Macintosh Plus – Floral ShoppePosted: December 8, 2012
Kitschy, jarringly old-fashioned computer graphics? Check! A hint of lo-fi nostalgia? Check! An obvious use (or rather: abuse) of rather dated terms and formats? Check! Ladies and gentlemen, it seems like we’re dealing with another vaporwave release. Here, however, the pop sensibilities appear to be stronger than in the previous entry’s music, going for the chooped-and-screwed variety of non-offensive, slowed-down synth po(o)p. It is dusted and perfectly clean at the same time, damaged and surreal yet fully up-to-date and coherent, a cut’n’paste patchwork of hypnagogic pop structures with an air of hair salon muzak added. Weird, but certainly enjoyable.
