الوهيم – ♦☼♦

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ♦☼♦ is an unlikely addition to the Seikomat/Sud Swap Audio Brewing/Botanica1 family of labels, which generally focus on uptempo and positive-affect vaporwave in classic-style and hypnagogic drift forms. In contrast, this album is entirely vaporgoth. Released in September 2016, ♦☼♦ is an eight-track mini-album that implores the listener to “gather your limbs, shake the earth from your flesh”. […]

Golfmania Program is a six-track EP from WTF.FM available through Swamp Circle, a label run by Angel Marcloid that revels in experimental works of cyberpunk music. Golfmania Program is imagined as the soundtrack and sound effects to a titular golfing computer program, ostensibly created in the mid-late 90s. […]
