Vaadat Charigim frontman Juval Haring has started a new cassette label called Noar Avud that will focus on underground sounds and the Hebrew language, bringing Isreal's vibrant independent music scene to a wider audience. The first release is a bit of a calling card, a compilation simply titled Noar Avud 1 featuring 11 bands from Tel Aviv, ranging from dark synthpop (Or Edry) to shoegaze (Silvijan) to ambient (Nikolas Latkin) to more straight-up rock (Bonjour Machines). It's being released in North America as part of Burger Records' World Series and a stream of the whole compilation premieres in this post. Listen to the whole thing below.
