    yachtlegourdon thumb Video: YACHT covers French anthem Le Goudron

    In 1969, French avant-garde singer Brigitte Fontaine teamed up with The Art Ensemble of Chicago to record the surrealist revolutionary anthem “Le Goudron”. In 2012, Portland electro-pop duo YACHT have, in their own words, “reinvented its naive-apocalyptic candor for a neon-soaked dance floor, our preferred autonomous zone.” The buzz of bass and disco-ready horns would indicate the transformation was a success, with the woob-heavy cut ready for mass spins in discos across Paris. The accompanying video, with a endearing, home-spun quality to it, sees the group throwing their own little dance party amid a sea of fog machines and strobe lights. Watch the video below and download your own copy of the track via SoundCloud.

    The pair’s latest album, Shangri-La, is out now via DFA. Below is YACHT’s upcoming tour schedule, which includes a slew of newly-announced U.S. shows for June and July.
