YACHT was all right when it was just Jona Becholt doing everything, but the band really took an uptick in quality when Claire Evans joined the group. She adds an animated intensity that just uplifts all the songs and makes them so much more fun to listen to. The video for "Utopia / Dystopia (The Earth is on Fire)" is a two for the price of one type deal. They kind of remind me a little bit of early Devo or Talking Heads.

And if you like that, you should really check out this stripped down in studio performance they did for NPR. It’s actually somehow more visually interesting than the video, again because of Claire Evans animated performance.
