Neil Young And Crazy Horse cancel Israel gig over security concerns

Neil Young And Crazy Horse have cancelled a gig in Israel due to the "current security situation" in the country.

The band were due to perform in Tel Aviv's Hayarkon Park on July 17 but according to a press release, via Pitchfork, the gig will no longer take place. The statement issued claims that Young and his band will return to Israel when the country is at peace with Palestine.

"It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness that we must cancel our one and only Israeli concert due to tensions which have rendered the event unsafe at this time," reads the statement. "We'll miss the opportunity to play for our fans and look forward to playing in Israel and Palestine in peace."

In addition, Young added, "I will be making donations to both the Louise & Tillie Alpert Youth Music Centre of Israel, and Heartbeat, two organizations that teach music to Palestinian and Israeli youth simultaneously by enabling them to play music together."

Neil Young & Crazy Horse performed in London this past weekend, playing a gig in Hyde Park as part of this year's British Summer Time festival.

The set list for July 12, Hyde Park, London, England was:

Love And Only Love
Goin' Home

The Fourth Uncut Playlist Of 2015

This week's big distraction has been what appears to be a crazy number of early Aphex Twin tracks accumulating on Soundcloud (I've added the link below). Among the new stuff, though, please try Bop English; the new solo project of James Petralli from White Denim.
