Chillwave

Recommended Posts

Pitchfork can't stop raving about it. New York Times calls it recession music. If you have no idea what im talking about you can check out the wikipedia article, but basically it's a bunch really low budget bands making danceable 80's synthpop beats on their computers, and instead of having a cultural epicenter like rock, blues, or even dubstep (who's popularity came from internet radio, but was at least based in a central geographical location), chillwave is being completely pushed by the new age of internets.

What do you guys think? Good shit? Fucking horrible? Is this the future of all new genres? I'll refrain from posting music videos for now because I don't want you guys that havent heard of chillwave to judge this based on the few songs i've heard.

 

Anywho, discuss.

I blame the real estate bubble, forcing williamsburg brooklyn to become flooded with poor faggots who originally moved to new york because they thought they were creative, but were no competition when put up against the best of the best. so since high rents forced food prices up as well they needed to make a quick buck.

 

BAM synth noise that remotely sounds like music, bc it has a beat or some rhythmic repeat, create a scene bc of close proximity, rinse reuse repeat rinse reuse repeat rinse reuse repeat

i have yet to listen to a 'chillwave' track that i've really enjoyed.

 

some people have told me it's good study/art music but i completely disagree and have a lot of music that i consider to be way better for studying or doing art stuffs.

 

that is all.
