Released: Jul 2009
Label: DFA
Yacht's DFA debut sounds almost like the work of a different band. The skittery electronic touches of earlier albums cede the center ground to more muscular guitar-drums-and-bass arrangements. Instead of sketching around the outlines of pop, they now trace the shape of their songs in bold strokes. "Psychic City" and "It's Boring" take cues from LCD Soundsystem and Hot Chip, while songs like "I'm in Love With a Ripper" open their arms wide to encompass '80s synth-pop and '00s R&B, via ZTT-inspired sampling and delirious flights of Auto-Tune.
