Watch & Listen
Critically acclaimed pop duo Chairlift has released new music in the form of the infinitely danceable “Ch-Ching.” The R&B laced, vibrating drum infused pop track serves as the first musical offering from their forthcoming album Moth, which will be released in January 2016 via Columbia Records. Although the single is the first work to be released from Chairlift in three years, the duo – comprised of writer/producers and multi-instrumentalists Caroline Polachek and Patrick Wimberly – has hardly been quiet. They collaborated with Beyoncé on her groundbreaking self-titled album via the track “No Angel,” which was written and produced by Caroline and co-produced by Patrick. Caroline released and toured Arcadia, a self-produced solo album under the alias Ramona Lisa and collaborated with SBTRKT, Blood Orange and others, while Patrick produced and collaborated with artists such as Solange Knowles, Wet, Kelela, and Tei Shi.
An evolution from their last album, 2012’s Something, Moth proves to be an emotionally uninhibited and markedly stronger, more pop inspired body of work. A very New York City inspired album, listeners can expect to be led through an aural mix of big, rich pop inspired hooks, vibrating bass, lively brass and sensuous R&B inspired vocals, all anchored in the duo’s meticulously crafted instrumentation.
Mr Twin Sister
“Twin Sister are a Brooklyn-by-way-of-Long Island quintet that do so much so well. Their songs have a remarkable sense of atmosphere and romanticism. They nod at their heroes-- maybe Stereolab and Bjork, maybe Cocteau Twins or 1980s pop-- without overtly stealing. They seem to know they are capable of great things...” - Pitchfork
The band's self-titled album is the second full length album by the five members of Twin Sister, now known as Mr Twin Sister. Following their debut LP, composed largely in a studio, the band returned to the creative process they had employed on their first two EPs- working individually or in small, shifting groups. Ideas germinated in an environment where experimentation was encouraged. Some bloomed immediately, others matured slowly over the years, the rest demolished and rebuilt dozens of times in an effort to discover their ideal form. Progress was slow, coming in fits and bursts, accommodating the unexpected twists and turns of life.
Brooklyn rapper Junglepussy, known for her fiery lyrics that pack a punch and her unapologetic attitude, first started making music at the end of 2012. Since then she’s released two projects, Satisfaction Guaranteed and Pregnant with Success, given talks at Yale, Columbia, and NYU, licensed her music for Comedy Central’s Broad City, and walked in the DKNY fashion show. She's been cosigned by everyone from Diddy and Erykah Badu to Action Bronson and Le1f, and played shows with Lil Kim, Nelly Furtato, Travis Scott, Solange, and Dev Hynes. i-D said Pregnant with Success will "make her your new favorite MC,” The Guardian, Rolling Stone, Spin, and NPR all called it one of 2015’s best, she was on New York Magazine’s 2015 “Reasons to Love New York” list, and she receives support from Fader, Complex, HotNewHipHop, Hypetrak, Vice, VH1, MTV, Paper, Village Voice, XXL, Buzzfeed, and more. “Junglepussy means business, and she’s got the talent to back it up. With a raw sexuality and a strong message about female autonomy and empowerment, she’s a modern Lil Kim.”
