Adhesive Sounds releases “Welcome to Villa Zodone ℞” by Viibryd

There’s a very specific strand of vaporwave music called “utopian vaporwave”. It’s more of a general pool of albums than it is an actual aesthetic.

Seikomart releases “The ßlack Lodge” by ΔCID.rar

Seikomart is back with some new stuff from ΔCID.rar. The ßlack Lodge is one of those releases that barely straddles the line between classic-style and ambient vaporwave. This ten-track mini-album features extremely slowed-down and affected samples that create sort of a druggy, underground-clubby atmosphere.
