RIYL: Vaporwave, [adult swim] bumps
Label: Magical Garage Taste
After writing up that Memory Theatre release last week (withÂ one of you lucky readers snatching up the last one), I decided to look more in to the QuĂ©bec-based labelÂ Magical Garage Taste… Â and lo, and behold, there’s more where that Memory Theatre release came from. TRANCE.BIZ’sÂ Taman Shud is essentially a trojan horse with vaporwave kitsch as the faĂ§ade, 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 atÂ 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 PokĂ©mon Trading Card Game.Â 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 toÂ Taman Shud via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
