Virtual Dream Plaza releases “Cubed Blocks” by Light Blending In
One of the cool things about vaporwave, synthwave, and other retro-themed electronic music genres is their ability to elicit very specific memories of things artists might have experienced growing up, whether they be in reference to the early digital age or not. Here’s a good example with Cubed Blocks by Light Blending In, which has an album artwork that features the kind of obfuscating, textured glass cubes that are common on a lot of 80s and 90s bathroom and kitchen architecture, especially in tropical areas. The music is IDM familiar to fans of mid-90s stuff from artists like Autechre (although not nearly as lonely) and glitch music. It’s available for $4.44 USD as a digital download and for $9.99 USD on cassette in an edition of 100.
