Amit Erez is from Israel and there he has made his fourth solo-record and he did it very well. You can expect singer-songwriter- style as its best.
The fragile sound and the smooth voice appeal without breaking and without making you bored. ´Summer Conquered by Rain´ is the better alternative to Conor Obers and Bright Eyes, seriously. Soft tones, as you know it from the Kings of Convenience as well as virtuos sound variations and guitar stlyles (e.g. ´cinnamon scattered along your shoulders´ ).
´Summer Conquered by Rain´ is a must for everyone who has not lost a taste for melancholy besides listening to hard riffs and grinding.
This record is a ´collection´ of some songs of Amit Erez, which have been released in Israel already. And all of them are good.
Listen to it first, listen to it twice and then again and again!
