Floristic Regions – พืชกระท่อม

Recommendation: ☹ พืชกระท่อม1 is a seven-track EP from Occasionally Tapes by Floristic Regions. 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 […]

ガンツ フェルト – オーシャンビュー

Recommendation: ☹ Is gangster vaporhop a thing? Well, I guess it is now. オーシャンビュー1 by ガンツ フェルト2 is classic-style vaporwave that uses aggressive hip-hop for some source material instead of easy listening or adult contemporary. The majority of tracks are original material by the artist, in addition to a few repetitions of select sampling cuts that were taken from music […]

Apk ♀ ᴎᴇᴛ ☯ Ltd℻ – ༼ཧ༐࿏༽

Recommendation: ☹ The impossibly-pronounceable Apk ♀ ᴎᴇᴛ ☯ Ltd℻ creates noise music on the even-more-impossibly-pronounceable ༼ཧ༐࿏༽.1 This RKM Records album takes the Swamp Circle predilection for frequently challenging and occasionally punishing vaporwave-as-noise to a whole new extreme, being twenty-one minutes of sound collage with the occasional classic-style section. ༼ཧ༐࿏༽ begins with a sample of deathcore chugging before launching into a […]

PZA – CLOUDS

Recommendation: ☹ CLOUDS isn’t the usual for Acid Medical. PZA is known for vaportrap – and a lot of it – whereas Acid Medical is known for drone music and ADD-glitchasms. Therefore, CLOUDS is only somewhat an odd duck among releases such as the hundred-minute-plus killkore and the soporific animal crossing. The same PZA pieces1 are here with little change […]

ЖЫ – RUSKE ANDEGRAUND

Recommendation: ☹ RUSKE ANDEGRAUND was released near the beginning of the hardvapor scene, which utilizes Soviet and Eastern European imagery and noise/distortion with techno. This release is the first of two from ЖЫ,1 both released on a Dream Catalogue imprint called TKX Vault that focuses on experimental, noise, and dreampunk music. It’s a sound collage of various spoken word and […]
