Yacht is Jona Bechtolt
Yacht is Wisconsin native Jona Bechtolt, who is also a member of The Blow. And, oh yeah, a sometime drummer for... uhh, ready...
Bobby Birdman, Little Wings, Devendra Banhart & The Hairy Fairy, Devendra Banhart & The Queens Of Sheeba, Thanksgiving, The Microphones / Mount Eerie, The Watery Graves, The Graves, Jason Anderson, Wolf Colonel, Dear Nora, Mirah, + more.
AND he does remixes:
Remixer of Architecture in Helsinki, Mirah, Tussle, Bobby Birdman, Lucky Dragons, Copy, White Rainbow, + more.
On listening to his own music I can hear the obvious talent leavened with a good-humoured wackiness that reminds one of Devendra Banhart at times. Catchy electronic beats buoying the often childlike rhythmic chants can't fail to bring a smile or an uncontrollable movement (head, foot, hips... take your pick, it's your body) to the listener.
