Is this the most disappointing album of 2015? Has a few good songs like the opener, Annie, Smut!, Slumlord and the re-release but overall it's pretty unremarkable. I bought tickets for one of his shows next month and I just hope he plays a lot from Psychic Chasms and Era Extrana which were both miles ahead of this
I'd say Era Extrana was definitely more made for popular appeal, at least it was really good though. This is just bad though. Psychic Chasms, Should Have Taken Acid With You and Mind, Drips Era Extrana> Rest of Psychic Chasms> power gap> this
it's really disappointing since I love Era Extrana and Psychic Chasms and was really looking forward to hearing them live but never got around to it and now when I'm seeing him it's just crap
That album cover just annoys me
Such a blatant attempt at using an aesthetic (which at this point is already starting to look dated, and not in a good way) that you're really not affiliated with in any way. It's almost worse when a pseudo-indie musician does it (instead of a bonafide pop star) because you expect them to try a little harder.
>not affiliated with in any way
>one of the fathers of chillwave, neo-80s revivalism and internet meme genres is not affiliated with Vaporwave at all
Were you listening to music back in 09?
It's to match the aesthetic of the musical stylings he is taking from the 1980's. The cover is appropriate, too bad the music is mixed poorly and less memorable than even psychic chasms
