I hope all you moms had a great Mother’s Day!
Today’s edition includes: Tel Aviv indie rockers, Lorena B.; plus our favorite weekly tracks, considerations, and videos!
On the Radar: Lorena B
Lorena B specialize in the experimental electronic genre. Their influences include soft icelandic and harsh electronica, they seem to favor Radiohead. Their debut, Siblings, was electronically released on April 30, and they are set tour the UK starting May 10. Adi Ulmansky’s vocals are at once piercing and melancholy. Guitarists Roey Avital and Yoav Sa’ar play nuanced melodies and riffs, while Ilan Tennenbaum’s double duty on drums and bass is more than impressive. Tennembaum is a strong foundation upon which the entire band can rest and roam freely.
