Released: August 2nd, 2012
Israeli artist Ori Alboher recently released a solo album “Unwind” in August. From the beginning, Ori grows a fairytale from the soundscape of organic noises of nature, voices, and simple instrumentation. “Behind Your Back” starts off with the essence of running water in the background, steadily building up into a folky, clap driven tune that is one of the best featured tracks on the album. Throughout the playlist, Ori does a beautiful job of using soundbytes turning them into looping beats like in “Soul Bird” or building a speech into an emotional soundscape such as he presents with “2010”. A very peaceful album that needs only one listen to gain great appreciation from anyone. If you like this album, Ori has a few other solo albums and is also a part of the group Folo, also which that recently released a new LP.
