shefel

Jerusalem locals playing post-punk, almost shoegaze noisy rock…courtesy of the great Uganda Records- a label out of Israel putting out alternative Israeli music from local artists. These guys are pretty straight forward with their sound, nothing profoundly fancy going on here, and it basques in its simplicity.. saturated with energetic overdrive and riffage a-plenty. Vocals are hollered in Hebrew.. singing songs about how only the sewer flows. Track 9 kicks off with naked spoken word.. clear as a bell, perhaps some Israeli person on the receiving end will be super pleased to hear their ancient language blasting through our airwaves. This is to be listened to in a room that’s too small, too crowed, hot boxed with cigarette smoke and human sweat. Loud and infectious. -Surfer Rosa
