Yoav's A Fool proof Escape Plan - CD review
A couple of years a go, my friend saw him open for Tori Amos. Immediately, she bought his CD Charmed and Strange and gave us at work a listen to it. We were taken by his amazing rhythm and his worldly tribal nature in his songs making his music rather hypnotic.
Last September he came out with A Fool Proof Escape Plan. In this CD he used a bit more of a ballad in his song, but you'll notice in a few he gets back to the beat that he's know for in the sounds that he creates. Of course, you may have to listen to songs like 'Greed' which comes of more like a WORLD PARTY song which I'm sure very few will remember, but they were magical in the late 80's and 90's. My Mom's favorite alternative rock band. Yet he bites back with his own dose of what he's known for with 'Spidersong' and 'little black box'.
Yoav was born in Tel Aviv, Israel. He's of Israeli-Romanian descent, raised in South Africa.Yoav's music is purely based on his own vocals and acoustic guitar, which he uses to create electronica-style beats with his hands. If you haven't experienced his music, you just might fall in love with it.
In Sucker Punch he sings a song with Emily Browning. I'm glad some his talent made it in to this movie.
