DOWNLOAD: Yacht Club - Nonnavera Mixtape
Lookie here. Ben Cook aka Young Governor aka the guitarist from Fucked Up, has a new synthpop project called Yacht Club, which is just as instructionally named as his other band. While the former is hardcore, the latter is decidedly softcore, so gushy in fact, that the group’s adjoining video for its Nonnavera Mixtape is a ‘80spolsion of shoulder pads and sideways glances, Vaseline lenses and suspect décor choices (red and green lights, smoke machines, a checkerboard floor). But unlike most other musical homages to the era of New Romanticism, this one gets it right. Download it through Pretty Pretty and Bandcamp for the sweet price of ‘name-your-own-even-if-it’s-nothing,' load in and then march thee to a white suit shop.
