Ambient Soundscapes from Japan + other releases
Welcome to the daily news for Future Funk, Vaporwave and sub-genres. Today we look at some ambient, vapor, new sounds, cassettes and more. Do you have a favorite release for today? Let me know on twitter!
Today we have 2 cassettes; one ambient soundscape and a shoegaze (why? why not lol). Read more below!
The World Of Revolutionary Girl by Kakumei Shojo (Limited Edition Cassette (version))
The track, Nostalgia, sounds so cool with headphones. The pulsing feel really sweet. If you’re looking for an escape from your normal actives and want to experience some ambient soundscape from Japan, you’re in for a treat. Oh, and if you enjoy it go grab it on cassette.
Initiate – Very Best of Boys Age Vol.2 (Bonus Edition) by Boys Age (Initiate – Limited Ed. Clear CS)
“Hailing from Saitama Japan, Boys Age’s massive 18-track “Best of” compilation titled “Initiate” is out NOW featured on a limited edition cassette.”
I’ve actualy never heard of Boys Age before but this is a sweet release to get familair with the artist. From what I’ve heard so far it’s pretty shoegaze but the album art reminded me of vaporwave. So wanted to share it for vapor art. Sort of getting a Mac DeMarco feel, which I think some of you guys like.
I’ve never really heard of a vapor album that sounded like this before. It’s experimental the vocals are original and gives me a Lain vibe. I really like how the song 넌 날 절대 알지 못할거야 came out, and probably my favorite track but I also liked the last track.
“A two-part story, in how I met you one night, I saw you, I was with you and I had to leave since destiny wanted it that way. Everything was like a dream, I hope that one day we will see each other again. However, I will always be in your memory, I hope in your heart. I’m here.” – 夢想的頻道
It’s less than 40 minutes close. Enjoy the sound of vapor vocals as a crowd that never seems to leave makes noise in the background. I kind of wish the artist strategically removed the crowd as the track got longer. Just like a mall does near closing time. I wonder if this is going to be the last in the Maplewood Shopping Village series considering its closing time.
So what did you guys think of today’s releases? Find anything cool or buy a cassette? Come share it with us on the discord and hang out with other vaporwave fans!
