New York's Small Black, fronted by Josh Kolenik, were one of the bands in the legions of the synth-pop revival of the 2000s. Their (very lo-fi) debut EP Despicable Dogs (Transparent, 2009) included one of the best "chillwave" songs of the era, Despicable Dogs, but New Chain (Jagjaguwar, 2010) had nothing beyond the usual dose of ethereal pop ballads set to vintage synth sounds and drum-machines, and Limits Of Desire (Jagjaguwar, 2013) even delved into contemporary "r&b". Best Blues (Jagjaguwar, 2015), including the single Boys Life and the emotional Back at Bill's , was typical of the albums made by chillwave acts that really had nothing to say beyond the first recording.
