It Takes a Wave of Chillions to Hold a Stack

It Takes a Wave of Chillions to Hold a Stack

_

The joke is that nobody’s raking in the krill with this stuff. Made in late 2009 to collect a few strands of what was coalescing as chillwave. There wasn’t enough good material to fill a full mix, so it detours through some retro Italo disco and post-Xiu Xiu fallout, and is bookended by helium-voxed indie rock. In ten years, I doubt I’ll have any access to how strongly I felt about “Shelter,” which eclipses all of the above. All the more reason to include it in this time capsule.
