Master guitarist and improviser, Yonatan Gat (Monotonix) is back with 11 new punk-inspired, psychedelic mind-melters.


‘Director’ is a a genre-bending opus that finds the Gat and his band seamlessly exploring different styles of music from Brazilian psych and Afrobeat to free jazz, Middle Eastern surf and 20th century classical avant-garde, sometimes in the span of just one song - “weaving styles together like the great jazz musicians of the 60’s,” (The Bay Bridged).


Gat was recently profiled in the NY Times, and his music was featured on Pitchfork, Vice, SPIN, and Village Voice, who called him “Best Guitarist in New York, 2013”. His unparalleled guitar remains mysterious, wildly inventive and dynamic, taking unexpected psychedelic turns throughout the recordings, backed by Gal Lazer’s virtuosic hard-hitting African-inspired grooves, and Sergio Sayeg’s (of Brazilian garage rockers Garotas Suecas) pumping bass.
