    As I already wrote in january lofi guitars seem to become very popular this year. Best Coast is on number one of NME's 50 Best New Bands of 2010 ranking.
    Very strong influences come from periodically reviving shoegaze and from last year's strongly hyped chillwave sound. Together they create nice 60's sounds that instantly paint images from sun-covered beaches into your head. Not surprisingly, many of these bands come from San Francisco or LA.
    Here are some of my favourites

    For maybe two years now new american indie bands from new york, san francisco and los angeles are playing lofi and surf music. i highly appreciate these pieces of nostalgic guitar sounds, reverbing voices and sometimes hippie-esque mood. even their videos look like shot in the 60s.
