In addition to dropping records like the bouncy See Mystery Lights, YACHT has spent time working on various music-free "supplementary materials." These include everything from mixtapes to that baffling The Secret Teachings of the Mystery Lights: A Handbook for Overcoming Humanity and Becoming Your Own God pamphlet. Now you can add this poster to that list.
This massive—2'3" x 3'3"—poster chronicles all the band's influences from 2007-2009. Just a few of the influences included are the Branch Davidian Seventh Day Adventists, Aleister Crowley (not just an Ozzy song), and Star Trek. (Not sure why the band just got into Star Trek in the past two years, but I guess there is no denying the appeal of the Enterprise.) You can buy this huge piece of wall art for $12 via the Marriage Records site.
Sadly, if my influences were to be captured on a single poster, it would look like this.
