Is Chillwave the Sound of Summer 2010?

It may be hard for us S.F. residents to tell, but summer is here, and that means it's time to bust out our brightest, shiniest, dreamiest, and, uh, summeriest music to help make these months (more like weeks in our case) that much more memorable. Of course, deciding on the proper warm weather tunes is a completely subjective decision; some may be reaching into the fresh sounds from the burgeoning 'tribal guarachero' sound, while others are still stuck on San Francisco's biggest musical export as of late, garage rock. The former could be a bit too Dolores Park hippy rave for folks looking to chill out, and the latter might sound old hat next to the constant waves of new genres available. What to do?
