Date added: 04/14/2014 Announcing... Yonatan Gat EP Picture Disc and Upcoming Tour!
Announcing the new EP "Iberian Passage" from none other than Yonatan Gat. Yonatan is best known as the guitarist of the legendary Monotonix, a band hailed by SPIN as "the most exciting live band in rock'n'roll".
It should come as no surprise that after years of touring with Monotonix, Gat would carry that same intensity in his own act. After five successful years, including two LP’s on Drag City and a world tour spanning 40 countries, The New York-by-way-of-Tel-Aviv guitarist and composer took some time to himself in Portugal, finding inspiration for a solo project.
What came out of that time is "Iberian Passage", an EP that blends together his punk rock influences with the improvisational spirit of Miles Davis. A masterful guitarist, Gat recently won Village Voice's "Best Guitarist of 2013" with a sound he describes as "homeless between the Middle East and New York."
"Iberian Passage" will be released 5/27/14 on Digital. The vinyl is coming a week later on 6/3/14. In addition to the standard black vinyl the beautiful picture disc vinyl is limited to 400 hand-numbered copies featuring art by Baker Overstreet.
