Israeli psych-trance, electro group Infected Mushroom just released their latest album “Legend of the Black Shawarma.” I have no clue what the hell that title means but I dig the duo of Erez Eisen and Amit Duvdevani so much that I had to interview them.

“Ted Nugent has a gnarly stache.”
Stay tuned for my interview with Infected and Korn’s Jonathan Davis.
Infected Mushroom recently released “Legend of the Black Shawarma” and it’s a psy-trance trippy, energetic electro rock collection featuring such offbeat collaborations with Jonathan Davis of Korn (“Smashing the Opponent above) and Perry Farrell.
The Heavy are back with their second effort “The House That Dirt Built,” and it’s pretty nifty. Their new single “How You Like Me Now” is arguably the album’s best although “Oh No! NotNot You Again!” is a close second thanks to Shingai Shoniwa of The Noisettes lending some vocals. The album’s out tomorrow, and the band’s touring. They definitely raise it up a notch at live shows.
The Elms’ “The Great American Midrange” is a solid fourth effort from the Indiana foursome. “The Good Guys” and “Unless God Appears First” are highlights. While I dig the album, I’m hopeful The Elms’ next album will be their breakthrough. This is totally solid but doesn’t do enough to break away from the pack of similarly-sounding alt-rockers.
