vaporpunk, Chillwave + other releases
Not too much going on today in the releases but luckily we got some cool music to listen to regardless. Something less is more because we are not overwhelmed with choices. Did I miss a release? Let me know on twitter or instagram.
Pictures of Purple Skies by Memorex Memories (Limited Edition Cassette)
This incredible chillwave album released a few hours ago already sold out vinyl and almost out of the 50 cassettes. A true masterpiece for the genre and people obvious notice it. Memorex Memories is a chill wave favorite of mine so I’m really happy for him to be selling out his music and getting the recognition. Favorite song: Depature
I saw the tag vaporpunk on the bandcamp and wasn’t sure what to expect but yep this album has it. The first song, Off_the_Wall, actually has this hard hitting distant sound that really does feel kind rock. This is a rock album done justice in the vapor scene.
I don’t think I ever public thanked Snowdreams for coming up to me in that UK Future Funk show. I think he may have been the first to recognize me from MTHU. He’s a super chill dude and (am i remember correctly) a decent piano player. This vapor funk single is a step up from his last few releases. I really like that anime sounding voice right around the 1:30 mark. It really turned up the dance-ability and brought in more of the groove. Sweet single, can’t wait to see the EP or album. Hey, Snowdream. You should play some live shows if you’re making music this good.
