It's fascinating to see how chillwave's three prongs -- Toro Y Moi, Neon Indian, Washed Out -- all took different paths. Toro developed the funky side, making good on breezy analog synths. Neon Indian went new wave. And Washed Out deconstructed the easy-listening, ambient effects, though on Ernest Greene's second full-length, these gauzy tunes reach such a universal pitch that they occasionally resemble Coldplay. The blissful "All I Know" brings the bedroom to the dancefloor, while the skittering, poppy "Falling Back" harks back to Air's seminal Moon Safari, where this stuff really began.
