Video: YACHT, “Psychic City (Voodoo City)”

August 03, 2009

Our people Jona Bechtolt and Claire Evans bka YACHT sure have stepped it up a giant metaphysical notch with their new video. According to the accompanying blog post on YACHT's website, the duo were inspired by a strange event in the Lone Star State:

Two years ago, while traveling through the West Texas desert on tour, we experienced firsthand a paranormal phenomenon called the Marfa "Mystery Lights." This experience was a catalyst, and we soon moved to Marfa, Texas, to work and develop our already-acute interest in religion, ritual, and mystery.

This is not all that odd as travelers in West Texas often experience strange visions and internal reordering after eating the BBQ and beans at Rudy's outside of San Antonio—tends to kick in about an hour later. Still, this Judah Switzer-directed clip is beyond the beyond and we congratulate them on a triumphant realization. Definitely make sure to catch YACHT on tour right now wherever and snag the new album See Mystery Lights either at the show or from DFA.
