I like that Washed Out record and some of that chill wave stuff. On a bit of a different path yet certainly laid back I'm really digging this right now from a collaboration between Jan Jelinek and Computer Soup:
That track is called Straight Life, but the whole disc is pretty great if you like that sort of thing.
I thought Nobody and I were the only only ones digging that Washed Out record. It's a keeper. I'm not really super big into the chill scene, not even really sure what qualifies but I put this one on a YEC several years ago and I think it's as good today as it was then, Telepopmusik - Breathe:
"Ahh, cartoons! America's only native art form. I don't count jazz 'cuz it sucks"- Bartholomew J. Simpson
When I want to chill, nothing works better for me than Mecury Rev. That's the perfect chill music for me.
Great song, from a great album. Not sure I'd call it chill since it does have some big dynamic buildups, but very cool nonetheless. The live bonus disc version has been up at my song of the day for a long time and is a chillier version ... probably about due to be recycled. Was hoping the new reissue would sound more like that, not so loud, but sounds about the same as the old version judging by the MP3 samples. Maybe they only remastered the vinyl?
But good call. I've always been able to relax into that album too...
Bands, those funny little plans, that never work quite right...
If you liek Moon Safari, have you tried Premiers Symptômes? It was a longish EP/shortish LP (collection of singles really) from the year before Moon Safari. Similar feel but personally I like it a bit better.
