zoal – humans [EP]

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ humans is the debut release by zoal, a Los Angeles artist who produces a unique blend of industrial-electronic music and vaporwave. Similar to The Darkest Futures on Dream Catalogue, zoal’s modus operandi is to make samples as unrecognizably distorted as possible, with nods to the beat-tastic styles of Skinny Puppy and The Prodigy. A short four-track, ten-minute release. […]

TOYOMU – 印象III : なんとなく、パブロ (Imagining “The Life of Pablo”)

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ [Originally posted to the SongSavers music blog on 28 April 2016.] [Editor’s note: although not strictly vaporwave, we feel there are enough parallels to the scene that this album should be discussed.] 印象III : なんとなく、パブロ (Imagining “The Life of Pablo”) is the perfect metaphor for the cultural zeitgeist of 2016. Produced by Japanese producer TOYOMU in response to […]

アドブロック+ – 私はライトゼロを感じている

Recommendation: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ アドブロック+1 puts the “noise” in “vapornoise” – harsh noise, that is. In contrast to vapornoise artists whose amusicality is rooted in the usage of television samples and chopped-and-screwed production while still being listenable, 私はライトゼロを感じている2 is Merzbow software-destruction at its purest form. This album is better viewed as harsh noise influenced by vaporwave: the connection to the vaporwave scene […]

Midnight Television – Midnight Television [EP]

Recommendation: ☀☁☁ Midnight Television is one of the original artist in the subgenre known as “late night lo-fi.” Contrary to (faux-)utopian, ECCOJAMS, futurevisions, and other such scenes, late night lo-fi utilizes a mix of musical and non-musical samples while presenting them in a distinctly apolitical light that contains little of the commentary or self-parody common within the scene. Albums here […]
