Yacht w/Onuinu & Jasmin Kaset 

When: Tue., June 5, 9 p.m. 2012
Hailing from the long shadow of James Murphy’s LCD Soundsystem and DFA Records (to which they are currently signed), YACHT’s evolution over the years from bleep-bloop laptop atmospheria into groovy disco-pop has been fascinating. Originally founded by former member of The Blow Jona Bechtolt, YACHT is a chameleonic electronic pop project, adapting to fit the new indie electronica hotness as it presents itself on the pages of Pitchfork and Brooklyn Vegan. As it stands now, Bechtolt (now joined by deadpan singer Claire L. Evans) has found a comfortable niche in the realm of chilled-out dance pop, finding more in common with Tina Weymouth and Deborah Harry than their frenetic brethren in dance punk circles. YACHT’s fifth album, Shangri-La, leads them further down the path of being a “band,” rather than a “project,” with songs like “Love in the Dark” and “Beam Me Up” pairing clever lyricism with electroclashy beats.
