This isn’t yacht rock—it’s YACHT rock. The long-running project of Portland musician Jona Bechtolt, which added Claire L. Evans as a member about two albums ago, traffics in theatrical synthetic disco and plays shows that border on performance art. Even though they live in L.A. now, the whole shtick has a very Portlandia vibe, with a book of personal philosophy called The Secret Teachings of the Mystery Lights published and lyrics that reflect on utopias and self-help. Thankfully, the tunes are catchy enough in that DFA-indebted way (so spiky! So blippy!) that the extracurricular stuff doesn’t distract, and judging by the eponymous lead single of I Thought the Future Would Be Cooler, neither the funk nor the brainy shtick show any signs of letting up.
