Top Chillwave Songs - Week 28 2013
I got 99 problems, one of those being Magna Carta Holy Grail, but they can wait until Monday, as it is time for the weekend, bros! That is right, as yet another long and arduous week draws to its conclusion, BitCandy has got your back, with the top chillwave songs, from Majical Cloudz, Blondes, Duane Pitre and more. Big thanks, as always, to our Curators who helped us out with this week's picks. If you would like to be a Curator, and help us with our weekly round ups, then click here, or why not let me know what I should feature next Friday in the comments, below?
Majical Cloudz “Silver Rings”
If you loved “Bugs Don't Buzz” in Week 26, then you are in luck. Check out this cut from Majical Cloudz, entitled “Silver Rings.” Look, if I am not able to convince you to buy Impersonator, then how about Grimes? If Grimes is not able to convince you to buy Impersonator, then uh, fuck you...
Letherette “After Dawn”
Introducing Letherette, who attended the very same college as Actress and Alex Nut, apparently, so they are in extraordinarily good company. “After Dawn,” which was inspired by the bicycle chase in Spielberg's ET, is lifted from the British duo's debut album, Letherette, available on Ninja Tunes.
Charles Murdoch “Dekire (Feat. Oscar Key Sung)” (Curator Duffster)
“Dekire” is the first single to be taken from Charles Murdoch's EP, Weathered Straight, the release date for which is inching ever closer, according to Future Classic. It features the rich, creamy vocals of Oscar Key Sung, and recently came accompanied by this video direct from PHANTOM studios.

Duane Pitre “Feel Free”
Last year, Duane Pitre uploaded a “collage edit” of the 38 minute composition, “Feel Free,” which he unveiled in its full glory on Important Records. Pirte describes “Feel Free” as “a musical lattice, rich with layers and interweaving rhythmic patterns that superimpose themselves upon each other.”
EMERSE “Clouds” (Curator Duffster)
EMERSE is an upcoming producer, born in Australia, and based in Germany, who is emitting those early Clams Casino vibes. “Clouds” is probably the best avenue into the music, awaiting you over at his Soundcloud page, where you can find numerous originals, and a remix of “Sleepless” by Flume.
Thanks to the ever awesome Mr Suicide Sheep, for letting us know about the Welsh duo, Nanobyte, who a lot people are comparing to Burial, or is it Four Tet? Anyways, I love this comment from SelGdemparamtwilight: “Whenï»¿ everyone listens to this kind of music, the world will be at peace...”
Parra For Cuva and Anna Naklab “Wicked Games”
The German producer, Parra For Cuva, has once again teamed up with the vocal powerhouse, Anna Naklab, in order to transform Chris Isaak's Lynchian romantic nightmare, “Wicked Games,” into a deephouse wonderland, taken from the EP, Something Near, which is out now on WellDone! Music.
Uppermost “Love” (Curator Yang Francis)
Last month, the French producer, Uppermost, released his fifth album, Revolution. I have fallen head over heels for “Love” which is, by far, my favorite cut on the new album. No really, I ugly cry the moment the violins hit at 3 minutes. Pass me a damn Kleenex, so I can move swiftly along...
Tantsui “Beautiful Day”
“Beautiful Day” is taken from the Russian duo, Tantsui's first ever vinyl EP on What's In The Box Records, which also includes this Days Of Funk remix. YouTube, it is all kinds of depressing that nearly all the comments beneath this video are about the girl's cleavage, rather than the song itself.
Last month, the Brooklyn duo, Blondes, surprised us by announcing the release of their sophomore album, Swisher, by means of a stream. Swisher, which physically hit the stores in August, features artwork by Greg Zifcak, who also directs this video for the gorge, eight minute lead single, “Elise.”
That is it for another week, but feel free to let me know what I should feature next Friday in the comments, below! Until then, keep on “ridin the chillwave,” bros!
