Nite Jewel - "Artificial Intelligence"
"Chillwave is some of the worst, most non-committal music ever made. Just the hackiest pile up of 'lol-geddit' Nickelodeon references, tape hiss hiding a total lack of hooks, and a sub-Family Guy level of nostalgia masquerading as emotion. However, I do like Nite Jewel who sort of lives on the fringes of this stuff. She has a beautiful, spectral voice and she doesn't have to mask it with an ocean of fake-VHS noise."
