Datalog releases “Kaleidoscope” by Glass Double
Remember the whole concept of “utopian vaporwave”? It was a (debatable) aesthetic that was talked about a bit back in 2012 and 2014 that saw certain albums as stemming from vaporwave musical roots but incorporating concepts and themes based on a positive outlook toward the future. Well dang, wasn’t it nice when we thought of the world that way? Anyway, the (new) label Datalog has a bit of that with the new album Kaleidoscope by Glass Double. Although mostly incorporating new electronic music mixed with public domain recordings (kind of like the Public Service Broadcasting project), the upbeat nature of songs and clear production is pretty similar to how “utopian vaporwave” was once discussed. So try it on, relax with some downtempo grooves and watery piano synths. It’s available as a pay-what-you-want digital download and for $8 USD on compact disc in an edition of twenty.
