Chairlift: Take It Out On Me (Live)

Chairlift is a Colorado sourced outfit that relocated to Brooklyn several years ago.  As has been noted here a time or two, any Male/Female vocal pairing, ala Human League, is almost always a good idea particularly with a synth-pop new wave type sound as Chairlift has, but is one that is seldom effectively exploited. Chairlift do the M/F vocal bit on some tracks but could hit a little harder this area of largely untapped potential before someone gets to it and mucks it up.

Anyway, in 2008 they released Does You Inspire You?, which features some real snappy numbers, one of which in “Evident Utensil”. A live version of “Evident Utensil” is featured here in a previous post (check out the TSOI band pull-down menu )

In 2010, Chairlift were out and about playing Central Park Summerstage opening for The XX and with a surprise free show at Knitting Factory where they featured several new tracks from a new album in the works to presumably drop sometime in 2011, so keep peepers open.

I suspect this track, as performed live here,  is one of the singles off of the new album.
