Lindsheaven Virtual Plaza – Transversal Worldwide Shopping

Recommendation: ☀☀☁ In 2013, Lindsheaven Virtual Plaza dropped a suite of genre-defining music on Ailanthus Recordings – and by no means is that qualifier casually used. The word “suite” is also used quite literally: Transversal Worldwide Shopping is the third Chapter to the artist’s series of conceptual works based in lo-fi hypnagogic renditions of popular media – to the point […]

death’s dynamic shroud.wmv – DERELICTメガタワー

Recommendation: ☀☀☁ DERELICTメガタワー1 – a.k.a. “The Behemoth” – is a four-hour, 84-track set of vaporwave music from death’s dynamic shroud.wmv (hereafter “dds.wmv”), a semi-collective of artists who collaborate and work solo under the dds.wmv name.

Windows 98の – これは魂のために

Recommendation: ☀☀☁ これは魂のために1 is the second full-length by Orlando, Florida vaportrap artist Windows 98の, released in January 2015 only three weeks after ブルースクリーン (BLUE SCREEN 001). In contrast to the ecstasy of the インターネット EP, これは魂のために shows Windows 98の’s gentler and somewhat more experimental side, including the introduction of the crystal-clear production style that has become his trademark. The album […]
