I knew something was up in the YACHT camp – they’ve been mentioning big things to come in 2010, and now they’ve created some sort of “super group” to go on tour this year. The name of the collaboration is YACHT & the Straight Gaze (I was going to ask about the Gay Gaze, until I got the pun). The new lineup includes Rob Kieswetter (aka Bobby Birdman), Jeff Brodsky (aka Jeffrey Jerusalem), and D. Reuben Snyder (aka Rob Walmart). That’s a lot of aliases! Anyway, check out the video above, and catch them on tour this winter all over the US (except here).
