Bish Bash

Bish Bash, a fun alternative pop-rock trio from the heart of Tel aviv, sings in English with a heavy-but-proud Hebrew accent. 

“Bish Bash is the most fun and intruiging Israeli band at the moment” -  Timeout magazine

“It's like Primus and Talking Heads had a baby and It’s this band” - Bob Galewski, Moment of Eclection

In early 2018, the band was formed in an underground bomb shelter that was outfitted with a fridge full of beer, a couple of posters and converted into a makeshift rehearsal room. 

The trio quickly released their first  EP and began to play extensively in bars, clubs, rooftops, backyards and festivals all across Israel. Their live performances and music were warmly embraced by audiences and critics alike.

So far the band has released two studio EPs, one live EP and a single, as well as a few music videos and video footage from live shows.

Bish Bash are: Almog Ben Harosh (Drums), Merav Tzour (Bass) and Ronen Braten (Guitar)

Kino Motel

Kino Motel ist das neue Grit-Pop-Projekt von Ed Fraser (Heads.) und Rosa Mercedes (Josephine Foster Band) aus Melbourne. Nachdem sie sich in einer Berliner Kommune kennengelernt hatten, verließ das Duo gemeinsam die Stadt und machte sich auf den Weg. Nach einer schmutzigen und besonders schweißtreibenden Karaoke-Session in einem Keller irgendwo in Vietnam entstand Kino Motel. Benannt nach der Bar, in der die Band gegründet wurde, erwartet die Hörer von Kino Motel staubiger, melancholischer, düsterer Pop mit viel Öl und Sand und der Straße im Visier. Die Band hat kürzlich die Aufnahmen zu ihrem Debütalbum in Melbourne abgeschlossen und freut sich darauf, im Oktober 2022 durch Europa zu touren.

Kino Motel is the brand new project from Ed Fraser and Rosa Mercedes. After meeting in a commune in Berlin, the duo deserted together and hit the road. Following a grimy and particularly sweaty basement karaoke session somewhere in Vietnam in 2019, Fraser and Mercedes realized they needed to form a band. Named for the bar in which it was conceived, Kino Motel listeners can expect dusty, gritty pop.

The production unfurls a labyrinthine soundscape that swirls, twists, and turns. Sitting above the post-punk soundscape hovers ghosts of Rosa Mercedes’ smooth alto creeping into the mix, adding conversational tone of the track. Part Courtney Barnett, part Rowland S. Howard, the track (recorded in Berlin and Melbourne) features drums from Josefin Runsteen (Damien Rice, Jens Lekman), and percussion from Sebastian Maschat (The Whitest Boy Alive).
