EP Stream: Chairlift – Something Demos

Chairlift uploaded a selection of demos that wound up in slightly more finished form on their acclaimed 2012 record Something to Soundcloud today for your listening pleasure. Don’t expect some raw acoustic noodling from the duo here – these are more like alternate versions, sometimes with more complex and esoteric rhythms and sounds. We’re particularly enamored of this version of “Sidewalk Safari,” which sounds a little more percolatingly dangerous than the version that wound up on the record. Check it out.
