情報デスクVIRTUAL – 札幌コンテンポラリーPosted: December 8, 2012
What the hell is going on!!?? Lotsa psychedelic youngsters these days are leaving behind the new age and prog electronix stylings influences and decide to go parodistic and experimental and go for a super-crystal-clear, HD-quality vaporwave micro-genre. They are committing one sonic sacrilege after another, bringing into the broad daylight the shittiness of the ubiquitous elevator/lobby plaza whatever corporate music that doesn’t mean anything and is not intending to be challenging or, even worse, offensive to anyone. The weirdly named 情報デスクVIRTUAL project (the title standing for “Virtual Information Desk”) channels those unobtrusive muzak spirit perfectly, pitching a slowed-down, ambiental lounge pop surrealism against the painfully heavy-handed and corporate sounding track names. Those vaporwave guys have made it their mission to fully expose the vapid, sonic horror extending from every single goddamn piece of “corporate music”.
Don’t fight the vaporwave, it will devour you anyway.
