RIYL: White Rainbow

Label: Celldeath

☒ is the name – that’s not just your computer being unable to display a special character. The cover to Æther Paradise Online reminds me of the cover to White Rainbow’s ÆGIS. Now, unfortunately, since my last computer bricked (with all my music on it) and my iPod Classic is all but working, I can’t revisit it to see if there are sonic similarities to go with the pyramid motif – something rooted in the new age zeitgeist. Æther Paradise Online is muzak if muzak were listenable. Its vaporwave is leisurely and with plenty of trappy bass (and syncopated hi-hats/snares) slathered on to the production and with, of course, downshifted vocal samples with some paul stretch for spice. You’ll also find brooding sludgy guitar peeking out now and again. You could call this album many things but you can’t call Æther Paradise Online a one-trick pony, an umbrella that a lot of vaporwave tends to fall under. ☒ has you dipping your feet in to the enlightening rays of pyramid power. Listen to Æther Paradise Online below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
