Yacht I Believe in You, Your Magic Is Real
- Words: Josiah Hughes
- Label: Marriage
If hot records from Panther and Copy are any indication, 2007 seems to be a year when indie rockers are ditching their guitars for bedroom-soul records. Yacht's latest record, I Believe in You, Your Magic Is Real, is epic enough to be their Thriller. Normally one half of The Blow, Jona Bechtolt combines everything from layered dance tracks to Labyrinth-era Bowie, and the record's joyous jams are strengthened by collaborations with Bobby Birdman and Eats Tapes. "So Post All 'Em" opens with some soft acoustic layers before "See a Penny Pick It Up" knocks out a dance-in-your-undies Casio romp. Exploring indie R&B without drenching it in irony, I Believe in You, Your Magic Is Real is a crowning achievement.
