Approved: Chairlift – Something demos

CMU Approved


I love any premise to replay Chairlift’s 1980s-themed ‘Something’ LP – as was first released back in January – so a new EP featuring prototypes of five ‘Something’ tracks is fair game. Set for localised release on 17 Dec to raise monies for New York’s post-Hurricane Sandy renewal schemes, it comprises demos of ‘Wrong Opinion’, ‘Take It Out On Me’, ‘Sidewalk Safari’, ‘Aamanaemonesia’ and ‘Grown Up Blues’, each one a slightly skeletal frame of its studio-quality compere.

All four are free to hear and download now via the Chairlift SoundCloud page:
