  • Vicksburg.Glacier – Remixed Lo-fi Vintage Blues

    Dave Wesley, September 17th 2018

    With music production software is now ubiquitous and available to anyone with a smartphone, tablet, and/or PC, some amazing esoteric sub-sub-sub-genres and online communities have emerged that deserve attention (i.e. vaporwave, aestheic, simpsonwave, club bathroom remixes, and lo-fi anything, etc.).  As a producer, it’s all so very fascinating, especially given that my productions over the last […]

    • Amoeba Music – What’s In My Bag Series

      Dave Wesley, July 24th 2018

      Amoeba Music is one of the world’s coolest independent record stores, based in California.  They’ve been posting their “What’s In My Bag” YouTube series for many years now, which Amoeba describes as “Our award-winning series featuring artists and tastemakers sharing what they found shopping at Amoeba.” It’s educational and entertaining.  And, thanks to “What’s In […]

      • Meitei – Lo-fi Ambient and Beats From Hiroshima

        Dave Wesley, February 28th 2018

        I’m enthralled by my discovery of Meitei (thanks to Bandcamp’s Best New Ambient post for February 2018). While not tagged as “vaporwave”, this producer would fit in such a genre-d mix.  This producer’s releases stylistically span ancient Japanese music ambient… to LO-FI hip hop beats… to experimental sound art scenes. Meisui / 冥水 by Meitei […]

        • Bad Tracking

          Adas Butler, February 7th 2018

          Filthy heavy destructive. This is as underground should be – incomprehensible to outsiders and home to the adventurer. It’s leftfield and industrial and uncompromising – enjoy getting your head unstraight with this:

          • Département d’Éducation Psychique

            Adas Butler, January 24th 2018

            This is nice and out-there. Space jazz techno-kind-of, truly experimental music that allows you to roam free as you listen. Out on Fou Records, the French label that supports and respects the power of improvised music across genres, it’s a live recording from OHM Berlin set to vinyl. Check out both sides below and tune […]

            • Imprec Fundraiser Sale

              Adas Butler, January 10th 2018

              • Leafar Legov – Family

                Adas Butler, January 6th 2018

                “Giegling can be described as a feeling, where the warmth of nostalgia is brought to vivid life and the instinctive pleasure of the dance is tempered with an existential inquisitiveness.” Family, the new record from Leafar Legov on the Giegling label, is fantastically deep, warm and varied; the perfect antidote to anyone who still says […]

                • Who The Hell Is Caveman LSD?

                  Dave Wesley, January 5th 2018

                  Was reading Huerco S 2017 chart on Boomkat, which includes hilarious non-music entries to throw you off his scent…  and I dug to find his listed Caveman LSD track…  It rules.  My perfect combo of lo-fi post-dub-techno.  Artist name fits the mood. Only a few out there and nothing in digital form.  I want more.  […]

                  • Deep Ambient Vaporwave From Japan: ekoda

                    Dave Wesley, January 2nd 2018

                    I virtually stumbled upon this great and prolific ambient vaporwave artist on Bandcamp on the first workday of 2018, which I am sure is a great omen for the year.  Googling ekoda produces no relevant results.  Another mysterious and wonderful aural find.  This music is haunting, concise, and specific.  I’m in melancholic love.  Don’t let […]

                    • Mysterious Experimental Ambient from April Larson

                      Dave Wesley, December 13th 2017

                      Thanks to Bandcamp related releases suggestions, I’ve made another recent discovery of an underground experimental ambient producer, April Larson.  Don’t let the unassuming name and smiley photo fool you.  Her voluminous productions are dark exploratory ventures… aural cinema at it’s poetic best. Warm regards, Dave Wesley – Porto, Portugal Louisiana Gothic by April Larson
