YACHT - Summer Song
This information is going to be presented in bullet form, because YACHT is very committed to efficiency.
- In fact, if this onesheet could somehow be a PowerPoint presentation, Yacht would be absolutely thrilled.
- YACHT would use as many transition effects as possible in the PowerPoint one-sheet.
- YACHT's favorite transition effect is: Confetti (without gravity).
- "Summer Song" was originally recorded as a love letter to tourmates LCD Soundsystem, and released for free online.
- YACHT is as surprised as you are that DFA wanted to release the song.
- "Summer Song" was recorded, produced, mixed by Jona Bechtolt in an apartment in Portland, Oregon.
- YACHT has expanded to add an additional full-time member, Claire L. Evans.
- The Summer Song 12-inch also features two brand-new, previously unreleased tracks.
- One is a complex and empowering banger about living anywhere you want, from the new album, See Mystery Lights.
- The other one is a preemptive remix from another new song on the forthcoming/aforementioned album.
- Incidentally, this is DFA's first "audio handshake" with representatives of Portland, Oregon.
- At this point in the presentation, Yacht would use a 3D Cube transition.
- The music video for "Summer Song" was filmed by Portland director Judah Switzer.
- He also made that awesome Scout Niblett video where she puts all that bread in her face.
- YACHT remixes itself.
- Oh, and the new YACHT album is set for release in 2009.
- Thanks for your time.
