Tegan & Sara v. Toro y Moi
Tegan & Sara are Tegan Rain Quin and Sara Kiersten Quin, twin sisters who create a breed of pop music I think you'll like. They have released six studio albums since 1999, Sainthood being their most recent. Toro y Moi, who Jep touched upon in an earlier post, remixes Tegan & Sara's track Alligator, and the result is a pretty damn good tune, laced with synths and beats that make you smile.

And here is a track by the 21-year old California producer, Baths, who reminds me a lot of Toro y Moi, in fact. Both dudes are pushing the lo-fi, chillwave, dream pop vibe (whatever you want to call it), and producing some nice sounding and a bit less predictable electronic music. Hall is off Bath's forthcoming LP, Cerulean.
