Sandtimer – God

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Quick – what’s the first thing you hear on opening track “God Is Coming”? It’s the same progression as that used by the first lyric in “Paranoid Android” by Radiohead! God was released late in the first run of TKX Vault by Sandtimer, a multi-genre electronic music project that has touched ghost tech, hardvapour, vaporwave, and dreampunk from […]

Late Night Loops – Late Night Loops II

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Don’t be fooled by the title. Despite this being called Late Night Loops II, I can’t find any other releases by the semi-eponymous artist Late Night Loops. It’s entirely possible that it’s out there, somewhere in the nameless archives of vaporwave MEGA discographies and forgotten Bandcamp labels – but knowing vaporwave, it’s also possible that Late Night Loops […]

懐かし2002津波 – 涅槃への真のパス

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ 涅槃への真のパス1 is an exceedingly long album. Like, 2.1 hours long. In about only eight tracks. While not quite DERELICTメガタワー-level, it’s still one of the longest releases in vaporwave, especially out of those released on a prominent label: in this case, DMT Tapes FL.2 The album comes from 懐かし2002津波,3 who currently produces music simply as Tsunxmi. This album was […]

ANXIETY ONLINE – FEAR

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ ANXIETY ONLINE is a wonderfully evocative name, and FEAR is a wonderfully evocative album title in all its simplicity. This is the third release ever for HVRF, one of two main forces in the hardvapour underground (the other being Antifur); the label purports to be from Prip’yat, Ukraine, which is the location of the Chernobyl disaster. FEAR is […]

Lukepi – Soar

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Soar was a watershed moment for artist Lukepi and label Question Records. For the former, this six-track EP represented an evolution from early IDM and hip-hop sounds to a more eclectic style that also incorporates electro, wonky, and even dreampunk music. For the latter, Soar opened up the possibility of releasing music other than vaporwave, which was previously […]

khoven – ファーリー・ファンダム

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ ファーリー・ファンダム1 is the fourth album released on Velvet Bazaar, which has been home to artists such as 2047, .mp3neptune, reef frequent, and MindSpring Memories – an impressive roster for a label that’s only had ten releases! This is a twenty-six minute mini-album2 of ambient vaporwave music from the artist khoven. Each track is a little less uptempo than […]
