And now for something completely different. We’re going to hold our hands up here, offer no defence to accusations of philistinism, and admit that we have got very behind with the Hebrew shoegaze scene. We know next to nothing about it.
However, when Tel Avivian trio Vaadat Charigim got in touch with ‘ועדת חריגים – העולם אבד מזמן’ (that’s ‘Haolam Avad Mizman’ to you and me), we were pleasantly surprised. It’s a really nice bit of whimsical, summery indie. It reminds us of Teenage Fanclub and even has a fun (albeit very silly) video.
