Things On Top Of Each Other

By LayerZ
Written and recorded during a 3 day session in the studio, there is a spontaneous and relaxing vibe on this album. Even the more intense and "angry" tunes tend to soften up in the end and dissolve into the creamy-washy space that creates the album atmosphere.

It feels like its a natural progression from "Memory Towers" - their first album recorded in 2012. Albalak was inspired to write lyrics and sing, Aviv recorded a solo album (Sol Monk) and got more into beats/electronica and Abro kept perfecting his bass lines and grooves.

The guests - KerenDun, Nitai Hershekovits and Marina Maximiliian Blumin - added a beautiful and unique musical touch. Each of them with his distinct color and attitude found a way to integrate and contribute in the best possible way, like a 4th band member.

What's the difference between LayerZ and Things on top of each other? It's a good question, think about it.....
