Mammal Functions, by Frostower

Delicious and thoughtful Lofi House and Experimental Techno from the mind of Anthony Pandolfino under the FROSTOWER alias. Overwhelmingly nice energy here in my opinion, with 5 tracks exploring the different sonic possibilities of deconstructed electronics, fuzzy tones and overall raw energy. In fact the very nature of the sounds are almost punk – leading this to be possibly a better representation of the what “Dreampunk” could mean as a genre and a sound. Ambient-Punk? I am sure you can come up with a hundred genres to pin on this style, but it’s pure satisfaction for me. The energy combined with the lo-fi grit, the subtle atmosphere built within each track – it’s all very hypnotic and almost addictive, as I find myself playing this one top-to-bottom on repeat. Grab the digital album now via bandcamp at name your own price – and be sure to explore the other aliases and offerings from Anthony Pandolfino via Mystic Timbre!

New Life, by ASVMR

𝑵𝒆𝒘 𝑳𝒊𝒇𝒆 ® is a new full-length and collaborative project by ₳§ᗐMR and friends, currently released via Vivarium Recordings with a physical version on the horizon. Featuring some top-notch collaborators like maggie.wav, V//Tomo, Soul▲Craft and many more – somehow this manages to be one of ₳§ᗐMR’s most focused and comprehensive projects to date. Never shying away from a unique concept to package sounds within – ₳§ᗐMR’s 𝑵𝒆𝒘 𝑳𝒊𝒇𝒆 ® is a full blown course in sonic self-actualization. Drawing a lot of influence from Dystopian Cyberpunk style while utilizing very abstract and creative interpretations of Vapor Trap and Alternative Ambient – at times pushing towards surreal Dreampunk and lush Synthwave. It’s a diverse and rich listening experience from top to bottom, and definitely one of my favorite releases by ₳§ᗐMR to date….

Download and Stream the album now – and keep an eye out for a physical release on September 18th via Pacific Plaza Records.
