Mason Guerrero – The Chernobyl Tape Decks

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Mason Guerrero’s The Chernobyl Tapes – apart from having one of the coolest album titles in vaporwave history – is one of the earliest examples of the vapornoise subgenre. Released in December 2011, just a few months after the artist’s eighteenth birthday, The Chernobyl Tapes is a four-track extended-play of ECCOJAMS taken to an ominous extreme. Rather than […]

Swamp Circle releases “SPRING WIND ~​!​!​!​BLESSED 17 36 3 (SW​-​090)” by NYKDLN

Summer is too happy. Fuck summer. Get weird and gloomy instead. SPRING WIND ~​!​!​!​BLESSED 17 36 3 (SW​-​090) can help with that. This is crazy lo-fi, heavily degraded vaporwave that sounds akin to the latter quarter of William Basinski Disintegration Loop set. This drone album is split into eleven tracks, but it mixed as one single song. It’s available as […]

Abject Records releases “Here and I” by B a DB u d d h a 釈迦

Abject Records’ follow-up to the dark ambient of 4rchtypes is the micro-form of B a DB u d d h a 釈迦, displayed through Here and I. This album is best described as Infinity Frequencies-meets-vaporgoth; tracks are repetitive microsamples with extreme filter, processing, and delay to sound like vaguely ominous ambient music. Basically, nothing like that album art. It’s available […]

Elemental 95 releases “Premiere Ecconomy Inc. 合并” by ごめい p r e m i u m ␛

Well, there’s an alt-code that I haven’t seen before. This is Premiere Ecconomy Inc. 合并 by ごめい p r e m i u m ␛, out on French-American label Elemental 95. The album is classic-style vaporwave in the vein of 2010/2011 stuff: droney vibes, unsettling ECCOJAMS effects, and extreme lo-fi filters. It’s available as a pay-what-you-want digital download. Check it […]

骨架的 – Holograms.zip

Recommendation: ✂ (“Ancient,” “Wires”) Holograms.zip (also known as Holograms Beta Version) is a kinda-sorta unofficial version of 骨架的’s landmark proto-vaporwave release Holograms that’s been floating around the Internet and various share folders for some time. The main differences are the order of tracks and a few songs: “Computer” is not on the album,1 and there are two excised tracks via […]
