Evaporated Sounds releases “Stride” by Virtual Polygon

Stride is a classic-style/signalwave vaporwave release out from Virtual Polygon on Evaporated Sounds. 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. Most songs are less than a minute in length with short loops repeated through the track, although Stride is different from most signalwave […]

不朽空間 – 深夜、テレビに照らさ暗い部屋。

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ At the risk of gross oversimplification, Cyber Dream Records may be described as inhabiting an alternate universe in which Dream Catalogue never dropped the “-wave” suffix in vaporwave and completely bypassed the trends of hardvapor and IDM-dreampunk in continued pursuit of the label’s early interest in hypnagogic drift, broken transmission, and ambient vaporwave. Many of Cyber Dreams’ albums […]

Broken Light – Endless Desert

Rating: ☀☁☁ If you’ve listened to the SUPERCOMPUTER trilogy on TKX Vault and the Computer trilogy by Infinity Frequencies, then Endless Desert by Broken Light is an excellent place to go next. Endless Desert is a nineteen-track signalwave album that plays like an Internet version of Brian Eno’s Ambient 4: On Land. It’s a vaguely conceptual album of what appears […]

Infinity Frequencies – Computer Afterlife

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ If vaporwave is often interpreted as a nostalgia trip, then Infinity Frequencies is a nostalgia trap. Computer Afterlife is the third album in a trilogy that also spans Computer Death and Computer Decay. All three albums utilize samples from old commercial tapes and Weather Channel broadcasts that have been cut and repurposed to portray a pensive and occasionally […]

ULTRACOMPUTER – INFINITE 新しい生命システムの音

Recommendation: ☀☀☁ The first of the ULTRACOMPUTER albums is only the seventh album on the TKX Vault/Tokyo Exchange label of avant-garde electronic and vaporwave music, and it’s one of the best. INFINITE 新しい生命システムの音1 utilizes repeated fragments of sound to elicit a glitched state of mind. It’s a concept that’s been done many a time – it even has its own […]

Vision Girl – デッドデッドデッドデッド

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ デッドデッドデッドデッド1 is a nine-track extended-play and the second release from the broken transmission project Vision Girl. In contrast to the chaotic Y.2089-esque film score sampling of Film Noir and the classical music screw of Amare sanguinem, this album is entirely ambient music , signalwave piano samples, and tape-degrade overlays. It’s the most reserved album of the Vision Girl […]

INTERNET CLUB – PURE TRANCE

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Released in November 2012, PURE TRANCE is one of the final albums released by Robin Burnett as Internet Club – excluding reissues and remixes. In contrast to the epicness of albums such as REDEFINING THE WORKPLACE and Vanishing Vision, PURE TRANCE is a short vignette: fifteen tracks, twenty-one minutes of glitchy, microsample signalwave. There are no ten-minute new […]
