YACHT released an NSA protest “party anthem” with Marc Maron on guitar (stream it)

The above is from YACHT‘s website for their Big Brother protest anthem, “Party at the NSA,” which the band is offering up as a 99 cent download, proceeds from which are going to the Electronic Frontier Foundation. On the website, when you highlight the text you just get to see the redacted words: “PLAY THE MUSIC LOUD AND ENCRYPT YOUR SECRET THOUGHTS.”

The track puts its protests (lyrics are below) into an early B-52s-style new wave format and features a guitar solo from comedian Marc Maron (!). You can also stream it below.

As mentioned, YACHT will be in town at the end of the month, playing Music Hall of Williamsburg on August 30 and then a free show at Surf Lodge in Montauk on August 31Tickets to MHOW are still available.

And speaking of Marc Maron, he is not part of the lineup of this year’s Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, but his name is.

Track stream and lyrics are below.

YACHT – “Party at the NSA” lyrics:
Did you read my mail again?
How do you find the time?
I lost my signal yesterday,
But it was never mine.

We don’t need no privacy.
What do you want that for?
Don’t you think it’ll spoil our fun
If you let that whistle blow?

P-P-P-Party at the NSA,
Twenty, twenty, twenty-four hours a day!

There is a rainbow at the end of every P-R-I-S-M.

Be careful where you look today,
Careful what you share.
We’re gonna make history.
But it won’t know we’re there.

The world looks stranger when you look
Through electronic eyes.
There’s a place in the Beehive State
Where the network goes to die.

P-P-P-Party at the NSA,
Twenty, twenty, twenty-four hours a day!
