Saturday Pick: Chairlift

From Colorado students to Brooklyn Indie up-and-comers, Chairlift's rise has been rapid

For Chairlift, the experimental-tinged, ethereal Folk Pop trio that will be rocking the "Topic Design Tent" at Grammer's Saturday as part of MidPoint Music Festival, it's been a fast rise upward. Just four years ago, Chairlift — then a collection of undergraduates at University of Colorado at Boulder — was playing at a garage party for singer/synth player Caroline Polacheck's art class. As students displayed their classwork along the walls, they debuted new songs.

If I keep pushing titles into the following week, I'll be reviewing a couple hundred CDs in December, which could actually work out pretty well. The release sheets the month before Christmas are skinnier than my 401K returns in 2008, so I'll need to hold back some material for the lean times. But for now, it's all feast and no famine. Let's check out new CDs from brakesbrakesbrakes, Booker T. (of MGs fame), Manchester Orchestra, Chairlift, Milk & Honey Band, supergroup Tinted Windows and Art Brut, plus classic vinyl from Matthew Sweet.
