Oren Lavie, "The Opposite Side of the Sea"

Monday, March 09, 2009



This is the album I've been putting on constant loop over the past two days. You probably have seen the cool as hell music video for Oren's single, "Her Morning Elegance" as it's making its viral rounds on YouTube. I watched the video because Myra said it's wonderfully made, and it really is, but I remember being more intrigued by the music and Oren's vocals. His style easily fits into the singer-songwriter genre, in the vein of Nick Drake, Sufjan Stevens and Joshua Radin. He's got an easygoing delivery, yet the tone of his voice gives the impression that there's more going on beyond the breezy nature of his songs. And then there are the arrangements. "The Opposite Side of the Sea" is heavy on strings, accompanied by the sparse tinkling of the piano keys and fingerstyle guitar. I personally love the combination, it lends to the music a rather cinematic, classical feel. I feel like the story behind the songs come to life a lot stronger ... and truthfully, listening to his music makes me feel like I'm in a beautifully shot indie film where everything moves a little slower and the most everyday of occurrences - like laying safe in bed while the rain pours outside your window - become sublime.

Yeah I am waxing lyrical. I really like it! :p
