YACHT – Ryan Power and Ludwig Persik

YACHT is a lot of things. It’s kind of a band, but it’s mostly a genre-and-media-spanning project founded and led by Jona Bechtolt. Bechtolt is a promiscuous genre-smasher, using his unique breed of beat-heavy laptop wizardry and grunge ethos to endless collaborations with west coast mainstays like Devendra Banhart, The Blow and Little Wings. YACHT’s heart is the shows: uncluttered, inspiring sessions of damaged dance moves and synchronized crowd-waving, backed by constantly changing elements — PowerPoint presentations, audience Q&A sessions, and shamanistic video environments. Bechtolt and Claire Evans (now a full-time member) make anthemic power jams play them backwards and soak them in nearly-psychedelic cherry cola.

Burlington, Vermont’s Ryan Power makes stunningly outré pop music imbued with strange funk and damaged soul. Ryan has been self-producing and releasing music since 2002 until “I Don’t Want To Die”, his fifth album overall and debut LP for NNA Tapes in 2012. On his earliest albums, his gift for song craftsmanship was apparent through his breezy Brazilian infested jazz pop. His music has since shifted towards highly evolved and unfolding pop compositions. Power’s harmonic puzzles turned into pop hooks are accompanied by his blunt personal lyrics which address contemporary issues such as fear of death, hypochondria, materialism, the music industry, environmental destruction, lust, self evaluation, and identity crises. Ryan’s latest “Identity Picks” for NNA Tapes is a 8 song cycle that moves through lush jazz pads, a sensitive side of progressive rock, and aquatic smooth jazz funk styles. According to Power the eight songs on the album were written “to help give my life meaning”.

“Ludwig Persik grew up on the LES surrounded by the CBGB punk scene, and judging by his effortlessly stylish sound—part swirly psych-folk, part brooding dance pop—he was listening closely.” – Time Out

In July 2012, his debut EP produced by Jamie Lidell was made available for free on his website.
