AOTW | 5 December – 11 December: t e l e p a t h テレパシー能力者 – 未来へ

未来へ is one of the earliest albums from one of the most prolific and community lauded artists within vaporwave and dreampunk: telepath.

LOTW | 21 November – 27 November: Nirvana Port

This week’s album-of-the-week isn’t an album at all. It’s our first “label feature” on Sunbleach: Nirvana Port, a short-lived imprint from the Dream Catalogue label, owned and operated by HKE and telepath. Its nine releases touch drone music, breakbeat, noise, furniture music, and ambient DnB; and sometimes, all within the same album. Nirvana Port is something of a little sister […]

AOTW | 24 October – 30 October: Mason Guerrero – The Chernobyl Tape Decks

The Chernobyl Tape Decks is the only album by Mason Guerrero under his own name. Whereas many early vaporwave pioneers stayed on the fringes of the genre following its brief and exciting first-wave heyday in the early 2010s only to reinvent themselves (e.g. Internet Club) or come back later to nigh-universal excitement (Vektroid), Mason Guerrero’s sole release in the relatively […]

AOTW | 17 October – 23 October: Dante Mars Ajeto! – Life Enterprises

At its best, future funk just plain feels good. It’s happy, it’s fun, and it’s not always light – sometimes, it’s actually pretty hard-hitting. Dante Mars Ajeto’s Life Enterprises is one of such albums. It opens with one of the best tracks in future funk at the time of this writing: “Quick Script Big Bux,” which samples an uptempo funk […]
