Building a Better World by 猫 シ Corp. & t e l e p a t h (Vinyl, cassettes & CDs)
The long awaited album with two of the biggest names in the vaporwave scene, 猫 シ Corp. and t e l e p a t h, is finally out on physical mediums. The day before the release, Agora Road’s Macintosh Cafe put together an amazing review of the album (found here) that can really give you some insight to the experience. Luckily I think both artists knew it was going to be a massive release and the vinyl, cassettes and CDs are not sold out yet probably due to the large volume they have made available. This album is going to go down in the history books and if you’re a collector of the vaporwave scene, you’re going to want to own this.
ブラックマジック (Black Magic) by Zer0 れい (Limited Edition Cassette)
One of my favorite albums from dark ambient artist Zer0 れい is now out on Palm ’84 in cassette and Vinyl form. If you have heard this album before check out the songs 偵察 (Reconnaissance) annd Scatter Shot. Also check out the interview I had with Zer0 れい earlier this year to learn more about this awesome ambient artist and his tips for starting DIY concerts for the vaporwave scene.
VOICE OF REVOLUTIONARY GIRL -Private Edition- by Kakumei Shojo (Limited Edition Cassette (re-release))
Very limited run of this ambient/electronic album, there’s only 2 copies. One is already gone. Luckily there’s CDs if that’s your thing. The song “Stroll” has some hints of vapor in it but overall it’s a pretty standard release.
Remnants by Lee Larson (Compact Disc)
This is the first time I’ve ever seen the tag pbr&b in an album. Which i guess stands for Alternative R&B. From the tracks I listened to, this more reminds me of electronic music mixed with music written for a disney theater play. The synths are cool, the beats are okay but the singing makes it kind of cheesy. I hate to say that because I don’t like making people feel bad about their music. I just wasn’t feeling this, don’t take it personally. CDs available if you like this sound.
4 tracks 4 seasons. Summer is is pretty cool with how it mixes tribal, synths and arpeggios. Winter is probably my favorite of the 3 as it feels like a acid song and the bass drum has a cool pop to it.
