Pitchfork Includes Yara Asmar’s “Synth Waltzes and Accordion Laments” in the 30 Best Jazz and Experimental Albums of 2023

"Yara Asmar was drawn to the accordion by fate: The Lebanese multidisciplinary artist found her grandmother’s vintage Hohner Marchesa in her parents’ attic and taught herself to play it, tapping into its warmly reedy sound to accent her synth recordings. The result is the drifting synth waltzes and accordion laments, a set that transmutes the instrument’s droning tones into a sweep of introspective, breath-catching moments of beauty."
