Review of Aryeh Kunstler’s “Our Eyes Are On You”

Review of Aryeh Kunstler’s “Our Eyes Are On You”

For those of you who are new to the Alternative Jewish Music scene, Aryeh Kunstler is the king, in my opinion.

A.K.A. Pella Platinum Review by JM Derech

A.K.A. Pella is back and yes, they are better than ever. They definitely took their game up a notch with this new addition to their collection, “Platinum.” What they did, was take the best songs that have been released within the last couple of years (for the most part) and re-record them to perfection with [&hellip

JMDerech Experience – Avraham Solomon

I was a little hesitant about doing this report because it meant traveling through Brooklyn. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Brooklyn (seriously?), it’s full of a new beast called “the Brooklyn driver”. They’re fast, unpredictable and downright scary (no offense to Brooklyn drivers :P). Regardless, when I heard that Avraham Solomon, the [&hellip
