DOWNLOAD: YACHTt - Dystopia (The Earth is on Fire) (MP3)

YACHT @ Coachella - 4/15/2011
Yacht
Yacht

As the song says, "the Yacht is on fire" (they actually see "the Earth is on fire - see below) (download new track "Dystopia" above). YACHT, long past the days of Jona running around the stage by himself with an iPod, gave an explosive performance on Friday in Coachella's Mojave Tent. Duo Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans look and sound like pros as they trade off vocals and instruments while backed by a very able band. Jona jams on guitar and even sometimes sits on the drums as Claire keeps the front rows hypnotized with her dancing, outfit and vocals. YACHT the dance band prove that DFA ("Long Live LCD Soundsystem," Jona proclaimed from the Coachella stage) is right where they belong. Their new album Shangri-La will be released by the label on June 21st ("Dystopia" included).

UPDATE: Despite it at first sounding like like they are singing "the yacht is on fire" in "Dystopia" (lyrics sites agree), it actually says "the Earth is on fire" (as the title of the song implies it would, and now that I know that, it actually does sound like "Earth").

Meanwhile, YACHT will be out on the road through May 14th. Light Asylum joins the tour as opener on April 25th. Both bands play Webster Hall in NYC on April 27th. YACHT band member and collaborator Bobby Birdman also plays an opening set at that show. Tickets for what might be YACHT's biggest NYC headlining show yet (or maybe the Seaport was), are on sale.

UPDATE: All instances of "Yacht" in this post have been changed to "YACHT."

She's got the look (she's got the look)
She's got the look (she's got the look)
What in the world can make a brown-eyed girl turn blue
When everything I'll ever do I'll do for you
And I go la la la la la
She's got the look

she's got the bulge (she's got the bulge)

What in the world can make a hippo dress like that
When everything I'll ever do I still wouldn't do you
And I go la la la la la
She's got the bulge
