YACHT released See Mystery Lights , their first album of DFA Records, last year and it was a solid debut featuring some great moments like “Psychic City”, “The Afterlife”, and “Summer Song.” Luckily the band is currently at work at a follow-up but there is still going to be a bit of a wait until we hear any new recorded material from the band. In the meantime, check out their cover of X‘s “Nausea” that was record live on BBC 6. YACHT had this to say about the cover:
X has long been one of YACHT’s favorite bands. Doing a cover of their “Nausea” allowed us to lay hands, albeit momentarily, on the very structure of their greatness. To get lost inside a song we love, a song immortalized in our minds for its chaotic and sludgy performance in the opening credits of The Decline of Western Civilization. We wear Nausea like a cloak, a little ill-fitting perhaps, but draped with reverence.
You can download the track above and while we wait, YACHT are still on the road with their backing band The Straight Gaze and are set to play a couple of shows including a free show at South Steet Seaport and opening up for The Chemical Brothers in LA. All dates below.
