Published Jun 01, 2011Over the last few albums, Portland, OR-based dance pop duo YACHT have continued to expand their project in every way imaginable, from highly detailed musicianship to an increasingly esoteric belief system that guides their every move. As such, they're not the kind of group who would just release a normal mixtape. Instead, they've collected "science fiction you can dance to" on their new Fly On, UFO mix.
YACHT's Claire L. Evans made the mix for Boing Boing, and explains it better than we can with the following statement:
I've made a continuous mix of music that journeys deep into the musical underbelly of science fiction. Yes, finally! Science fiction you can dance to! Download "Fly On, UFO" to travel to disco dystopias and far-flung cosmic boogies. Visit the hellish world Cerrone's "Supernature," where scientists would do anything to feed the starving masses, including poison the world with chemicals that would create mutants down below. Sidle up next to miss Dee D. Jackson, who, looking at the erotic robot in her bed, polished chrome gleaming under white satin sheets, raises her perfectly glossed lip in a snarl, and utters: "Your body's cold." Raise your fist to the night sky with Chromium, who, seeing a UFO in the sky, beaming with promise, lights in primary colors like an 80s movie, are yelling "Come back later!"
Fly On, UFO can be downloaded here or streamed below. YACHT's Shangri-La will be available from DFA on June 21.
