Israeli vocalist Avi Perets has released a sampler for his upcoming debut album Kmo Aish (Like Fire). The album, produced by Avi Newmark, comes out August 14th.
Parts of the sampler seem to indicate the standard generic Mizrahi-pop and wedding ballads, yet several songs seem to have a grasp of momentum, scale, and satisfying melody that a lot of mainstream JM lacks. We'll see if the record lives up to its bold title, but there is promise here.
The album is currently available for pre-order at newmarkmusicgroup.com.
