Pizzabox Society releases “Strength of Materials” by Ak.R

Strength of Materials by Ak.R is out on Pizzabox Society. This ambient-esque album has quite a bit in common with early Oneohtrix Point Never mixed with classic-style and hypnagogic vaporwave (e.g. “永久に続くオーディオテープ”). At fourteen tracks, it’s one of the more varied albums to come out this year that isn’t a split or compilation. It’s available as a pay-what-you-want digital download […]

Recommendation: ✂ (“Intro,” “7:30 p.m. (feat.

Question Records releases “Soar” by Lukepi
