YACHT Release New Single + Video

YACHT-SmokeYACHT unveiled a new one off single for the super catchy Second Summer with an accompanying  video directed by ADHD. The single is out via DFA on December 6th in digital format only.

This is what the band said about the track – “Second Summer is a state of mind: overcoming obstacles in order to be close to what you love, a temporal place where sun never goes out no matter what season it is in your hemisphere. Like the original Summer of Love and its acid house revival, the Second Summer of Love, our aim is true: to create environments of total freedom.”

YACHT - Second Summer by RADIO YACHT

They also spoke about the video – “We’ve been unabashed fans of ADHD & Ben Jones’ work since his days with the art collective Paper Rad and jumped at the opportunity to channel his rare strain of visual damage into YACHT’s world. This video represents the ultimate manifestation of our spirit animal, the Smiangle, morphing from an impersonal signifier of mystical subtext into something completely alive, surreal, and psychotropic.”

Watch the ADHD directed video below via YouTube.

Also of note: YACHT is turning 10 years old and in honour of this event, they are throwing a 10th Anniversary celebration on December 8 in Los Angeles @ the Echoplex.  The performance will feature material from their entire catalogue, with special guests, surprises and prizes for the audience.

YACHT Release Cover Track & Announce Tour Dates

YACHT has released a new track to promote their upcoming European tour. The new song is a cover of iconic avant-garde French singer Brigitte Fontaine’s “Le Goudron.” The track is a surrealist revolutionary song originally recorded in 1969 with The Art Ensemble of Chicago; YACHT has reinvented and reworked the track to fill modern day dance floors.

Watch the video below which was shot at The Smell in LA.

MP3: YACHT – Le Goudron (Edit)

Eventhough Claire L. Evans of YACHT was raised in France, this is the first song YACHT has ever recorded in French. YACHT said about the song, “we can only hope that our frantic, starry-eyed cribbing of Brigitte Fontaine makes us better people. In the meantime, we wanted to pay homage.”

New Releases: YACHT – I Walked Alone Remix EP

YACHT have released the remix EP for their track, “I Walked Alone”. The Larry Gus remix keeps the tempo of the original track but adds a gentle, warm, white-noise hiss of an well-worn vinyl record in the background. Max Tundra delivers a more electrified version of the YACHT original. Parisian duo Get A Room!, aka Rove Dogs and Jeff Masson give the track a house music reworking by dropping in synths. New York City’s Jacques Renault contributes a remix both with and without vocals.

MP3: YACHT – I Walked Alone (Larry Gus Mix)

New Release: YACHT – Dystopia Remixes

YACHT describes their track “Dystopia (The Earth is on Fire)” as a “post-apocalyptic fight song” and a “cautionary tale.” The track’s chant-along melodies and unsparing synths move listeners closer to dance than despair. The two new remixes of the Portland duo’s song, from their 2011 album Shangri-La, will definitely bring the same reaction. For the remixes, production duo Justin Strauss and Bryan Mette (aka Whatever/Whatever), completely rework the sound of “Dystopia” on their version, recreating it with a heathy portion of funk. On the b-side, UK-based Emperor Machine start their Dystopia remix with a spaced out, dubby feel – every vocal echoing almost infinitely – and then flips into an updated disco sound.

Take a listen to the Emperor Machine remix below.

The remix single is available October 17. Stream and download tracks below.
