Brooklyn’s Chairlift play a free instore at the refurbished Pure Groove Records store in Farringdon tonight which now has a bar. They play mesmeric synth pop/rock tunes with 80s undertones.

The Deer Tracks @ Pure Groove Records, Feb 24th 09 by musicmule.co.uk

The Deer Tracks – Christmas Fire

So this afternoon I saw The Deer Tracks play a quick instore gig before they head back home to Sweden tomorrow. I was impressed by their ethereal, unmistakably Scandinavian sounding dream pop.

For fans of: Bat For Lashes, Sigur Ros and School Of Seven Bells.

Their debut album Aurora is out now in Scandinavia, its full release will follow here in March but in the meantime you can buy the limited edition signed 12″ from Pure Groove.

What? Passion Pit

One of my new favourites (thanks Dave) play a free instore at the wonderful new Puregroove Records store in Farringdon. Think MGMT meets The Avalanches.

The show starts at 13.30 on Thursday 19th Febuary, it’s only a small shop so get there early to avoid missing out.

Below is one of my favourites from their recent Chunk of Change EP (emusic) for your sampling pleasure.

Hope to see you there.
