Chairlift

"2008 proved to be a whirlwind of a year for Brooklyn's dream-pop trio Chairlift, culminating with the band's recent signing to Columbia Records. Chairlift plans to re-release Does You Inspire You through their new label home on April 21st. The album has been remastered and features two new tracks. The first, "Dixie Gypsy" was produced by Chris Taylor of Grizzly Bear, and is more psychedelic than the band's previous ventures. The second, "Le Flying Saucer Hat", is both French and English, lounge and disco, dance and pop, and serves as a great example of the group's versatility."

Chairlift played a late-night short set at Santos Party House last Saturday. More pictures from that show and all tour dates below...
