Evaporated Sounds releases “目を覚まし” by 暗い欲望

目を覚まし by 暗い欲望 is pretty different for the Evaporated Sounds label. Whereas most of their previous albums focused on classic-style vaporwave and mallsoft akin to Elemental 95 and VCR, 目を覚まし is totally different, being four (two long-form) ambient vaporwave tracks that incorporate elements of broken transmission, field recordings, futurevisions, and hypnagogic drift. The first track (simply “Untitled”, as with the […]

Evaporated Sounds releases “Desires” by XENONキセノン Facilities

Here’s new classic-style vaporwave from XENONキセノン Facilities, brought to you by Evaporated Sounds. This album is two half-hour long tracks. The first is mallsoft playing to an empty atrium from dusty PA speakers. If you’ve been around telepath’s Virtual Dream Plaza, then you can imagine it as what would happen if the project were less “Dream” and more “Plaza”, taking […]

This album is a classic-style vaporwave release that heavily utilizes samples from adult contemporary and smooth jazz music.

Evaporated Sounds releases “私の愛 / 幼年時代” by Samasukuru / 人類

Our second split album of the day is 私の愛 / 幼年時代, a work between Samasukuru and 人類 on the Canadian label Evaporated Sounds. Samasukuru’s half is future funk similar to Yung Bae and マクロスMACROSS 82-99 with its uptempo sound and utilization of occasional vocal leads and anime samples. The 人類 tracks are much more chill, evoking the modern jazz influences […]

This album is a twenty-five track album of classical music, adult contemporary, muzak samples, and the occasional Japanese voice with a signalwave production style.

Evaporated Sounds releases “A Light Shining in Darkness” by MT Liquidus

Kudos to Evaporated Sounds for having such a diverse roster! Yesterday’s release by 未来: Ergo was mallsoft/classic-style vaporwave, but A Light Shining in Darkness by MT Liquidus is a complete ‘nother spectrum of ghost tech and dreampunk sounds. This release is ten tracks of spacy, slightly-IDM music that uses a preponderance of twinkling synth sounds and multilayered, polyrhythmic percussion; although […]

Evaporated Sounds releases “Farewell: Second Floor” by 未来: Ergo

Is “Evaporated Sounds” a purposeful play on the word “vapor”? I just noticed that. Anyway, Farewell: Second Floor is the follow-up to 未来: Ergo’s Farewell, released earlier this fall. Farewell: Second Floor is a mix between hypnagogic drift and mallsoft, taking place within an imaginary (and what I assume to be abandoned) air terminal. As with Farewell, it’s sterile, but […]
