Exit consists of a single twenty-five-minute drone/ambient piece mixed in with field recordings. It has several similarities to the 仮想夢プラザ project by telepath […]

Although it’s only a year younger than the vaporwave catalyst of the New Dreams Ltd. and […]

Shima33 – Release

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Don’t be fooled: under its stark exterior, Release is a love story. Shima33’s second album for Dream Catalogue opens and closes with short spoken word pieces that describe the wonders and the pains of falling for someone – and how love can color experiences as personal and intimate as music. The tracks don’t tell full stories; they’re little […]
