Caroline Polachek calls Moogfest lineup “self-congratulatory PR” in new statement

Source: Brooklyn Vegan

“I have no issue with all-fem/gnc lineup, but that’s not what Moogfest is….this speaks not to the artists or their music, but to the politics of the festival and self-congratulatory PR. To do this without permission from the artists on display is exploitive and unprofessional.”

Chairlifts’ Caroline Polachek unveils anti-pop solo album under Ramona Lisa moniker

Source: Deli Magazine NY

Chairlift, brainchild of singer/keyboardist/composer Caroline Polachek, has been one of our favorite NYC pop bands since they broke out back in 2008, when they graced the cover of our Best of NYC issue – those were the times of single "Bruised," blessed by an Apple ad.

Caroline is now announcing the release of a solo album – to be released on Terrible Records in April – under the moniker Ramona Lisa. Preview single and video "Arcadia" (streaming below) shows us an unexpectedly gloomy atmoshpere, so much so that we are tempted to think this is not just a parallel project, but ...

Barcelona dance pop outfit Delorean recently released their fourth album Apar back in September. A little more calm than their previous releases, Apar still delivers on the grand pop front, sounding epic and catchy. Originally planning an October / November US tour, the members of Delorean were kidnapped and taken hostage in Mexico for about thirty hours. After this experience, the band cancelled their original string of US tour dates and reschedule for early next year. In addition to this personal news, Delorean just released a visual-bending music video for the single “Unhold” featuring Chairlift‘s Caroline Polachek. The song is led by Polachek’s wonderful voice, with backing bass lines and synthesizers that make for a warm and blissful track. Watch the video below for some excellent visual accompaniment featuring Polachek wandering through a shapeshifting sculpture park in New York. Pick up Apar here, and find tickets to their show at Johnny Brenda’s here.

Chairlift in Japanese!

 

We have none other than Jessie Ware (via facebook) to thank for this gem of a video. And oh what a video.

You’ve simply got to see Caroline Polachek’s awful hair in action as she sings “I Belong in Your Arms” in J-a-p-a-n-e-s-e. Pitchfork tells us Polachek co-directed. It’s no “Amanaemonesia” but it’s pretty great.

 

What do you think? Prefer this version, or the original (in English)?
