Stats for this track
Anchored by chiming steel string guitar, World Behind Curtains marks the ascendance of Yair Yona from solo steel string acolyte into master arranger, pulling the post-Takoma school of playing along with him into beautifully festooned cathedrals of sound. His exuberant attack on the acoustic guitar can be aggressive and ripe with punk rock muscle, only to return with graceful and yearning fingerstyle caresses. World Behind Curtains marks a turning point in Yair Yona’s development as an artist. Make no mistake, this is not a steel string guitar album; this is an instrumental record, ambitious and singular in scope.
Here is the first single from the album, "It's Not the Heat (It's the Humidity)".
