“Sidewalk Safari”

    Chairlift is releasing its first album for Columbia on Jan. 23—a strange match for a major label which make a little more sense due to it being a deal struck in conjunction with Young Turks. “Sidewalk Safari” is one of the tracks from that record, which is titled Something, and is streaming below. It’s a sparse arrangement that allows singer Caroline Polachek to show off what she can do, including an extended spoken word passage and great bursts of energetic wailing. It’s essentially an enjoyable, low-key pop song, full of unexpected twists and turns that keep you guessing throughout. [via AHIAS]
