AOTW | 16 October – 22 October: 식료품groceries – 슈퍼마켓Yes! We’re Open

Lots of mallsoft albums purport to be the soundtrack to your shopping journey, but only one album actually changes aisles with you. 슈퍼마켓Yes! We’re Open is that album. One of the first releases ever on the now-monolithic Dream Catalogue label, 슈퍼마켓Yes! We’re Open chronicles your experience at the local market, providing some easy instrumental listening for you as you shop […]

AOTW | 9 October – 15 October: Hantasi – ラキア2019

As stated in our album article, ラキア2019 is quite possibly one of the strangest albums to come out of the “first wave” of vaporwave back in 2010-2012. This seventy-minute release consists of a bunch of chopped-and-screwed samples, sure, but they’re all affected in a way that sounds like garbled field recordings and jungle music – and that’s “jungle music” as […]

AOTW | 2 October – 8 October: 仮想夢プラザ – TKX Vault series

We’re starting off the fall with a set of three cool-weather albums brought to you by ambient vaporwave/dreampunk artist telepath.

LOTW | 11 September – 18 September: Asura Revolver

The fifth bi-monthly label-of-the-week feature on Sunbleach is Asura Revolver, which is run by Norwegian artist R0x4ry!

The label chiefly operates through pay-what-you-want digital downloads, but they have also released several albums on cassette […]

AOTW | 28 August – 3 September: ULTRACOMPUTER – SUPERCARTRIDGE

I promise that Sunbleach doesn’t go out of its way to feature albums from TKX Vault – it just so happens that a lot of the releases on that label are either really damn good or historically/aesthetically important to vaporwave and cyberpunk music. SUPERCARTRIDGE is the second album from ULTRACOMPUTER, a pseudonymous project (of whom is anyone’s guess) that incorporates […]

AOTW | 21 August – 27 August: Television Experience – The City Never Ends

The City Never Ends is a far cry from Television Experience’s debut Y. 2089, an essential vapornoise album. Then again – that was back when Television Experience went by the Japanese equivalent テレビ体験, so perhaps switching to English is a metaphorical growth of the beard? The City Never Ends is one of the TKX Vault soundtrack albums, along with METROPOLISからオーディオ […]
