Firstworld, the project of South Florida’s Kris Alvarez, unveiled a music video for his latest single today, welcoming us with the lo-fi video into his world of chillwavey electronica and smoggy bedroom pop. Not Obvious is a hazy swirling song that immediately recalls my love for bands like Neon Indian, Washed Out, and even MGMT’s latest album Little Dark Age. It’s quickly apparent (the opposite of ”not obvious”) I’ve just stumbled upon a favorite new chillwave artist. Follow along with our new discovery on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.

Our first encounter with Gordo two months ago left us giddily trembling with excitement from the luxuriant R&B funk and lavish indie dance music that he served up on debut single Brady. The elusive Australian bedroom producer and singer songwriter has since returned with a succulent second single named Sad Hot Girls. You’ll find no sad girl here as I sway in bliss to to the silky opulence found on this lo-fi R&B funk and alt electro number. Its curling guitars and plush splendor are like Ben Khan and Jai Paul blended with groovalicious Toro Y Moi and the wavey, spaciness of Washed Out or Neon Indian.
