str grl † – killkore

Recommendation: ☹ killkore is one hour and forty-two minutes of drone music. Yes, you heard that right.1 killkore is pretty different from the rest of the Acid Medical discography (thus far) as it is the only pure drone release on the label. Other albums – such as animal crossing by gorepup – utilize drone, but the drone tracks are usually […]

2047 부드러운 아픈 – 새로운 삶을 시작

Recommendation: ☹ In a way, 새로운 삶을 시작1 is kind of a sister album to 2814’s 新しい日の誕生. Both came out in 2015, a year that Sunbleach considers a high-water mark for vaporwave and led to a veritable explosion of music and new forms of music unseen since 2011/2012. Like 新しい日の誕生, this album is an ambient vaporwave/dreampunk release with an urban […]

Vladyk Predovitch – Plays…

Recommendation: ☹ Released toward the end of the TKX Vault cycle, Plays… is a free jazz album by Vladyk Predovitch, one of the aliases of wosX and a “founder” of the Antifur label. While not vaporwave, hardvapor, or ghost tech by any stretch of the imagination, it’s worth featuring simply because of its place within TKX Vault and creation by […]

コンシャスTHOUGHTS – Can’t Get Enough

Recommendation: ☹ Can’t Get Enough doesn’t have “bad” songs, it’s just highly derivative. Minimally-edited French House with vaporwave can only go so far, especially when it’s twenty tracks of the same beats/percussion/etc. コンシャスTHOUGHTS1 falls into the quagmire found by a lot of future funk producers: such heavy focus on dance ends up limiting the music, and there’s only so much […]

stress. – exhaust

Recommendation: ☹ exhaust is a forty-minute album coming from stress.1 It was released as a part of the Telepathic Data Storage project, which also includes releases such as 103.67FM by Spirit #67 and the reality.wav series. This album is pure ambient noise music, completely bypassing the “vapor-” influences of other Telepathic Data Storage albums. It anticipates the future albums by […]

prism tv – cryogenesis

Recommendation: ☹ “prism tv” is a reference to the trope codifier of the broken transmission genre, prism genesis by fuji grid tv. cryogenesis is the only album from the prism tv project, and it’s a part of the overarching Telepathic Data Storage umbrella of releases from 2015-2016.1 As with prism genesis, prism tv’s album is a noisy mix of advertisements, […]
