音 LIGHT システム – Buy Milk

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Buy Milk succeeds where many vaportrap albums fail: it’s charming. It’s not obnoxiously in-your-face like most of bl00dwave’s discography, not poppy/peppy like Blank Banshee, and certainly not aggressively hyped-up like most of 2016’s output thus far. Not that any of that is bad, of course! No, 音 LIGHT システム’s1 seventh full-length release is lively and free – and […]

豊平区民TOYOHIRAKUMIN – MUSIC IN THE AIR

Recommendation: ✂ (“PLAZA,” “MIDNIGHT TALKING,” “NAKANO BOTANICAL GARDENS,” “TOMORROW, TOYOHIRA”) MUSIC IN THE AIR doesn’t know what kind of album it wants to be.

It sounds highly influenced by futuristic video games such as the Wipeout series, and it has a significant beat-oriented vibe. There’s some Latin feeling as well, as heard on “Tangibilidade.” It’s available for […]

断片化された友人 – Fragmented Memories

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Fragmented Memories is six hours long. That’s ridiculous. 断片化された友人1 is marketed as a supergroup of seven high-profile vaporwave artists, but it’s not. Only twenty-one of the sixty-nine tracks are collaborative, and almost none of them feature every member. The tracks are rarely any different from what any artist puts on their solo albums, giving this album the impression […]
