YACHT @ BK Bowl's DFA CMJ Party (more by Benjamin Lozovsky)

Electro-pop duo YACHT will be going on tour this February/March with Bobby Birdman. One of the only announced US dates (vs. Canada) will be at NYC's Bowery Ballroom on Thursday, March 11th with MNDR. Tickets go on sale Wednesday at noon.

YACHT's 2009 DFA album See Mystery Lights brought them on tour around the world (and to IFC's Dinner with the Band). They made video diaries of most trips - China, South Korea and Brazil are below.

On that same label are LCD Soundsystem, who are playing Coachella and working on a new album. A clip from the making of that (James Murphy is really pleased with his mansion/studio) and tour footage from YACHT's 2009 travels are below...

Ehhhh, James Murphey doesn't come across too well there. You know why people record in studios? Because they can't afford to record in a fucking mansion.

You KNOW that place is rented, so why hate. Its probably a pre-stocked studio you pay some insane lockout rate for.

he's obviously talking to top flight artists who could afford to put a studio in a mansion. He's the man and this album is gonna be very good.

Yeah def. rented, he actually lives in my building in williamsburg, which is a nice-but-regular sort of place. but why the hell not spend your studio rental budget on a mansion-rental ? probably the same damn price to rent a mansion outside of LA as to rent some posh studio in LA .
