Neo-bluegrass act Nefesh Mountain have released an open-air acoustic video for their new single “Bound for the Promised Land“. The footage was filmed in Hudson Valley, NY by Jeremy Hansen.
Founded by husband and wife duo Eric Lindberg and Doni Zasloff, Nefesh Mountain released a self-titled debut last year and are already preparing a sophomore record – Beneath the Open Sky, from which “Bound” is taken – for release this fall. The new album is set to feature prominent bluegrass musicians like Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Tony Trischka, and David Grier, in addition to regular band members Alan Grubner and Tim Kiah.
NY-based folksinger Oneg Shemesh has released a new lyric video for his song “Can’t Stop Loving You“. Set over drone footage of Big Island, Hawaii, the song, a funk/soul track about a struggling relationship, comes from the singer’s most recent album, 2015’s Shine Forward.
Raised in Mevo Modi’im, Israel, Oneg Shemesh was a neighbor and founding member of Moshav Band, and has also shared the stage with the likes of Soulfarm and Matisyahu.
Hasidic hardcore heroes Moshiach Oi! are gearing up to release their long-awaited third album, Rock Rabeinu, this August. You can hear snippet from the album below. You can also read more about their live shows from Michael Croland here.
Singer-songwriter Eviatar Banai has released a new video for “Leshonot Shel Esh” (Tongues of Fire), the title track from his most recent album. The track was produced by Tamir Muskat, while the clip, filmed partially in the caves of Beit Guvrin National Park, was directed, written, and produced by Gilad Avnat and Stav Nahum of BONAMAZE.
Tel Aviv indie rocker Botzer has released a video for his new single “ADD“. The song was produced by Botzer regular Ori Avni, while the clip was directed and co-written by Eldad Eilat.
The track explores Botzer’s personal struggles with the titular disorder, a favorite subject of his since his debut. Here, he examines how his ADD shaped both his childhood and adult life, while at the same time offering hope and encouragement to children with the condition. The video illustrates this in a surreal yet moving fashion: a child (Botzer’s real-life son, Yosef-Or), bored and distracted in class, draws and subsequently brings to life a box-headed imaginary friend (Botzer), who accompanies him to a strange underwater world, all leading to a hauntingly ambiguous ending.
