I must admit I thought 'Rockfour' was a clever-clever pun on rocquefort, with their slightly cheesy late-'60s sound, but I'm reliably informed it means 'four people who play rock music', which is slightly less interesting. Oh well. They're that rarest of things, an Israeli psych-prog outfit (!).They released three Hebrew-language albums before switching to English for 2000's Supermarket and the following year's One Fantastic Day
Now to our point - Supermarket is absolutely e x c e l l e n t. Great songwriting, with a sort-of updated early Floyd sound with other stuff thrown in. It's rare to hear any psych-influenced stuff these days that doesn't sound like pure pastiche,but Rockfour get the right balance between tribute and innovation,with a gift for memorable melodies that many (most?) bands would kill for.

Part neo psychedelia - Part prog/rock, this blend works perfectly here, (served cold with great lyrics) and the result ? ... a great album
