Brought to us by the ever-amazing Bogus Collective, we have a lovely full-length classic vaporwave album by Fester’s Quest titled FANCY FEAST (blue label). Now – was I attracted to listen to this album simply because there was a cat on the cover art? Yes. But as anticipated the sounds within are clever and enjoyable – utilizing a very classic and traditional flavor of vaporwave, FQ takes the listeners hand gently and guides us through the fuzzy haze. The project is overwhelmingly instrumental, lacking the pitched-down and chopped vocals one would expect in such vaporsounds – instead opting for melodies and riffs on the guitar. The result is quite nice, making this record great for background listening where you want just a little more interesting flavor in your ambience.
New sounds presented by the BOGUS // Collective team – WORLSD.com by Marlowave2099 is a long-playing epic of ambient vapor and mallsoft styles. Concepts of a lost and lonely virtual world swirl in the minds eye – logging on, creating an avatar, and floating directionless in the cybersea. Some really nice treatment of melodies and moods here – sometimes the soundtrack gets a bit spooky, but never overtly dark. Marlowave2099 has done a great job of constructing a world with these sounds…
The ever-lovely Cats Corp brings us another mix of mallsoft tunes as relaxing as any trip to your local shopping center. Usual culprits here of blissfully chambered sounds, tons of soulful solos and brilliant progressions. Enjoy this 6-track project now at the price you choose via the artists Bandcamp page.
