(Vice)   Where have all the hipsters gone? Their 2008-12 musical heyday evoked "chillwave and the vibe generation; of Carpark Records re-releasing an old Toro Y Moi demo album that sounds like Weezer if Weezer took the L Train to Bedford Ave, just because"   ( noisey.vice.com) divider line

I still haven't heard the music that came out 10 years before the stuff this dude is nostalgic for.

Pop music is so vapid. Always has been.

I can't say I share this millenial's "nostalgia"

I am a bit out of touch... is chillwave categorically bad somehow?  I've found it warmly nostalgic in small doses.  Decent to fall asleep to as well, though not as much as dark ambient.

None of those words mean anything to me, Subby.

Last summer's Toro Y Moi release was rad.  You're all old. I'm old too, but you're worse. Pink Floyd stopped being a thing 40 years ago.

Hey ya'll, I was wondering if this is the thread where I can find out how to calibrate my hi-fi system to get the best performance for my Grand Funk Railroad and Steely Dan reel-to-reels.

Anyone?

::crickets chirping::

Alrighty then, I'll just fark right off to somewhere else.

God, what a meandering wank of an article.

Chillwave is the perfect soundtrack to the vaguely melancholic realization that adulthood ain't all it's cracked up to be, and the resulting feelings of nostalgia for simpler times. It didn't last because most millennials have, at this point, learned how to adult and have moved on with their lives (the youngest millennials are now in their mid 20s).

yeah, so this kid is 12 years younger than me, and pining for his 16-21 years. i have those, too. namely big beat, new metal, and scrunge.

see: fatboy slim, lo fidelity allstars, korn, puddle of mudd, sponge and live

basically, everyone has this but author of article hasn't figured it out or just wants to share his like its a new take

So subby, how was the stroke?  It must have been real good judging by that word salad of a headline.
