Chillwave, glo-fi (via Now Wave), GorillaVsBearcore (via Hipster Runoff) - call it what you like, hazy electronica provides an ideal soundtrack to these lazy sunny days. Washed Out (pictured), Toro Y Moi and Neon Indian are probably the biggest names in the scene, if indeed it is a scene, but I'll leave these questions to HRO and Pitchfork. Memory Tapes and Caribou don't really fit in here; 'Bicycle' and 'Odessa' are both just great melancholy pop songs. You might consider throwing out your Caribou records in a pre-emptive strike, though.
Toro Y Moi, Caribou and Memory Tapes are all playing Field Day next month, along with Atlas Sound and No Age amongst others. I would encourage anyone and everyone to buy a ticket.
Here's to the (deadbeat) summer.
