AOTW | 26 September – 2 October: death’s dynamic shroud.wmv – I’ll Try Living Like This

After skipping last week’s AOTW update due to personal vacation, Sunbleach is back with a new featured album – this time, something from death’s dynamic shroud.wmv (a.k.a. dds.wmv).

I’ll Try Living Like This is a […]

Advanced Materials releases “77” by TL James

Louisiana label Advanced Materials announced the eight-track album 77 by TL James at midnight this morning (or last night?). 77 is extraordinarily contorted classic-style vaporwave, utilizing the ECCOJAMS textures to an extraordinary extreme to create an uncanny valley effect.

Darksleep – Identity Ender

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ You’d be forgiven for thinking that Identity Ender was one of the first ECCOJAMS to be recorded. Darksleep’s sophomore release is pure chopped-and-screwed samples of popular hits from the eighties and nineties, such as “Time After Time” by Cyndi Lauper. Track titles generally have some wry comment on the theme of the original sample and Darksleep’s resultant edit: […]
