Golden Ages

Golden Ages is a bedroom producer who creates a mixed breed of psychedelic pop and chillwave. Hailing from Philadelphia, this anonymous music project is influenced by the likes of Panda Bear, Washed Out, Toro Y Moi, Fuck Buttons and Memory Tapes. On the Golden Ages full-length debut, Tradition, he combines pounding beats with chanting, atmospheric vocals and layers of synth loops for a trance-inducing sound.

This is another addition to the short list of really cool things I've heard in 2010. No one seems to know the real identity behind Golden Ages, but I hear he will be appearing at SXSW, so that may change soon enough. Here is a cut from Tradition, which you can purchase on Lala. Hit the myspace for press clips from XLR8R and more. Hit Deerhaus to download the first EP for free.
