See Mystery Lights


James Murphy’s latest signing have already released three albums, so unlike their labelmates, they don’t sound all that much like LCD Soundsystem. They’re also more percussion-driven and groove-minded than many of their DFA peers. Still, Yacht toil in the same too-cool-for-art-school scene and load their songs with tons of bells and whistles (literally). When they snag a melody and ride it – like on the opening “Ring the Bell” and the wheezy “I’m in Love With a Ripper” – they turn See Mystery Lights into a booty-shakin’ party with brains. And “Summer Song” is about as close to a seasonal anthem as pasty hipsters will ever get. But the boy-girl duo sound so detached from their music at times, it’s hard to find a pulse. And a mere summer song won’t warm them up. –Michael Gallucci
