AOTW | 9 October – 15 October: Hantasi – ラキア2019

As stated in our album article, ラキア2019 is quite possibly one of the strangest albums to come out of the “first wave” of vaporwave back in 2010-2012.

Power Lunch releases “CHUM” by CHUM

The eponymous album by CHUM is a strange mix of vapornoise and classic-style vaporwave music, released through the San Diego, California label Power Lunch. Its nine tracks cycle through heavily affected classic-style vaporwave with a ton of additional degradation added to the mix, almost in a way similar to Mason Guerrero but without the ECCOJAMS influence. Choice tracks are “Panel […]
