In his new home, the Village Voice named Gat "Best Guitarist in New York, 2013”. The following year his EP, Iberian Passage
, recorded in Portugal, came out on Joyful Noise.
Vocals were cut from Alan Lomax
field recordings, Gat's own voice and a collaboration with the Native American group Eastern Medicine Singers. NPR described it as "incredible, unforgettable chaos," referring to Gat's concert as "one of the most incredible performances you'll ever see."
