Israeli Rock… Isreally good…? I’m sorry…

Psych rock. Heard of it? Of course you have. I have. You have. We like music.

Here’s the scoop. There’s an Israeli rock outfit by the name of “Rockfour” that has been releasing brilliant psychedelic pop albums for the past “a whole lot” of years. Their melodies are highly reminiscent of pop legends “The Beatles” (remember them?) and “The Zombies.” Upon listening to a great deal of middle eastern psych rock, it’s easy to see why much of it is overlooked. (Bad production, unfamiliar tonal scales et al…) Rockfour is just a bit different. They are produced well, and they sound great. They are also really accessible to the western trained ear.

They’re dropping some new steez (does that mean music?) in May of 2011 (just in time for our wedding!) You can find it here.  You can also find my personal favorite record of theirs here.

Whatever record you choose to get, please be sure to listen to this band, and definitely make a point of listening to more Israeli rock.
