I hope everyone was able to pick up something awesome for Cassette Shop Day yesterday. In yesterday’s listing of all the cassettes released, I also added past albums I think everyone should listen to and purchase on cassette. It’s always cool to see a vapor album sell out imo.
Anyway today things are back to normal with a normal daily release. we have 2 physical releases worth sharing and 2 digital releases. Check em out. Did I miss a release? Let me know on twitter or instagram.
Virtual Dreams by Skyrealm (Compact Cassette)
That deep blue cassette looks so clean in the previews. I love it. This album reminds me a lot of 2814’s 新しい日の誕生. From the album art to the music. not that it’s a bad thing at all more like it fits that genre type and style.
Souvenir Cassette by After Dinner (Limited Edition CD – Subscriber’s Edition)
A album from 1987/1988 that has a pretty interesting production story (read the bandcamp) and some how Fish Prints has helped reissue this on cassette / cd in the USA. It’s experimental live Japanese avant pop… It’s a totally new experience compared to what I’m used to listening to. Some time it feels like a rock album some times a scary film and others a collage of blasting bass guitar. Try it out. I actually wish I could have grabbed a cassette but seems only CDs are available for now.
This song sounds so familiar, I can’t remember if Adrianwave played it on his live set or this is something him and Kitsune worked on in our Japanese Apartment. Regardless, I was surprised to see this in my bandcamp feed this morning. Pure future funk you’d expect from both of them, cool to see them releasing music together. I wonder if their (with Sparkly Night) secret album is still in the works.
You know that conflicting feeling of arguing with your buddies at the putt putt golf course that all putts should count? but then your friend reminds you he bought you on vacation to the beach to swim and not argue about something when you guys were teens? Then the 100% humidy hits you hard and it rains? That’s this album by F-F-Forecast! Well at least according to the album art. It’s a mix of vaporwave, chillsynth and all that’s in-between.
Ayane Fukumi – Live @ Love Loli [24/02/2019]
I don’t know what this is. It’s like the glitches, weirdest collection of sound I’ve ever heard and people are gathering around in Tokyo to listen to it. I’m pretty amazed artists like this exist and I have to promote it.
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!
