Transgressive North have given glimpses into these two release via tracks by Four Tet and Rustie, as well as a Marram song featuring Owen Pallett. Today, they share with the world YACHT’s contribution to the BOATS compilation.
LISTEN TO/SHARE YACHT’S “ICARUS COMPLEX” FROM BOATS HERE
Say Jamie Chambers and Mike Brogan Directors of Transgressive North,“We LOVE Icarus Complex and are thrilled that YACHT, one of our absolute favourite bands, are part of the Everything is New project.  When we first handed out the samples from the Sun Choir album to all our magnificent BOATS contributors, we asked them to make whatever music they wanted, but to think about what the kids might like to hear themselves singing, hinting that the kids like to DANCE... 
 
So on that front, Jona [Bechtolt] did us, and the children of the Light of Love Children's Home PROUD. The kids went crazy for Icarus Complex when they heard it at our dance party on December 31st 2012, and danced so hard that the staff at the home started to worry they had a riot on their hands!”

MORE ABOUT The Everything Is New Project
 
Sun Choir by Edinburgh-based band Marram is an exuberant celebration of global community and cross-cultural friendship featuring  Jarvis Cocker, Owen Pallett, doseone, Irvine Welsh, Margaret Bennett and White Hinterland singing alongside the Light of Love Children's Choir. Recorded over 6 years in 3 different continents, each track displays a towering symphonic ambition, featuring the voices of the Light of Love Children's Choir among 200 instruments, including full orchestras and 1000-voice choirs.
 
BOATS is a 29-track double album featuring exclusive tracks from Four Tet, Gang Gang Dance, No Age, Dan Deacon, Bear in Heaven, Rustie, Son Lux, YACHT, Califone, Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu), Sun Airway, Taken by Trees, Capybara, Deerhoof, doseone, El Guincho, Keepaway, Lucky Dragons, Julian Lynch, Matthewdavid, Max Tundra, Physical Forms, Ramona Falls, The Ruby Suns, rRoxymore, Slanter, A Sunny Day in Glasgow, and White Hinterland. Each individual act used samples of the Light of Love Children’s Choir, recorded for Marram’s Sun Choir, to create a new song. As a result, BOATS is a diverse and kaleidoscopic concept-album with the children's voices at its core.
 
The Everything is New Project grew from a dialogue between the artists of the Scottish-based arts collective Transgressive North (TN), and the charity, Scottish Love in Action (SLA). In 2006, Transgressive North member Jenny Chambers had visited the SLA-funded Light of Love Children's Home in Tuni (Andhra Pradesh, southeast India) and found it an intensely positive institution deserving serious engagement and investment. Jenny convinced artists in the Transgressive North to enter a dialogue with SLA and collectively, the TN found they were deeply compelled by the plight of Dalit “untouchable” children. The notion of “untouchability” - that some children might be told they were less valuable than others - inspired the TN to develop the Everything is New Project as a vehicle to empower and support the children of the Light of Love Children's Home. The founding idea was to use the cultural forms which the children themselves found the most meaningful - popular music and cinema - to build funds and awareness in a project in which the children would participate. The project would attempt to counter any inherited preconceptions the children might have about their own value and legitimacy by giving them the opportunity to “star” in music and film works specifically designed to celebrate and empower their identities and means of expression.
