5.0 classic
Nmesh Dream Sequins
Truly phenomenal stuff here. I love the fact that this album works so well, given all the ways on paper it seems like it shouldn't- mostly the fuckin' Mr. Potato Head commercial halfway through the Rainforest track, and the damn Fantano sample that occupies the last five minutes of the album. Yet it all blends together in such a fascinating way that directly contributes to the current status of vaporwave while poking fun at it a bit too.
Oneohtrix Point Never Garden of Delete
Garden of definitely isn't the kind of album for everyone. It instead strikes me as the kind of record that'll leave a broad impact on a relatively small group of people, which contrasts so much with the more grandiose vision of R Plus Seven. The erratic skips in style here are off-putting at first, but more listens help you realize the spontaneous nature of the release is what makes it work so damn well. And despite however much you may hear about the concept of this record, don't let that convince you this thing needs context in order to be enjoyed. I listened to this thing at least 30 times before looking up the references
