Rotem Or

My never ending (and largely fruitless) search for good Israeli music continues. I don’t know if it’s just me but I think I’ve actually been seeing more Israeli stuff online than usual – unfortunately, like, none of it is any good either. Except for the stuff I just heard from electronic-friendly Tel Aviv songstress Rotem Or recently. It’s pretty good.

Israeli bands and musicians: send me your stuff! And you guys should sing more in Hebrew, you’re hardly ever as good in English, especially when you try and hide your accents. Why has there not been like an Israeli answer to Dungen, who sound uber cool because they sing in a weird, strange-sounding language – you guys would be perfect for that! Go up to Safed and give some Kabalists some guitars and drums and record what happens. Seriously. That’d be awesome.

    I’ve heard very little but I’m trying to get into it more. So far I like a some of the Tamouz album and Rami Fortis. What would you recommend? Can you send me anything?
