Thread: Chill wave?

  1. #1

    Default Chill wave?

    Thoughts on this up-and-coming genre? The only "chill wave" artists I've listened to are Washed Out, Toro Y Moi, and Blackbird Blackbird, and I enjoy all of their music. Any other good chill wave artists to look out for?

    I feel like it's already mostly died out, but yeah, lots of good stuff. Can elaborate more later perhaps, but check out: Namine, Beat Connection, DyE, Dream Cop, Teen Daze, Chilly Willy, Brother Tiger, Star Slinger


    Lefty's whillwave mixtapes from 2010 are an awesome sampling:

    Not sure why I'm taking the bait but... I think chillwave has peaked already and is already on the decline even though I dig some acts. Neon Indian is playing Coachella this year and is considered part of that genre, maybe Keep Shelly In Athens could be considered too?

    I'm also a fan of millionyoung. He's last ep is pretty great. Also has a great track called mien. Saw him perform live a little over a year ago and he and his band are good. Haven't really heard any new artists besides the ones listed here that really stand out tho. I really enjoy this sound and hope it grows
