a couple of friends of mine in new york are part of a band called ‘Yiddish Princess’. Their description? “Double guitar onslaught. Drums beating you into submission. Precious analog synths beckoning. And a voice that can shatter ice and coo you into mellifluous bliss. Oyf Yiddish. Looking to reconcile your love of power pop and hard rock with your love of Yiddish music? Your search is over. Behold, Yiddish Princess. With Sarah Gordon – vocals. Michael Winograd – synth. Yoshie Fruchter – rhythm guitar. Avi Fox-Rosen – lead guitar. Ari Folman-Cohen – bass. Chris Berry – drums.”

and their sound is all kinds of amazing. you must have a listen to them on their newly updated myspace page, to be found here. and if you’re interested in new things happening in yiddish/jewish music in new york, you should follow all these individuals in their various music projects.

sigh. one of the many reasons why i wish i was in new york…
