Yacht – See Mystery Lights (8/10)


Portland Oregon based boy girl duo Yacht follow up last year’s well received single Summer Song with their first full length album for DFA. It should probably come as no surprise that the bulk of the eight proper tracks here very closely follow the now (over-)familiar disco-fied indie rock blueprint of LCD Soundsystem, CSS, et al.

Thankfully, Yacht have the personality and ideas to make this a fun listen anyway: witness the auto-tuned clatter of I’m In Love With A Ripper and, best of all, the irresistible stream-of-consciousness pop rant of Psychic City (Voodoo City).
