Boomkat Product Review:
Young Turks present the anticipated UK release of Chairlift's sophomore album, 'Something'. Pop pickers should be first alerted to the fact that 'Something' is produced by Dan Carey, whose production / writing /r emixing credits include everyone from M.I.A. to Lily Allen and The Kills, and also Alan Moulder whose CV boasts work with My Bloody Valentine and Depeche Mode - just so you know what we're dealing with. Together with Chairlift they've achieved an arguably massive sound, weaving the shiniest '80s megapop hooks with timelessly ethereal vocals, disco-prime basslines and the sort of arrangements which beg you to come back and explore them over and again. After listening to the likes of dream-sequence drifter 'Turning' or the magically cloudy 'Cool As A Fire' it should come as no surprise that singer Caroline Polachek has already collaborated with Washed Out on 'You and I', although her co-pilot Patrick Wimberly's connections to Das Racist are less obvious, although may account for the subliminal, underlying sinister tone which gives the group headspace beyond the more clean cut dream-pop types.
