this evening i was djing a party where they wanted '90s classics' and it was both disconcerting and unremarkable to see ppl barely out of their teens dancing along to mid-90s house classix; there was little to no divide btw the people who might be old enough to remember the songs i was playing fondly & the people for whom these songs should have little personal/historical meaning... isnt one of the consequences of technology to help divorce cultural artifacts from history?

That's it right there. Good music is good music. Young people aren't supposed to be able to recognize and enjoy good music? The whole cult of the new, and the obsession with timeliness is imo, a strange type of insanity promoted by journalists who are taught to think only about the news.

cough cool suffer from putting out too much stuff - their best tracks are really good, but they've released quite a bit of junk too. tbf most of the junk was free.

last year's Eleventeen Eston album is really nice

treeship, i don't know, i didn't get a chillwave vibe from that gypsy and the cat tune, apart from the treatment of the vocals maaaaybe, just seemed to have that same peter hook new order sound that is like the main fucking hallmark of most generic indie pop/rock imo

i always thought g&tc were on some anodyne washed-out new order/fleetwood mac thing but i've only ever heard them in the dentists office

don't ask me why i posted this (electricsound), Friday, 9 January 2015 21:40 (two years ago) Permalink

yeah, i think "anodyne washed-out new order/fleetwood mac" is a good description for most mass market chillwave. there were a few great chillwave acts but there was also a flood of generic "chill" acts -- both synth and guitar-oriented -- and i think those are also part of the movement. i heard this g&tc song for the first time at shake shack.

ha i didn't realize that the beach boys' "all i wanna do" is considered proto-chillwave.

Woah that is uncanny!

Always thought this was proto-chillwave too. "Magic" by Mick Smiley, from the original Ghostbusters movie.

that beach boys thing really is kinda amazing. i haven't listened to that album for years.

scott seward, Saturday, 4 April 2015 15:46 (two years ago) Permalink

it sounds like a new cass mccombs single! i mean even that hazy production is so perfect.

scott seward, Saturday, 4 April 2015 16:03 (two years ago) Permalink

I've often thought of Feel Flows as also being Proto-Chillwave, but it might be closer to Proto-Hypangogic Pop.

Meanwhile, on Wikipedia...
