Chillwave, Electronic, Fav Tracks, Missed in 2011

Chad Valley

No Comments 12 December 2011

This one could be a missed in 2010, definitely should have been posted here a long time ago.  But like I said things happen.  In addition to being a part of indie rock outfit , Oxford based musician Hugo Manuel also records under the name Chad Valley.  Manuel released the EP Equatorial Ultravox earlier this year to great reviews.  The second effort of the bedroom production project is both subdued and huge at once.  It would be easy to label it chillwave and move on, but where many artists of the genre rely on haze for their sound Manuel uses it to merely loft his hook-driven tracks higher and higher.  Listen to standouts from Equatorial Ultravox “Now That I’m Real (How Does It Feel)” and “Fast Challenges” and his recent remix of .

Two of our favorite artists come together in this track.  Lo-fi hip-hop producer remixes the cumulus ’s “Amor Fati” creating something exactly between.  Enjoy this one, I am.

Washed Out – “Call It Off”

New ?  Yes please.  Ernest Green will be releasing the 12″ single “Amor Fati” on November 7th b/w the awesome B-side “Call It Off”.  The track is bit more pensive than its counterpart but lacks none of Green’s characteristic dazed out feel.  Listen below.

You’ve already heard “Eyes Be Closed” and “Echoes” from the new album, so now take a listen to “Amor Fati”.  Mr. Green must be loving his fate as his album is becoming one of the most awaited albums of the year (at least for us).  Check it out below.

Millionyoung

No Comments 10 February 2011

is the guy I pass in the hall everyday that I never knew could be my new best friend.  For the past year I have encountered the music of Mike Diaz, AKA , in the metaphorical hallways of the internet never quite giving him the time of day.  At a friend’s recent suggestion I decided to give a full fledged listen.  Only a few tracks deep into his upcoming full length debut I realized Diaz and I were indeed long lost musical friends.

Millionyoung’s brand of chillwave draws immediate comparisons to other favorites of the genre–, , , –but his unique infusion of retro stylings helps set him apart (see “Calrissian”).  Title track “Replicants”, finds Diaz taking a more routine approach (for the genre) without coming across stale or trite.  Listen to both below.

Replicants will be released digitally February 11th and on CD and LP February 15th via Old Flame, head HERE to pre-order.  The whole album can currently be streamed off the Millionyoung website HERE.
