Yacht is Portland pin-up Jona Bechtolt, and he makes the sort of plonker pop that makes you want to a) dance and b) buy some colourful pumps like the kids in the Northern Quarter. It sounds like electroclash meets post-rock meets no wave in a big art rock orgy.

Now signed to DFA, and having recruited female side kick Claire L. Evans, Yacht are heading at mega-knots to Manchester for a Friday night show at the Ruby Lounge on the 29th of August.

Their big record out at the moment is Summer Song, probably being played by cool disc jockeys the world over. Watch the video, hear the music, be a better person.
