This will be the most beautiful thing you’ll hear or see all day. The Brooklyn electronica group Chairlift enlisted the help of their friends for this unplugged session in some strange and probably damp auditorium. surprisingly enough the acoustics in this place provided the right amount of wash to give the vocals the analog Mamas and The Pappas feel they needed. As for the footage, normally I’d say focus, but not for this piece. The fuzziness is dreamlike and soothing. It’s so cool to listen to music like this, it reminds me to keep it simple.
