Austin K. A truly eclectic guitar rock album. Typical guitar albums have become boring to me. I don't care who plays the fastest (though Yossi can play plenty fast,) but rather I care who writes great melodies, integrates new sounds I hadn't previously imagined, and takes me places I haven't been before. it's all about emotion and groove and feel. and that, so far, is Yossi's music. Favorite track: Drive.
Drive 06:18
The Routine 04:44
Sunset 02:17


Melting Clocks is Yossi Sassi's debut solo album.
It is a conceptual album about the daily routines of life and choosing between the path that is known and the path you truly desire inside your heart.
