Chairlift's Music is *Adorable*

I saw a new band live. They're called Chairlift.

I find them, well, for lack of a better term, adorable. I don't think I can find the word 'adorable' in my vernacular or professional inventory but this adjective sums this Brooklyn-based band up.
Songs like "Bruises" have already entered the mainstream since Apple picked it up to promote their fourth generation iPod nano.

However, their entire album entitled Does You Inspire You is a bundle of cuteness. I suppose I can't really help but use words like adorable and cuteness when it comes to their music.

Chairlift is characterized by a whole lot of levity and their music evokes the pleasures of daily life for in its simplicity lies its real value.

I approve of them and they were, yes, adorable in concert. And who doesn't have room for some cuteness in their iPods? I sure do. At least a gig worth.

Here is an interesting bit about them I was made aware of via Liam.

That is cute.
Not that I use 'cute' all that often, either.
I've heard that Apple commercial, though.
This would be the kind of song to bike to on a nice sunny day.

Was the concert in a small venue?

Liam said...

i've been listening to them nearly non-stop today. also, my pal torsten said he had bruises stuck in his head all day.

I don't know what's more amusing, you saying 'adorable' or you saying 'cuteness'...?
It's a toss-up. :)

I also have Bruises stuck in my head. Catchy tune.
This is really an interesting sound.

-Right. It's a contagious sound. I had Bruises and Evident Utensil stuck in my head, too.
-The concert was at the Live Nation arena up in Cleveland. These guys opened for The Killers. They're the kind of band who would do better in a smaller, more intimate venue, however.

Y'all are right. This music is really contagious. Cool sound, though. Evident Utensil's in my head
