Boomkat Product Review:
A remarkable set of acoustic guitar-driven instrumentals from this Israeli guitarist that draws inspiration from the customary Takoma resources as well as Eastern folk, Ry Cooder and Brit-folk heroes like Bert Jansch and Davy Graham. "Originally issued in 2009 on Anova, Remember received rave rumblings from the grassroots steel string blogs and fan sites, finding its way into the circle of steel-string heads. Reissued via ourResurrection Series, Remember is a fabulous and strikingly mature take on American and British guitar styles, updated with well-placed indie and post-rock flourishes and touches of Eastern European folk music. Yair Yona's playing is fabulous throughout, utilizing alternate tunings, syncopations, and an immense compositional instinct to lead a Fahey-type acoustic sound across a smartly placed landscape of electronics, banjo, bass guitar and strings. Tunes range in reference from Robbie Basho to Jack Rose and even Godspeed You! Black Emperor, comprising a truly ambitious yet highly accessible body of work. Remember is a gorgeous work by a young guitarist distinguishing himself as one of the most vital members of the solo acoustic revival movement."
