Lo-Fi, Glo-Fi, Newgaze, Shitgaze, Chillwave, Slackerwave, Hypnagogic Pop Mix

Whatever you want to call it, you know what it is.

"They’re solo acts or minimal bands, often with a laptop at their core, and they recall electropop from the 1980s, when synthesizers and rhythm machines sounded dinkier and less flexible. Instead of electropop’s dynamic, future-soul vocals, they have indie-rockers’ diffident voices, which are often made even more remote because they’re veiled in reverb. The songs come across like geek daydreams: half-remembered Top 40 songs and dance hits sung by guys too shy to leave their rooms." - New York Times
