      Jewish Music Album of the Week: the Moshav Band's latest
      album, "Return Again" is a seemingly impossible accomplishment:
      after three other incredible releases, they're still reinventing
      themselves, this time creating a new sound by returning again to
      their roots. The album is made up mostly of newly discovered or
      less-known Carelbach tunes, but it could almost be a greatest hits,
      with every song masterfully interpreted in their eclectic style.
      With the soulful vocals and spare guitars on Shomer Yisrael and the
      hauntingly beautiful harmonies on the title track, you feel returned
      to the land of your soul. Then they rock out on Yibane reggae
      style, Pitchu Li is done Middle Eastern, while Hitoreri and Ufduye
      are great bluegrass. The eulogy for Reb Shlomo is from an earlier
      Ben Zion & Sons album, but they've even improved on this ode to
      their spiritual and musical mentor: the lyrics are even more fitting
      and true now eight years after Reb Shlomo has left us in this lower
      world to return again to the upper world. The Moshav Band has
      succeeded in producing a really cool, chilled out package of all
      Jewish songs, without losing any of their rockin' edge of previous
      hits. But the best thing about the Moshav Band is seeing them live,
      so don't miss the shabbaton next week. http://www.moshavband.com

      Have a great Shabbos!
