Happy birthday, Neil Young.
Yesterday i bought a bunch of CD’s in Tower Records – Sonic Youth, Sigur Rós, Neil Young, Portishead, Joni Mitchell.
Later i went to buy milk and bought Shlomi Shaban’s new CD. That’s right, in a supermarket.
When Americans talk about buying music (or computers) in the supermarket (usually they say WalMart), they usually refer to folks that don’t really understand anything about music (or computers).
The scary part is that of all those CD’s i bought yesterday, Shaban’s happens to be the one that i enjoy the most.
Did i become stupid and disgustingly mainstream?
Or did the Israeli music became so good?
