It was a quick rise to prominence for the cosmic Brooklyn trio Chairlift, who spun the canny placement of their song Bruises on an iPod Nano commercial into a rerelease deal with Columbia Records for last years stunning album, Does You Inspire You . Assaulting global consumerism within the candy-coated sanctity of electronic pop, Chairlift makes the most of glittery synths and Caroline Polacheks swanning vocals, which relay lyrics about eternal landfills, the age-old mantra of stop, drop and roll and learning to do handstands. Strip away the dreamy layers, though, and each song remains a prismatic jewel. Rarely this decade has a young band cherry-picked everything great about the 80s without dragging all the embarrassing bunk along with it.
