Recording: Yacht Club

Artist: Yacht Club

Song: Can't Leave the Castle

Recorded at Polyhaus ("Feast in the East 21"), January 4, 2013.

Yacht Club - Can't Leave the Castle

Full review to follow. "Quit hiding your hooks, artists," said Ben Cook before this new project dove into another catchy number. In Young Governor, Marvelous Darlings or any of his other projects Cook has never been one to conceal the pop imperative. The additional instruction for this artistic incarnation might well be, "don't be embarrassed by your influences". If the antecedents sounds like they might be True Blue and the Beverley Hills Cop soundtrack, that's all right when the songs are this catchy and the energy this infectious.

It looked like there were a few Feast in the East first timers out last night, which is great — hopefully more people got a taste of what's going on in Polyhaus every month. No line-up listed yet, but next month's instalment is scheduled for Saturday, February 2, 2013. You can keep an eye on Tad's webpage for updates, or join his facebook group to get invites for forthcoming Feasts.
