AOTW | 4 December – 10 December: ᴡ ᴇ в s ɪ ᴛ ᴇ ツ / ライフMIDI – E-motional Cartography
In recognition of the new ᴡ ᴇ в s ɪ ᴛ ᴇ ツ album available through Power Lunch, this week’s album-of-the-week features E-motional Cartography, a split between ᴡ ᴇ в s ɪ ᴛ ᴇ ツ and ライフMIDI that was released through Swamp Circle in March 2016. Both projects contribute two long-form classic-style vaporwave tracks with evolving progressions and a bit of a sample curation feeling as each bit is stitched together. The ライフMIDI section has some influence from ECCOJAMS, which may be heard in the repetitive vocal samples that hold a narcotic, dreamy vibe that is amplified by the length of the track. The ᴡ ᴇ в s ɪ ᴛ ᴇ ツ side has more of a musique concrete atmosphere not unlike the planned-corruption found on Online Records releases. Check this out if you’re a fan of Transversal Worldwide Shopping by Lindsheaven Virtual Plaza but want to get a little more crazy.
