Yair Yona

My name is Yair Yona, I'm a guitarist from Tel Aviv, Israel, and I've released an album couple of months ago locally.

The album is entirely instrumental in the tradition of John Fahey, Bert Jansch etc.

I'm giving away the album for free here :

I'd be happy if you could listen to couple of tunes, and if you like it, post it in your blogs which I've been following for almost two years, and enjoy it very much.

Hello, Lizardson - it's been a long time since I checked in. I just thought I'd share a little of what I've been up to this year...

The Vertigo Swirl - The Vertigo Swirl (2009)

The Vertigo Swirl is my new psychedelic project and this is its first album. Five tracks recorded quickly and spontaneously in December of 2008 and January of 2009 including the epic titular improvisation.

"The three tracks in song format presented here are nice explorations in psych pop, but the real treat are the two instrumental tracks: 'Baited Breath' is a very far out soundscape psych song complete with backward guitars and sitar-like sounds that could easily come from a 1967 album...the title song 'The Vertigo Swirl' is another, more krauty, psychedelic masterpiece...(at) 22.47 minutes not one second too long! GREAT!" - The Homemade Lofi Psych Blog

"You're not going to do too much better than this if you're on the prowl for new psychedelia...everything here is finely crafted, and the instrumental tracks in particular will provide some mind transportation for your entertainment and enjoyment." - Dr. Schluss' Garage of Psychedelic Obscurities


Brian Andrew Marek - Utopian Flying Machines (2009)

Disconcertingly shaky, held together by duct tape and dreams but somehow managing to occasionally achieve flight, these are my "utopian flying machines" - 14 diverse tracks banged out in my basement over the last seven months at no small expense to my brain cells (not that I'm complaining). Recorded on the same old school Tascam reel-to-reel four track that produced "The Vertigo Swirl", this lastest batch of songs and sounds finds me yet again looting and pillaging all my favorite genres for an eclectic pop/rock blend lyrically covering such topics as love, death, work, politics, ghosts, Walt Winston, conspiracy theories and, of course, peanut butter toast and tea. As is often the case, my ambitions outstripped the facilities at my disposal, resulting in a murky, low fidelity echo of the classic rock productions I love - hopefully these sonic imperfections are more interesting than offensive to the listener. So here it is, a distorted aural snapshot of myself in 2009, unwashed and naked (but making funny faces here and there), setting off in my psychedelic airship. Enjoy the flight.


Can I join as Damo Suzuki? :)

Rake the Fonts

The Meaning Of (2009)
Cover art arranged by Lizardson

Karsten (Rake the Fonts) said...

Hi Lizardson,

thank you so much for your inspiring Time Has Told Me blog. It is really amazing that there still is so much great music to discover, even for an 40 year old longtime listener.

Being the songwriter for the German amateur folk band The Pickin' Berries, I took the opportunity to make some solo recordings when the band started to slow down. there were so many songs I had written that we couldn't do because fiddlers came and went, people got sick or just because they did not fit the band. I feel at least some of these songs should be shared beyond the occasional solo pub gig. Here They are for your listening pleasure. Files are @192.


All the best from Germany,

Karsten (Rake the Fonts)

Thank you very much!
Really nice recording!!
