YACHT - See Mystery Lights

After releasing three albums of original music, touring worldwide, and making scores of remixes for bands like Stereolab, Ratatat, and Architecture in Helsinki, Jona Bechtolt, the former half of The Blow otherwise known as YACHT, has taken his "life project" to new level. Last year YACHT (Young Americans Challenging High Technology) reincarnated as a duo, with Bechtolt joined by new full-time member Claire L. Evans -- an accomplished science writer, artist, and veteran of the previously-underground LA noise scene.

After they recorded a tongue-in-cheek "love letter" to LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy in the form of the track "Summer Song," Murphy signed the pair to DFA Records.
