Yacht – Plastic Soul



Fun-kids YACHT bring back summer with new track ‘Plastic Soul’.

Currently based in L.A. (but originally from Portland), the core group consists of Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans, but expands to include musicians Rob Kieswetter (aka Bobby Birdman) and Jeffrey Brodsky as touring members.

We haven’t seen much of YACHT since their last album ‘Shangri-La’ was released in 2011. However, this isn’t to say they haven’t been busy. Far from it, as they have been developing their own comedy sketch show based on “life on the rock n’ roll road, as seen through the eyes of its least glamorous participants: the opening band”.

YACHT have still found time to make a music video for ‘Plastic Soul’ and show that they continue to have more fun that us!

With the assistance of Buh and Power Violence, watch the $5K music video for ‘Plastic Soul’ below:

The track has been released via DFA Records.

Let’s hope another album is on its way…

Holy Ghost! – Okay

Holy Ghost!

Holy Ghost!

The super sweet Brooklyn electronic group Holy Ghost! are Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel.

With similarities to that of New Order and Depeche Mode, as well as the more recent Friendly Fires, the band are the next great export from Brooklyn, NYC.

Their self-produced sophomore album of 2 years in the making is finally available on iTunes now via DFA Records. ‘Dynamics’ was produced with a little help from producer/engineer Chris Zane (Passion PitThe Walkmen) and follows on from their first self-entitled album which was released in 2011.

‘Okay’ is the first track on ‘Dynamics’ and immediately fills the room with a deep synth bass until the somewhat lonely lyrics kick in. The contradictory track is about a strenuous and demanding situation (in this case a relationship) that is similar to a B-movie.

Check out the video for ‘Okay’:
