1983FILM – ☠肉に大きな白い死亡☹

Recommendation: ☹ ☠肉に大きな白い死亡☹1 is a chaotic classic-style vaporwave album that is constructed from audio rips of Japanese anime.2 It comes from the artist 1983FILM, who released a couple albums in 2015 before fading back into the obscurity that is the sea of pseudo-anonymous vaporwave producers.3 Tracks are composed by one of two methods: small snippets of media that are repeated […]

Parasite – Dreams That Cast the Deep Web

Recommendation: ☹ Dreams That Cast the Deep Web comes from Parasite, an anonymous artist who – according to the RKM Records blurb – submitted this album with no further information. It’s two tracks of vaporgoth music that consist of extraordinarily pitch-/tempo-shifted samples taken from a Japanese promo for the Sega Dreamcast.1 There’s almost nothing in the way of standard musicality […]

DJ SVYATOPOLK – THE HERMIT VERSUS TOWERS OF LABOR

This releases consists of several rather long dark techno jams with firmly tongue-in-cheek titles such as “OBAMA FUCKING PUTIN (OH BABY)” and “STATE FUNDED RAVE PLAY”. […]

Floristic Regions – พืชกระท่อม

Reissued in 2016, Floristic Regions’ debut release is pure mallsoft, taking muzak and smooth jazz to their reverbed extreme with a bit of phasing in an imaginary plant store. If you’ve heard mallsoft before, then you know what to expect here. The album is promoted as having […]

//◭// hd netscape //◭// – Crystal Clear

Recommendation: ☹ First and foremost, Crystal Clear by //◭// hd netscape //◭// has one of the best glitchy artworks in vaporwave this side of V01D23 by PINK AND YELLOW, and it will almost certainly earn itself a spot on the end-of-the-year rundown of album artworks on Sunbleach for 2017. The music itself is pretty standard sampled vaporwave. All four tracks […]
