Contact Lens – Ice in tha Veins

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I almost didn’t take this one seriously based on the album artwork alone. That’s – wow. That’s some serious WordArt shit right there. I’m legitimately impressed; it’s got that amateur quality down pat, and it reminds me of spending so much time back in elementary school trying out different themes for papers.1 This is reflected in the music: […]

Surfing self-releases “Chrome”

TASPO – SIMULATION // SIM.BETA

Recommendation: ☀☀☁ SIMULATION // SIM.BETA is a compilation album by TASPO. The first twelve tracks are taken from the SIMULATION full-length and the rest are from the soundtrack to the SIM.BETA mobile app – which, in and of itself, is a pretty cool deal. This album is downtempo vaportrap, utilizing a variety of pure ambient sounds juxtaposed against the characteristic […]

Visaプリペイド – スムーズOCEANS

Recommendation: ✂ (“Intro,” “7:30 p.m. (feat. Drip-133),” “Shopping Centre”) スムーズOCEANS1 should be recognized by its complete avoidance of the annoying hi-hat abuse that’s everywhere in hip-hop/trap-influenced vaporwave. Seriously. This album – the first from Visaプリペイド2 – is one of the better downtempo albums out there in the scene, and one that’s been unfairly overlooked since its 2013 release. There’s an […]
