Dazed’s puts together Lo-Fi playlist

To honour the growing trend towards lo-fi music, Dazed has put together an excellent little playlist, with many current bands including Trailer Trash Tracys, Grouper, Let’s Wrestle and genre daddy Lou Barlow contributing exclusive material. I’m never too sure why I like lo-fi – it seems akin to skinny jeans, walking to work or La Roux, where coolness doesn’t exactly bring pleasure – but there’s plenty to like here, even if the scratchy, raw sound can get a bit much. The Barlow song is a mellow pleasure, in particular, while Times New Viking’s number ends in an organ sound that reminds of DJ Shadow.

Listen to the Lo-Fi Revisited playlist here.
