Samy Birnbach, singer and founding member of the Post Punk group Minimal Compact (1981-1988, reformed many times since) is well known by lovers of eclecticism, under the moniker DJ Morpheus since 1994. He is the driving force behind a variety of musical projects, drawing strength and character from an inexhaustible source of poetry and vibrations, eternal expression of an aesthete of our time.
The Meitar project, produced by Alex Finkin (Aloe Blacc, Roseaux…), was the first output, born of an encounter with RvB (drummer with punk/new wave band DeBurek, aka « DBRK » then FLETCH) and released in 2017. A new project : Milim Bodedot saw the recent addition of Jean-Michel Peru, director (and guitarist of said DBRK and FLETCH) and Simon Banon, multi-instrumentalist who found there a new platform for his eclecticism.
Samy’s new record will be released on Thursday, May 20th on RvB’s label, noFAT under the catalogue number NF01. It will be available on vinyl, exclusive edition limited to 200 copies numbered and signed by Samy.
This new record gathers seven original tracks. The lyrics for six of them were penned by Meir Goldberg. The last one, Lesiman Hava, was written by Samy himself, in the sixties. The music was composed and arranged by the whole band at minimal Studio. Two cover versions are also featured : Adaber Itcha and Karev Yom, a 6th century poem by Yannai.
The blend of the poetry of Meir Goldberg’s words, and a cross-cultural musical universe (a tribute to the Post Punk and New Wave era with a touch of Alternative Rock) brings authenticity to this record and offers us the opportunity to listen to the sublime low range of Samy’s voice, reminding us of the history of time and its eternal course.
Samy Birnbach : Milim Bodedot – New album will release on may 20th 2019, on vinyl, digital and streaming.
