Editorial Reviews

There s a particular way the stars glow, crystalline and sharp, on a night when everything feels possible. This is the kind of exhilarating night that inspired The Shondes third abum, Searchlights (Exotic Fever Records, 9/20/2011), mixed at Brooklyn s Studio G by Tony Maimone (Pere Ubu, They Might Be Giants). Searchlights is an exuberant and fiery bundle of songs each packing a distinctive punch. The rousing and life-affirming collection was written after violinist Elijah Oberman was diagnosed with cancer, throughout his treatment and recovery. So, appropriately, Searchlights seethes with the energy of being alive the gorgeous parts, the terrible parts, and all of the in-between. Since their 2006 inception, The Shondes Louisa Solomon (vocals, bass), Elijah Oberman (violin), Temim Fruchter (drums) and Fureigh (guitar) have been forging a style that combines hard-driving, moody elements of rock with shimmering, joyous elements of pop, and truly foregrounds the violin as a rock instrument. With Solomon's raw emotion at the helm, they seamlessly meld influences as disparate as classical and traditional Jewish music and punk rock. The band is known and loved for their live energy and their affection for one another and what they do together. On this third album more than ever before that energy and camarade-rie is palpable on each track. The band s moniker, Shonde, is the Yiddish word for disgrace, and they have always talked candidly about being unashamed of who they are and standing up for what they believe in. The Shondes are looking forward to getting back on the road for national touring supporting Searchlights throughout 2011.

Format: Audio CD
The Shondes have taken the unapologetic, in-your-face passion of punk rock and deftly intertwined it with the richness and dulcet melodies of traditional Jewish music. With the addition of smart, soulful lyrics and catchy hooks, the result is at times haunting, at others uplifting, and always resonates with honesty. This album is ear porn and I dare you not to sing along.

I have seen the Shondes perform quite a few times and love their energy in person, so I was excited to pick up their latest album after their most recent performance in town. I am happy to say that I was NOT disappointed! Their spirit carries through every track, and I have found myself belting out lyrics right along with Louisa Solomon's strong, lively vocals. I highly recommend this album, as well as all their other ones. Go see them live, too--they put on an amazing performance!

Pretty sure I haven't taken it out of my car cd player since I got it buy the album and you'll see why. Great songs for overtly rocking out in the car and belting out the lyrics whether you can sing or not. Coney Island Tonight is my new favorite pick-me-up song.
