New YACHT Video – “Summer Song”

There’s been a few developments in the world of YACHT since last we checked in. For one: YACHT is now a full-time duo, with the addition of one Claire L. Evans (to see the pair in action, watch them answer our lame Texas Trivia questions). For another: A few months ago YACHT recorded “Summer Song,”… More »

YACHT Remixes Stereolab, Ratatat

Remixes can be a dime a dozen (or a penny a laptop), but after listening to YACHT’s tweaks of Stereolab and Ratatat tunes for a couple days, we figured they were more than worth posting. Jona Bechtolt’s revamping of Ratatat’s LP3 track “Mirando” transforms the song into a new entity, layering different noodles, bleeps, and… More »

MTV Lets Us Know Portland Has Bands, Basements, Rain, Trees

Echoing Slate’s out-of-date Portland exposé from this past fall, MTV’s followed the momentum of their Brooklyn 2008 piece with a feature on PDX. What we learn: There are a lot of bands who live there, it’s still relatively cheap, it rains, there are coffee shops (one of which used to employ the Thermals’ Hutch Harris). More »

SXSW: Stereogum’s Texas Music Trivia – Round 1

The people of Austin are nice enough to welcome thousands (and thousands) of vagabond music fans into their city for a few days each year, so we decided to pay their stomping ground homage with a friendly game of Texas Music Triva. Keeping the music theme airtight, we had our friend Shea Hess ask a… More »

Free YACHT & Blow Instrumentals

Giving us something better than a penny to pick up, the always kind Portland beat-tweaker Jona Bechtolt’s posted a bunch of free YACHT and Blow instrumentals over at his site with the following note:I just made instrumentals of YACHT and The Blow for people to download, karaoke, chop up, reuse, sell, or whatever. Happy Holidays!Thanks,… More »

New YACHT – “See A Penny (Architecture In Helsinki Remix)”

AiH and YACHT are known to dip into each other’s troughs: they’re tourmates; YACHT was one of the many (many, many) tapped to rework Architecture’s killer “Heart It Races”; and we’re pretty sure they both like rainbows and stars (just like Jack!). With all that mutual, cross-continental love going, it’s no surprise to see the… More »

More Songs For The Summer From YACHT, Immaculate Machine

With no consensus pick emerging from our call for your top summer jamz, YACHT steps up to the plate with an unsubtly-titled track aiming for your poolside playlists. Says Jona:I heard someone saying that there wasn’t a definitive summer banger for 2007, and this saddened me deeply. I’m not sure if this is even remotely… More »

New YACHT Video – “See A Penny (Pick It Up)”

Your Magic Is Real. to Matt McCormick, he of the Shins’ balloon-liberating “Australia” vid. In return of Jona’s confidence, McCormick delivers this touching tale of touring copper, as YACHT the… More »

On Location With YACHT, Architecture In Helsinki

A couple of our favorite artists are rolling out high-concept vids for their blog-sweeping tracks and were good enough to pass along some still shots from the “sets,” as it were. Doubt you’ll argue that Jona in a penny suit is sufficient for the “high-concept” tag.

And here stands YACHT the… More »

New YACHT – “See A Penny (Pick It Up)”

The Blow beatsmith and Live ‘Gum alum YACHT (a/k/a Jona Bechtolt) has made the first single available from his forthcoming, third solo effort, enchantingly titled I Believe In You.

New Yacht Video – “Healthy Student”

Here’s a clip from a cool project from The Blow beatsmith and Stereogum Puppet Show DJ, YACHT. This track comprises samples Nirvana and ONLY Nirvana, right down to the fractured shards of drum. The track comes from a split 12″ with Lucky Dragons, who also keep to the Nirvana theme by sampling exclusively Bleach songs. More »
