Comment: I guess Eli Las' planet could be a nice place with good weather, intense sunshine and nice and naked women to meet with and populate the planet. As in the Bible it is said your duty is to multiply and to exist in masses. Eli Las' duty was to increase the discography of the Israeli imprint Birdsong. It is an interesting issue mirroring on the movement of the New Weird and DIY in the 00s. As much as my cerebral focus could remember for it was a very enthusiastic time with great hopes and an immense amount of solid music from artists' bedrooms. Then such great artists of a new generation as Animal Collective, and Ariel Pink started to appear through the underground music to build up a new narrative in the indie/alternative pop scene. By the way, the latter of them is Jewish. Eli Las sings in (new) Hebrew and in English and manipulates with different styles (including grunge, coldwave and shoegaze elements) and exploits more and less electr(on)ic instruments to create something psychedelically tickling and inferiorly abrasive. In a word, it is an enjoyable legacy for the passed time.
