Sounds: Yoni Sheleg // Spinning

I’ve had more than enough coffee for the day—damn you cold brew, I love you and also feel like I’m on crack cocaine—and this track by Yoni Sheleg is making me feel even more like I’m on an acid trip.

“Spinning” has the effect of putting you on a rainbow-coloured cloud, removing your worries, and making you think you’ll see Wayne Coyne at the end of the rainbow. The Israeli-born professional drummer joined one of Israel’s most successful international rock bands, Asaf Avidan & The Mojos (Sony) at 19 years old. I was no doubt doing some keg stand in the middle of a frat party in the Midwest.

During his 5 years of touring and recording with The Mojos he shared the stage with Robert Plant, Ben Harper and Lou Reed. All of this musical talent has rubbed off on him—and the New York City-based musician has seemingly taken full advantage of the experience.

The psych-rock track “Spinning” is a sound that I’ve longed to hear coming out of New York City recently. Sure, I love the goth rock that we’ve got going on, but sometimes I just want to spin on some clouds.

The release of ‘Spinning’ marks the launch of his solo career and I’m looking forward to seeing what else he puts out this year.
