cd cover Fayvish
Yiddpop (Oriente)

The Berlin based band brings together what they believe has been separated for a too long time: songwriting, punkpop, jazz and Yiddish music. Steffen Illner (double bass), Philipp Bernhardt (drums), and Fabian Schnedler (guitar/voice/songwriting) with Alan Bern (accordion, melodica, keyboards) and Paul Brody (trumpet) as guest musicians blend these ingredients with utter coolness. The lyrics by modern and contemporary Yiddish poets (e.g. Peretz Markish, Itzik Manger, Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman, Morris Rosenfeld or Peretz Miranksy) risk a sly look at today’s bitters of life.

Alan Bern says: "The band grooves like mad, but so relaxed and with so much space, you could drive a train through it. The chords, melodies, riffs and hooks are all freshly twisted out of something you feel like you must have heard before, but you haven't. This is the most individual, natural, flowing, and deeply connected take on Yiddish language and song I've heard in a long, long time."

Please note!
Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
