William Tyler is a native of Nashville, Tennessee, a town where guitarists are as common as television sets or pigeons. At an early age, he began playing and recording with artists that resided at the fringes of the country and folk vernacular, such as the Silver Jews, Lambchop, and Cortney Tidwell. He also found himself doing session work with artists as diverse as country legend Charlie Louvin and soul singer Candi Staton. All the while, Tyler was at home working on fragmentary guitar pieces and tape collages under the moniker the Paper Hats, calling on the spirit of Sandy Bull and the early Siltbreeze catalog.

In 2008, his longtime friend and sometime collaborator Volker Zander released a Paper Hats LP “Deseret Canyon” on his Apparent Extent imprint, and the two toured in Europe. Now Tyler has released his first album under his own name, “Behold the Spirit” (Tompkins Square), a collection of acoustic and electric guitar works intertwined with open form audio landscapes and delicately arranged instrumentation. Equal parts Appalachian drone and ambient noise, “Behold the Spirit” is a series of homages to ancient melodies, dead languages, and ghosts. Live, Tyler has collaborated or shared bills with Michael Chapman, Yo La Tengo, Lambchop, Eric Carbonara, David Daniell, Rhys Chatham, Wooden Wand, Paul Metzger, Mountains, Steve Gunn, among others.

YONATAN GAT

“Kaleidoscopic, a cosmically minded and punk-grounded improvisational journey” – SPIN

“Best Guitarist in New York, 2013” – Village Voice 

Yonatan Gat and his band are doing something you will not see anywhere else. The power trio sets up on the floor of every venue from giant clubs to basements—DIY style among sweaty dancing bodies—playing intricate improvisation sets that channel “everything from Afrobeat grooves to Middle Eastern folk melodies to straight up rock n’ roll noise, sometimes all within the span of one song – weaving the global smattering of styles seamlessly together like the great jazz musicians of the ‘60s,” (The Bay Bridged)

Gat’s reverb-drenched guitar offensive takes simultaneous lead and rhythm duties, backed by Gal Lazer’s hard-hitting African-inspired grooves, and Sergio Sayeg’s (of Brazilian garage rockers Garotas Suecas) pumping bass.
