In this week's Observer, contributor John Hood just goes off, really, on how much enjoys the above song by Chairlift, which, you'll surely recall upon hearing, was used liberally earlier this year as part of an iPod Nano campaign.
But a sellout this song isn't, Hood explains: "I can't recall when I first heard the tune, but I can remember what it did to me, and it was nothing short of astounding."
Hopefully, the band's got a live show to match that endorsement. You can find out tomorrow night at Hailey's in Denton--and you and a friend can find out for free, courtesy of Spune Productions, if you're the first person to shoot me an email with "Black and Blue" in the subject line right now. Good luck!
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winner..
