Oops, never gave this post a title...

I told you a bunch of times that the YACHT album I Believe In You, Your Magic Is Real, was good. Now, others have noticed. Particularly James Murphy who signed YACHT to DFA records after replacing Prizhorn Danceschool (they had visa issues) on LCD Soundsystems tour last year. The funny thing is that the track they are releasing first I think least sounds like YACHT. Who cares, it's great. Here is a version they released on their blog last year. It is pretty much the same as the current version out on DFA except the quality of the mix has been beefed up to DFA standards.
