10 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Very quietly, Brooklyn duo Caroline Polachek and Patrick Wimberly continue to craft superior whip-smart pop. Their third album is tremendous: you could eat your dinner off the pristine production and its freewheeling, rhythmic songs dart mischievously around endlessly inventive melodic corners. The poised, scintillating “Ch-Ching” is the obvious centrepiece and “Romeo” surges by in a thrilling electro blur, but it’s the more dialled-back work that impacts strongest. “Crying in Public” is a beautifully self-aware love letter to metropolitan heartbreak while closers “Unfinished Business” and “No Such Thing as Illusion” are glitchy, cinematic and completely wonderful.

CH-CHING

Although I didn't get to have a MOTH release party with fluorescent lights, peaches, and New York style pizza, I made myself a big pillow fort and listened to the album. Overall, it was really enjoyable to listen to this creation made by two talented and innovative artists. Sonically, the album was gorgeous. The beats, sounds, and taps were all hypnotizing and fascinating. Each song elicited a completely different emotion. My favorite ones were Ch-Ching, Crying in Public, Look Up, and Show U Off.

Moth by Chairlift

Chairlift has always been one of my favorite bands, and Moth exemplifies why to a T. The duo has always been great at making sophisticated music, while excelling at creating arty pop tunes, and they really expand on that in Moth. You can't help but tap your feet to the shimmery disco "Moth to the Flame", or the fast paced running of "Romeo". The duo also experiments with urban, trap, and funk styles in songs like "Ch-Ching", "Polymorphing", and "Show U Off". If you're looking for something more like... "Something" (their previous album), than look no further than "Crying in Public", which brings the hopeless romantic of "I Belong in Your Arms" but as melancholy reflection. Similarly "Ottawa to Osaka" is as weird as it is dreamy, while "No Such Thing as Illusion" closes on a "Something"-esque chillwave note... While still retaining the vibe of previous tracks. This album is easily their most accessible, and by far their most fun.
