Why Yonatan Gat Rules by Tyler Belluz (2016)
If there’s one band that I can personally attest to their ability to steal the spotlight, look no further than Yonatan Gat. Not only will their incredibly intricate drumming patterns make you smile upon amazement, a bass player who’s shoulders don’t quit, all the while falling in love with Yonatan’s melodic, yet aggressive solos. Picture the drummer from Can making whoopee with Dick Dale, both on psychedelics.
When they started, as aforementioned, I smiled. God man, it was just all out glee. I don’t want to sound like a fan boy but I ran to the ATM so I could grab their vinyl — something I rarely do. God man, God. It was amazing.
Even though this show was played in front of an under appreciated attendance, it didn’t stop the New York based band from playing one of my favorite live shows I’ve ever seen. Trust me, I hate everything.
