Rock Band Songs!

December 7th, 2009

Harmonix recently announced the opening of the Rock Band network to developers and music makers to upload and sell thier song as rock band tracks (See: http://www.rockband.com/rock-band-network and http://creators.rockband.com/)

 

When we heard that Harmonix will release Rock Band Network, our enthusiastic team jumped at the opportunity to get involved in one of our all-time favorite games.  We started making tracks of our own of music from our games, and have been making a few tracks for Israeli bands and independent artists using the Rock Band creation tools that Harmonix has released.

 

We are looking to make many more songs in the near future, before the Rock Band Network store opens.

 

If you represent a record-label, or you’re an independent artist, we are here for you; willing to put all our knowledge, skill and resources to get your music out for the Rock Band crowd, in the best possible way.

 

Please contact us, for your first step into the Rock Band community.

eatliz_logoEatliz is one of Israel’s leading alternative rock bands, which earned its strong cult following of indie rock fans by the band’s outstanding intense and extensive live performances. Eatliz is also known for its internationally awarded music videos and for reinventing itself in every live show, where the stage is a playground and every show is unique.

 

Eatliz unconventional approach to music makes it tough to label with a genre as every song of the band is an adventure, a toy to be played by the skilled hands of the band members, and a genuine declaration of originality and vision.

The album was promoted with two worldwide awarded spectacular music videos – ‘Attractive’ and ‘Hey’. Attractive was chosen to promote the luxury MTV Artists Spot that was made on the band, and also won the ‘Ourstage’ website grand prize, as voted by fans all over the world. Hey participated at over 75 worldwide music video and film festivals, and won 9 international awards, including the Spike Lee Award at Babelgum competition at the Tribeca film festival.

The music of Eatliz is described by the band members as ‘complicated pop’, as the band’s songwriting is eclectic and combines various of influences, from soft pop to hard-rock elements, brings to mind bands like  Mr. Bungle, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Bjork, Portishead and Cardiacs. The variety of styles the band combines in a single song, has helped them gain fans of many genres, crossing ages and countries to one distinctive sound.

 

Eatliz released an EP of outtakes from the first album titled ‘Delicately Violent’ in November 2009. The beginning of 2010 will see the release of a second album of new materials with Anova Records and a European tour to support the release.

Rockfour

December 14th, 2009

RockfourWidely regarded as Israel’s best rock export since Minimal Compact, Rockfour’s signature sound is a tightly knit mesh of guitar driven drums-bass-vocal harmony that hints at Love, the Beatles, Grandaddy and the Byrds. Rockfour burst onto the world scene in 2000 with the release of its first English-language record Supermarket on Earsay Records, an internationally acclaimed debut which was selected by Rolling Stone music critic Richie Unterberger as one of his ten favorite albums of that year.

 

The release of Rockfour’s second album in 2001, One Fantastic Day, also garnered accolades from top media outlets such as NPR, The New York Times, Rolling Stone and The Los Angeles Times (which dubbed it a “world-class band flexing its musical muscles.”). Opening for other bands like Dave Matthews, the B-52s and Blondie, together with appearances at festivals like International Pop Overthrow, SXSW and CMJ Music Marathon, has helped seal Rockfour’s reputation as “one of the most explosive live bands in the world” (Fufkin.com). After its first appearance at CMJ in 2001, Rockfour was immediately signed to the renowned American guitar-pop label Rainbow Quartz and subsequently released two more albums: the break-through Another Beginning (2002) and the follow-up Nationwide in 2004 recorded in Detroit with producer Jim Diamond (The White Stripes) in 2004.

 

Memories of the Never Happened marks Rockfour’s first release at AnovA Music and Cooking Vinyl and the debut of their new lineup! The album, recorded in San Diego at Earthling Studios and co-produced by Chris Berens and band members Baruch Ben Izhak and Marc Lazare includes 11 energy-packed tracks mixed with vaulting jams and melodic harmonies.

Shy Nobleman

November 7th, 2010

shystar_logo
Shy Nobleman is one of Israel’s most well known and acclaimed Indie
Rock singer. With some top ten national hit singles and international
critically acclaimed albums behind him.

What we now regard as Nobleman’s true sound took shape, when at the
age of 20 he moved to the heart and soul of indie music, London. After two
years, Shy had become a regular on the vibrant mod-garage scene, gigging at
all the major clubs and pubs that London is famed for.

His first go at putting his music to tape was the single, ‘Sad Song Happy
Song’, which was produced by Liam Watson (The White Stripes) . It
immediately became ‘pick of the week’ in Britain’s ultimate music weekly,
Melody Maker.

In 2001, Nobleman returned home to Israel in order to write and produce his
landmark debut record ‘How To Be Shy’.
Shy invited members of the local psychedelic band, Rockfour, to record
what became an overnight national success.

Nobleman’s 60’s like psychedelic pop tunes captured the mood of the
country and soon the album was voted “record of the year”.

By word of mouth alone, the album was picked up by music critics in across
the USA, with none other than Rolling Stone Magazine announcing it
as ‘one of the top 10 albums of the year in 2002’. Shy joined the ranks of
indie rockers The Hives and The Soundtrack of our lives as Alternative
Press Magazine’s ‘Top 25 International Acts that Can Take Over
America’.

A national coast to coast DIY blitz ensued. Shy hopped the plane to NYC
and spent the following months gigging from club to club, city to city
including NYC staples, like CBGB’s and The Knitting Factory as well as
every other hole from Manhattan to the great Mississippi River.

Not only was Shy’s extraordinary musical talents recognized, but his
outlandish personality led him to being offered his own nationally

syndicated TV show: “Top of the pops”. Soon after he got himself a job as a
host of a weekly satirical sports television and internet show.

Recently, Nobleman released his second full length offering ‘Beautiful
Life’. The musicians on the album included some of Israel’s leading indie
rock names : Geva Alon, Yotam Ben- Horin (Useless ID), and members of
the Balkan Beat Box and The Monotonix.

“Beautiful Life” was more power pop and had a harder sound than
Nobleman’s debut album..
Three singles, ‘Girlfriend”, ‘Baby in The Rain’ and ‘Wonderful’ topped the
national charts.

His impressive popularity led to him being invited to open for world
renowned acts Echo & The Bunnymen and Of Montreal. Even Gruff
Rhys, lead singer of Super Furry Animals is a fan.
