Class Actress' debut EP, Journal of Ardency, was released on February 9, 2010 on Terrible Records, which is run by Grizzly Bear's Chris Taylor. Also on the label, the group released the single "Journal of Ardency" as well as a promotional video for the track "Adolescent Heart".
After a string of 7-inch and cassette-only singles, the band signed to Mexican Summer, who issued the band's debut, Crazy for You, in 2010. Crazy for You became an unexpected commercial success following Internet buzz surrounding the duo. Best Coast added a touring drummer, Ali Koehler of Vivian Girls, and spent much of 2011 on the road for festival appearances and tour dates. Best Coast's sophomore effort, The Only Place, was released in 2012 and featured a cleaner sound than their previous releases. In 2013, the duo released an EP, Fade Away, and their third studio album, California Nights, is currently set for release on May 4, 2015.
Summer Camp's musical style has been described as "21st-century alt.pop", but also draws influence from 1960s girl groups and 1980s synthpop. The lyrics, written by Sankey, are often quite dark and deal with failed relationships, conflicts and teenage obsessions. Along with the band's artwork and music videos they also draw heavily from American culture from the 1960s–1980s.
In 2014, they released their soundtrack to Beyond Clueless, a teen movie documentary directed by critic Charlie Lyne.
YACHT is a Band, Belief System, and Business conducted by Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans of Marfa, Texas and Portland, Oregon, USA. All people are welcome to become members of YACHT. Accordingly, YACHT is and always will be what YACHT is when YACHT is standing before you.
YACHT believes in reforming an adequate language by coining new words and examining the meaning of existing words. For example, Utopia means “No Place.” Thus YACHT understands its quest is in movement, not a resting point. For example, “I” is a story we tell ourselves. Thus YACHT seeks the undifferentiated collective experience.
YACHT understands that to feel part of the world is to be engaged in creative activity. However, creative output is powerless without contact with a spectator, who completes the creative act and brings it into contact with the world by registering its existence and interpreting its value.
YACHT believes art and spirituality are inseparable; both are concerned with the creation of something from nothing, with form without antecedent. The feeling or moment of creation is a kind of spiritual high that can be achieved by anyone with the willingness to transmute an idea into form. When we create something, we relive the first spark into consciousness of both the microcosm (ourselves) and the macrocosm (our universe). Art is ontological birth. No religious culture is without an image-making culture. In more ancient religions, the making of images is the spiritual act itself.
YACHT seeks to explore frontiers and to expand awareness of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (ETI). There is nothing marginal about acknowledging the greater possibility of life in the cosmos; it is chauvinistic, beyond the pale, to imagine otherwise.
YACHT believes that in the province of the mind, there are no limits. Every person is the master of their own neurological experience. Our minds contain the universe, by the act of comprehending it.
YACHT encourages the testing of these ideas in the laboratory of your own nervous system.
YACHT knows that to confront the world without ideas is to see the formless void.
YACHT encourages online dissemination of all things.
YACHT believes “Free Wi Fi” is not an advertisement of services, but a political statement.
Grimes named herself after grime music after discovering the existence of the genre via Myspace. In 2010, she released her debut album, Geidi Primes on Arbutus Records, followed by Halfaxa. In late 2011, she announced that she had signed with 4AD Records, who partnered with Arbutus Records to release her third album, Visions. Visions met critical acclaim and was hailed by the New York Times as "one of the most impressive albums of the year so far".
Grimes' music has been noted by critics and journalists for its atypical combination of vocal elements, as well as a wide array of influences, ranging from electronica to pop, hip hop, R&B, noise rock, and even medieval music.
In 2013, she was awarded the Webby Award for Artist of the Year. Also in 2013, Grimes was awarded a Juno Award for Electronic Album of the year.
