so far my private investigator thinks that someone in PLEBA is the first one to hear Washed Out, but they didn't pay attention because they were drooling over a picture of Larry's towel caught by another fan on Facebook.

Sub Pop is saying this isn't even going to ship until its release date, which is absolute duckbutter. I never had a DP label behave like this.

Back when I used to buy what seemed like 60%+ of everything Sub Pop released, it was a pretty normal thing to receive albums from them a few days before they released if you bought directly from the label's store. No clue if that's still the case or not.

It actually now says that it has already shipped, so the Emerald City will not have its cattle rustled after all.

These reviews so far have been something approaching ludicrous. Why not just review the album instead of trying to posit "chillwave" as some kind of objective, anachronistic entity that is barely clinging to life? This one is particularly awful:

The first paragraph is disturbingly reminiscent of a classic Onion article:
Pitchfork Gives Music 6.8 | The Onion - America's Finest News Source

Also, the single most pretentious sentence ever written:

But I think they dislike Washed Out, so fuck em.

I read about four lines and then stopped when it got to Freud. Reviews like that make me angry. There are plenty of wankers in the world, but then there are people who write shit like that.

I couldn't give two fucking shits if chillwave "died". The album's good. End of fucking story

People definitely spend way too much time obsessing over subgenres and the like.

This is the best review I've read of this album so far.

So should I even bother with this? You know, since it's from a dead subgenre and all.

The bonus track version is on iTunes for $7.99. I may just go with that.

there's a bonus track? sweet!

yeah,the whole genre thing is rediculous. i feel like we all just need to go back to:

Rock
Country
Rap
Pop
Spoken Word

and that's it.
