ROOFTOPBy Diamond Estate
It was around sunset on a beautiful and quiet spring day in south Tel-Aviv when drummer Yonadav Halevy, guitarist Yonatan Albalak, bassist Yogev Glusman, keyboardist Eden Ladin and engineer Jonathan Jacobi convened on a rooftop with a cluster of instruments and a mixing board to record a live improvised session. They invited a few friends, peers and family members up and from the first note played all knew - this is magic.
The resulting album is a walk with friends down a winding path at dusk for an evening of stargazing and the promise of an occasional meteor shower.
The Diamond Estate’s music is as their name suggests- fractal, precise and shimmering. Comprising four distinct globetrotting artists, gems of the local music scene, this spontaneous ensemble has a singular soul of its own. These impromptu compositions on the rooftop at eventide flow and progress in a sort of musical binary fission, arriving at, or rather morphing in and out of Ladin’s “Lonely Arcade Man”, creating an elegant centerpiece and a point of reference.
Gently spinning through emotions and chemicals, via minerals and semiconductors, grooving and contemplative, inviting your interpretation and involvement, this is an album to loop.
