Way to go Jona & Claire!!!

YACHT - (Jona & Claire)

Number 6 on MTV's Best Albums of 2009!

Higher than Jay-Z, Wilco, Mos Def, and Shakira. WOW!!!!!!!

#6. YACHT, See Mystery LightsVaguely cultish electronic music that's full of new-age sentiments ("It may come as a surprise/ But you are not alone") and cryptic notions about eternal life and mysterious triumvirates, but do...n't let that scare you. See Mystery Lights also contains some of the year's most gleefully fun pop tunes, all bloops and bleeps and chopped-and-screwed vocal tics. Sounding very much like it was recorded in someone's basement using only an old Casio and a MacBook, this is DIY dance music, though that doesn't stop songs like "I'm in Love With a Ripper" or "Psychic City (Voodoo City)" from positively glowing, much like the titular lights that haunt the outskirts of Marfa, Texas, most nights.
