AOTW | 22 October – 28 October: GAMESHARK™ – SHARK 2 パラサイトシングル

(More like “album of the month” by this point, right?) Following catch-up days with new music, we’re now starting our next set of AOTW features with SHARK 2 パラサイトシングル by GAMESHARK™. Don’t let the meme-esque album title (and artwork) fool you; GAMESHARK™ isn’t an artist who simply makes some cheesy one-tone release; SHARK 2 パラサイトシングル is a full-length with some […]

Pursuing Paradise – Lust and the Downward Spiral

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Lust and the Downward Spiral by pseudonymous artist Pursuing Paradise catalogues the turbulence and dissolution of a relationship through vaporwave music.

The majority of the work utilizes a texture similar to the NUWRLD series of death’s dynamic shroud.wmv, whereby the artists used analogue equipment instead of digital […]

GRΔP☰ T☰QUILΔ – BATTLE_FRONTIER

Recommendation: ☹ GRΔP☰ T☰QUILΔ1 joins the ranks of artists such as STΛQQ ƟVERFLƟ who make use of (questionably accurate) Greek letters in their monikers. This album is titled BATTLE_FRONTIER, and it was the first ever release on California label Midnight Moon Tapes, which would one day be home to a diverse roster that includes Reef Frequent, Tech Noir, Chinese Hackers, […]

Midnight Moon Tapes reissues two Diskette Romances albums

Midnight Moon Tapes continues its round of reissues with two releases from Diskette Romances, who pseudo-anonymously released a full-length and an EP before fading back into the digital obscurity that characterizes early vaporwave (or simply moving onto a new alias). These two albums features hazy, repeated samples of nameless new age and muzak from the 80s and 90s with additional […]
