Multimedia, AV Every so often we publish here at OSNews articles about copyright, about the war of the "old media" establishment against everyone else. Many, myself included, have argued that the way to get out of this mess -- short of changing the law -- is to have more artists release their work under a Creative Commons license. However, after a few years it became obvious to me that CC would never be able to change the industry all by itself. Offering a Free license, and having 30,000 albums released under it, was still not enough. Until the Summer of 2009, that is. Update: Added audio samples.

Absolutely not. Only *some* of Royksopp's songs on that album come a bit close, but still no cigar (their sound is too clear, it's not like a fade memory, but clean-cut electronic sounds). The rest of the albums you mentioned have absolutely nothing to do with chillwave.

The stylistic origins of chillwave is Panda Bear, some of Animal Collective, a bit of early Beach House too.

>I listen to this kind of stuff a lot and I can tell >you now that it's neither new nor "underground".

It is very new, and it's still underground. You confuse chillwave with chillout electronic music. It's not the same. Chillout music is simply ambient music, sometimes with a bit more dance-infused electronic music, while chillwave is synthpop/new-wave/shoegaze that specifically tries to awake memories, rather than just make you chill. The fact that it's using the electronic music's tools to realize itself is besides the point. That's where the similarity ends.

Check the artists mentioned in the chillwave wikipedia article to check out the genre.
