幽霊, TOGETHER! – Into Your Eyes

Recommendation: ✂ (“I want to 知っています” and “tell it to my heart”) Into Your Eyes is an old-school ECCOJAMS extended-play by “post-death” producer 幽霊, TOGETHER!1 of DMT Tapes FL.2 The album’s seven tracks are classic-style vaporwave with an old AM-radio sheen comparable to releases found on the Fortune 500 label.3 Each song has a general late night feel, with heavy […]

Here’s something new from the classic-style vaporwave label Elemental 95: エコージャムDATING SIMULATOR by Squarecom広場SOFTWARE. This album is a mix between early hypnagogic drift and ECCOJAMS, edging toward “classic” classic-style but with a bit more of an ambient twist that isn’t normally heard in contemporary releases. エコージャムDATING SIMULATOR utilizes similar tropes as its titular ECCOJAMS progenitor – there’s even the ECCO […]
