Recommendation: ✂ (“恒星間ハイウェイ”)

COSMIC漂流1 is a three track extended-play of old-school hypnagogic pop and samplism vaporwave from TOYOTAセリカ.2 As can be imagined from the presentation, each track has a space/car theme. The first – and shortest – track begins as a standard slowed jam but quickly degrades into a computer-twinkle outro. It’s unexpected, and quite pleasant as a listening experience and as a “huh, I haven’t heard that before.” Unfortunately, the other tracks are simple cut/paste and tempo-shift – most egregiously “彗星を共連れ.” Give that first one a listen and add; ignore the other two.



1. 恒星間ハイウェイ – (1:41)3
2. 彗星を共連れ – (4:18)4
3. グローブボックス内星雲 – (5:01)5
