Give it up for Chairlift for being able to make me think I was temporarily in one of those hole in the wall karaoke bars in Koreatown! Wow. The above video for "Amanaemonesia" is delightfully awkward that still manages to maintain a level of beauty enough that I won't call it "weird". Props to Caroline Polachek for not only co-directing the video with Todd Hines but for choreographing her own dance moves for it as well.
"Amanaemonesia" is off their recently released 7" out on Terrible Records. Make sure you grab it if you haven't already.
