Anova Records-Rockfour,Anat Damon,Amit Erez
This week I worked on making the new master of Rockfour's latest cd :Memories Of The Never Happened. Rockfour are a veteran Israeli band that specializes in psychedelic rock and this is their 6th international release.I have known them for many many years having shared the same studios and through mutual friends (Izabo ,Tractor's Revenge) but this was my first opportunity to work with them and it seemed we hit it off quite well right from the start (these guys have loads of experience and know exactly what they want )
This album is extremely colorful and melodic with a healthy live playing vibe (unlike a lot of rock albums that are currently recorded) and loads of positive energy throughout .
They recently won a competition run by Dave Gilmour of covers for Pink Floyd's Arnold Lane the prize was to record at the legendary Abbey Road Studios and from hearing the tracks I must tell you it sounds fantastic.
The album is released by a new Israeli label Anova Records - this is a label run by music enthusiasts that make it a different species in the local music industry puddle . Their maiden issue weas to re-release was the wonderful debut by Anat Damon Falling a unique and charming Israeli singer/songwriter (I did the mastering for this cd a few years back).
Other artists in the pipeline Amit Erez another promising Israeli singer songwriter with whom I had the pleasure to work with on his former EP Black Light
Good luck Anova !
