Hello everyone, I am returning from my sabbatical of work, work, and more work to share with you a song that has been in my head for an entire week. This song comes to you from the band Neon Indian, out of Denton, Texas. These guys almost epitomize the genre of “Chillwave” To quote Wikipedia directly, “Chillwave, sometimes also referred to as Glo-Fi, is a genre of music where artists are often characterized by their heavy use of effects processing, synthesizers, looping, sampling, and heavily filtered vocals with simple melodic lines.” You’ll get it when you listen to the track. These guys are similar to one of my other favorite bands, Crystal Castles. As my brother describes this genre of music as “glorified 8-bit” it tends to sound like you are listening to some good electronic music while your little brother plays his NES at full volume in the next room. Give this one a listen, it’s pretty catchy and has been ringing through my head for the last week.
