Yacht

...I then made my way across the water via the L in search of the Brooklyn Bowl to check super-duper Portland buzz group YACHT. While it would be easy to toss YACHT under the burgeoning umbrella of electro dance-pop, Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans take the genre to a whole different level with a visual presence that channels David Byrne, Annie Lennox and Odelay-era Beck. Behind massive hooks that might be best described as Young Marble Giants as the Delta 5 having a fistfight on steroids and speed, YACHT revved the 300-plus audience to a fever pitch with robotic gyrations and moon-walking grace. [Jake Sprecher]
Yacht was the only live act on the Thursday night DFA CMJ show at Brooklyn Bowl. The DJ sets were by Special Disco Version (James Murphy and Pat Mahoney), Still Going, Holy Ghost!, and Shit Robot. More pictures and a video interview someone did with Yacht at the show, below...
