Chairlift are an interesting new band from Brooklyn. Their combination of electro-folk and sensitive synth-pop casts them under the same spell you might find MGMT under when they recorded their initial ep. Though not as flawlessly produced as Oracular Spectacular, Chairlift might appeal to you if you're still in the mood for some good old wizard-pop. I'm kinda feelin' it. The new single(?) "Planet Health" is definitely elevated by the delicate vocals of Caroline Polacheck, which can be heard in the new video below.

The debut LP Does You Inspire You is scheduled to hit iTunes soon, but in the meantime you can get their "Evident Untensil" single here. It also features a MGMT remix of the track.
