'Mister Saturday Night Presents Chairlift'
Buy any iPods lately? Thank Brooklyn hippies Chairlift, whose irresistible single "Bruises" might be the only love song to advise strawberries to ice a loved one's wounds. Their debut Does You Inspire You shines with atmospheric pop confection, relying on weighted synths and whispered vocals, in a realm where the soundtracks to Fire Walk With Me and Pretty In Pink are one. Live, Chairlift's mimbo guitarist, pint-sized drummer, and Stevie Nicks-type singer bring it all home to Santos Party House, unleashing their orchestral maneuvers in the dark. With DJs Maurice Fulton, Eamon Harkin, Justin Carter.
