NETWORK NEIGHBORHOOD – DEL WINDOW~1 /F

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ File this one under “appealing album artworks”. DEL WINDOW~1 /F is the third and final album by NETWORK NEIGHBORHOOD, released as an EP in March 2013. DEL WINDOW~1 /F is pure vapornoise, adding a layer of distortion and harshness to the samplism techniques of classic-style vaporwave. Each of its six tracks flows into its successors, making the EP […]

CVLTVRΣ – Virtual Life

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Virtual Life is classic-style vaporwave from… wait, 2014? Damn, I could’ve sworn this has been around since 2011 or 2012. Sure looks and sounds that way. Huh. Nice. Anyway, CVLTVRΣ’s debut album originally came out to relatively little attention, but it quickly grew in popularity on message boards and eventually found itself featured on the first Vaporwave ULTRA […]

香港黑手黨 – 上升

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Do your ears hurt? Good. 上升1 is the debut EP by the anonymous artist 香港黑手黨.2 This HVRF release is a mixture of power electronics, hardvapor, and jungle music in a distorted mess of six tracks. The confluence of hardvapor and noise (hardvapornoise?) almost entirely lapses into the “noise” part of the equation, which is only saved by the […]

Squarecom広場SOFTWARE – バーチャルSHOPPING CENTRE

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ “I have some new hits I can’t wait to share with you.” Aww. Regardless of the music, that’s pretty cute. バーチャルSHOPPING CENTRE1 is the third album by Squarecom広場SOFTWARE,2 a classic-style vaporwave artist whose works evoke adventures within the neverchanging Virtual Plaza(TM). This release is significantly influenced by mallsoft, with many tracks featuring the ever-so-slight glitch and fuzzy production […]

James Ferraro – Sushi

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Trying to figure out why James Ferraro called it Sushi is to search for meaning that is not there. It’s the title of the album, and that suffices. Digging any deeper is like asking what sounds yellow makes. Sushi is the follow-up to the germinal vaporwave album Far Side Virtual, which also ended up being one of the […]

KEITOBOT – HAPPY

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ HAPPY is a three-track EP on Vault XYO, the third of Dream Catalogue’s Vault series of imprints. It was created by KEITOBOT, an engimatic character hinted at being related to Keito Shimuguchi, who released two drone and vapornoise works on TKX Vault.1 HAPPY is a strange semi-noise work that contains elements of hardvapor and ghost tech music. Leading […]

SLЏMS – WALLED CITY

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ WALLED CITY by SLЏMS is the hardvapor release of Acid Medical, a recognition it shares with Jin’s self-titled album. Sporting the only Acid Medical release by someone outside of the BLCR Laboratories roster, SLЏMS1 utilizes the dark techno music of hardvapor in ways similar to Antifur and wosX. WALLED CITY features plenty of ultra-compressed percussion, cavernous dark ambient, […]
