RIYL: vaporclassix

Label: 100% Electronica

Out of the blue today, aussie vaporwave legends S UR F I N G threw their sophomore album up for preorder on Bandcamp.  Deep Fantasy, their classic debut record, is cited as one of the centerpieces for the vaporwave genre.

First single Otherside wastes no time gettin’ down to business.  Rolling on a sizzling bassline and an OG funk beat, the first 15 seconds could easily pass for a lost Isley Brothers track or a forgotten deep cut from the g-funk West Coast hip hop era of the early 90s.  Penny and Leroy quickly shift gears with hazy guitar warps and vocal treatments, though, keeping it embedded firmly in the Surfing wheelhouse despite a slight stylistic shift.  Don’t worry, vaporkids, you’ll still dig it.

There are 500 copies of the album on black vinyl after the ‘buy’ link.  Keep in mind that their debut album sold out almost immediately.  I wouldn’t bet on this one lasting through the weekend.
