While in school in Boulder, Colo., Aaron Pfenning and Caroline Polachek just wanted to make some background music for haunted houses. It was a pretty simple idea but the two had a complex sound. They were on to something bigger, so they opted for a change in locale and moved to Williamsburg in 2006. Less than a year later the pair became a trio with the addition of Patrick Wimberly, and Chairlift (above, playing “Amanaemonesia” for WFUV’s thealternateside.org) put out its first album of space pop, Does You Inspire You, in 2008. Eventually Pfenning left the band when he and Polachek broke up, but Chairlift continued as a synth-pop duo and put out another album, the well-received Something, in January. See them at Webster Hall on Tuesday night.
Singer-songwriter Valerie Teicher grew up in Bogotá, Colombia, and Vancouver, B.C., before heading to Boston to attend the prestigious Berklee College of Music. She’s since brought her keen pop sensibilities to Brooklyn, recording and performing as Tei Shi. And after gaining notice with the release of several singles and a pair of EPs, her acclaimed debut full-length, Crawl Space (stream it below), was released this past March. “Loaded with vocal hooks, sassy, R&B-infused performances and textured, groove-powered tunes, it’s a hypnotic set that’s definitely got its own thing going on,” says AllMusic. “Her bijou brand of left-field R&B shares space with Chairlift or Little Dragon,” adds the Observer. Now out on the road in support of the LP, Tei Shi (above, performing “Say You Do” live in studio for KEXP FM) comes home to play Music Hall of Williamsburg on Wednesday night. Los Angeles singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Lawrence Rothman opens.
