RIYL: Vaporwave, [adult swim] bumps

Label: Magical Garage Taste

After writing up that Memory Theatre release last week (with one of you lucky readers snatching up the last one), I decided to look more in to the Québec-based label Magical Garage Taste…  and lo, and behold, there’s more where that Memory Theatre release came from. TRANCE.BIZ’s Taman Shud is essentially a trojan horse with vaporwave kitsch as the façade, with a variety of electronic sub-genres on the inside – suffice it to say, it doesn’t neatly fit in vaporwave, or much anything else. Yes, if you take a gander at Taman Shud‘s cover you’d just assume it’s a lo-fi vaporwave archetype, complete with what almost resemble a Psychic Energy symbol from the Pokémon Trading Card Game. Taman Shud aims to intrigue as it traipses along a tightrope suspended above a chasm that is the Internet’s oblivion. As the EP plays on, I’m reminded of White Rainbow and even Wolfgang Voigt’s influential Gas project. Listen below to Taman Shud via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
