Lovely, lovely synth-pop

There’s something about glossy synths and hushed vocals that gets me in a way no other kind of music does. Its kind of hard to describe actually, now that I try to. The L.A.-based duo comprised of Jamie Leffler and Robert Cepeda have been releasing songs under the name DWNTWN for about a year now.
Just by scrolling through their website, one can imagine what kind of music they create. Faded photos and instagrams abound, conjuring the same kinds of memories and feelings as artists such as Washed Out and Memory Tapes aim to bring out in people. Also, please watch the video, it’s quite nice.

…and a Lil B version. I don’t know what to think of him, probably never will, but I like Skeet Skeet.
