf Chonky are set to release the EP Silence Is Violence imminently.
As is fairly typical of this site, as you will know being a regular reader, the interest is in the genuine sound rather the the ironed out processes of the technicalities of mastering and – as raw as it comes – a live version – on its first public outing Frontline – replete with camera shake – misplaced lyric and unintended chord change –
…music as it should be heard…
all the no-nos those ‘more wise’ advise to avoid expressing to the wider world.
The England originating Israel / Switzerland based alt-rock duo ‘Les Paul’s’ (The Paul’s) released the LP A Mile Until Dawn on the 18th.

The dozen track just under seventy minute album takes the listener on an aural landscape of intrigue and discovery.
As regular readers know I am a punk rock vocalist from the ’70s and to me a song that lasts more than three minutes seems like an idea I couldn’t sustain, yet, within A Mile Until Dawn lay two tracks heading towards seven minutes long, with eight of them longer than five minutes – and the duo are able to have me thinking – ‘well they could have run for longer without me gritting my teeth’ as ‘Les Paul’s’ (The Paul’s) invest in each piece many ideas, yet none of them extravagant or extraneous and there is nothing that could have shaved from any of the compositions that would have done other than to detract from their value.
My selection from the album is the third – A Thousand Eyes.
