DOWNLOAD: Chairlift - Evident Utensil (MP3)

Chairlift

Chairlift played a free show at the 92YTribeca last Saturday, October 11, but if you missed that, there are still plenty of NYC chances to catch the Brooklyn three-piece in the next week.

First, this Saturday night (10/18), a Bowery gig with dance guru Juan MacLean and a Holy Ghost (DFA) DJ set (Tickets $15).

Then the band plays a packed CMJ-Tuesday (10/21) with three different showcases: After the Jump @ Pianos (5pm), NME @ the Annex (7pm) and the Deli Magazine @ the Hiro Ballroom (9pm).

The band (friends of MGMT) will then take off with Yeasayer (who previously toured with MGMT) for a bunch of October dates before taking off on their own to Europe. In December they rejoin Yeasayer in DC and then open the first of two shows Yeasayer are playing at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The date of the Brooklyn show is December 5th. Tickets are still on sale. Tickets are also on sale for the December 6th Yeasayer show. No openers are listed for that one yet

Grab and an MP3 above, and check out Chairlift's song "Bruises," off their new Kanine Records album Does You Inspire You, in an iPod commercial (btw if you haven't heard of these yet, what a fantastic, fantastic product).

You know, I thought BV fails to delete a lot of comments that merit deletion simply because he's too busy to read many comments, but now I see he posted his own comment right after one that he should have deleted. WTF, BV!

why does "tremendous pussy" warrant deletion? how do you know said anon poster hasn't actually partaken in the pussy and it was indeed tremendous? if that is the case, isn't that just as valid a comment as the one above it? perhaps, like the band and the album, the pussy is indeed tremendous. thus, unworthy of deletion. well done, BV!

Anon 1:18...quit being such a pussy. Deleting comments is a big time pussy move.

Really liked their show at 92Y. Did not even know about them before. More synth heavy than the recordings sound.

as a chick, I read that comment(misread?) as a compliment. and it did seem pretty tremendous. check out Charles Hamilton talking about his views that god is a woman.
