"A frequently dazzling display of the trio's impressively far-flung influences." -Pitchfork

"You've never seen anything like it before. Cults have been formed over less." - SPIN

"Echoes of funk from Benin; Cuban son from Senegal; Chicano rock from Los Angeles; Afro-Brazilian soul from Rio de Janeiro; and the pentatonic and Arabic scales that connect much of the world - but there's always a lilt and an invitation in it. He leaves a space for you to get in." -New York Times.

It should come as no surprise that after years of touring with his band Monotonix, once hailed by SPIN as "the most exciting live band in rock'n'roll", that Yonatan Gat would carry that same intensity in his own act. Live, his power trio is experienced on the floor inside the audience, with contrasted lighting pointing at the band members as they tear through "a wholly fresh fusion of psychedelic sounds and rhythms from around the globe, with nods to free jazz and served with an unabashed punk spirit". Gat's 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.
