Sabra Sounds

After listening to the self-titled album by Yasmin Becker, Lion Rosenberg and Moshic Shlomi, one immediately understands that the trio, known as Bordo, knows exactly what they're doing. Bordo's music is rock meets blues, electronica, jazz, and funk.

BORDO Self-titled (a:music/Hatav Hashmini) This album has been sitting on the Sabra Sounds "to be reviewed" stack for quite a while now. Almost every time the album moved to the pile of "this week's reviews", a big record label release would come along and displace it. After listening to the self-titled album by Yasmin Becker, Lion Rosenberg and Moshic Shlomi, one immediately understands that the trio, known collectively as Bordo, knows exactly what they're doing. Bordo's music is rock meets blues, electronica, jazz, and funk. The mix of genres results in a very enjoyable album. The group offers 13 tracks, some of them sung by Rosenberg (better known for his acting career) and Becker. Others are instrumental pieces by world famous Israeli DJ Shlomi. While Shlomi includes exciting club-trance beats, he manages to maintain a pleasant overall sound (and not a throbbing dance noise). "Kochav Boded", "Lapidim" and "Lama?" have made it on radio rotations. The group's other tracks are definitely good but not strong enough, by this country's radio parameters, to push onto the play lists. As for the texts, the lyrics aren't overly profound but they're not dim-witted either. On the whole, Bordo's sound is refreshing, and if needed to be compared to other local produce would come closest to Metropolin. DROR LAHAV Kol Hatzvaim (Hatav Hashmini) Another unknown album recently put out by Hatav Hashmini is that of Dror Lahav. Kol Hatzvaim is an acoustic folk rock collection of 11 songs written and composed by Lahav. His ballads are accompanied by an uncluttered guitar-drum-flute-bass sound. While the music is satisfying, the texts here are the album's strong point. The songs are mini stories about life's situations and its good and evil characters. The title track paints a picture of couple-hood - "Sarah" is a poignant song of life and death, and "Yalda" cunningly reveals life's sordid secrets. Lahav, a doctor by profession, also includes humor, optimism, sarcasm, and emotion in his words. These are not songs that will capture the radio play lists, but they are songs that should be heard.
