Yacht – I Thought the Future Would be Cooler (3 stars)

Yacht - I Thought the Future Would be Cooler ●●●

Almost a classic record from Yacht

Inside this record there’s a stone classic trying to get out, although it’s somewhat hamstrung by the cloying pop shine of tracks like ‘I Wanna Fuck You Till I’m Dead’ and ‘Don’t Be Rude’. Yet, as befits a group who were signed to DFA until their last album, there are some sublime passages of lighthearted club electro too, like ‘Hologram’ and the Waitresses-channelling ‘War On Women’, the latter a sussed slice of sarcastic feminist pop.
