Caroline Polachek of Chairlift @ Mohawk on 4/17
“After parting ways with third member Aaron Pfenning in 2009, Chairlift went back to working on new material as a duo. Wimberly said he and Polachek are very involved with every little piece of the puzzle that goes into making songs.
“We started writing [Something] at the end of 2009, pretty much straight away when we finished our first album,” he said. “We rented out a room in the back of an antique shop with a small window and a piano, brought a couple keyboards and were there for about eight months.”
The tracks “Turning,” “Guilty As Charged” and “I Belong In Your Arms” were produced by Chairlift but turned to producer Dan Carey (Hot Chip, The Kills) for the rest of the album.” [College Times]
On Tuesday, 4/17, the Caroline Polachek-led Chairlift, who were just here for SXSW, came back to Austin on tour with Nite Jewel (ditto) and Bell (who also plays in Chairlift). More pictures from that show, which took place at Mohawk, below…
