Aw man, my favorite mixtape!

You may ask yourself, “Where is that large automobile?” No, really – you may ask yourself, “What the fuck is chill wave?” Well some may call it a breakthrough new trend in the world of rock music while I would call it a nifty sub-genre of a sub-genre (Rock>Alt Rock>Indie Rock>Chill Wave). Either way, there are some interesting artists putting out interesting iterations of pop music, like Toro y Moi, Washed Out, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Grafitti, and Neon Indian. While I don’t think this is groundbreaking shit here, it deserves some attention. This is “Terminally Chill” from Neon Indian and I like it because there is good pop song – one that sounds strikingly like Steely Dan (maybe I’m crazy) – underneath muffled waves of synth and production. It almost continues the vibe that indie delivers – I’m too cool to write a straight-up pop song. Whatev.
