Yes, yes, it's ANOTHER thread about hauntological shit. But isn't vaporwave, by the process of aestheticization inherent in it, ultimately a celebration of all the soulless corporate trash it purports to poke fun at? I realize I'm generalizing somewhat and not all vaporwave necessarily has anything, positive or negative, to do with capitalism. But if you listen to something like Ferraro's Far Side Virtual, or Luxury Elite's TV Party, doesn't it conjure an image that seems genuinely desirable, even if it's empty? Even at its most uncanny (like a lot of the "broken transmission" subgenre) doesn't it aestheticize its subject matter and thus make it more bearable if not outright enjoyable? Isn't that why the aesthetic has taken off to begin with?

Is there any way to really pull off this "ironic" approach to music without ultimately producing either a celebration of what you're trying to attack or something that nobody actually wants to listen to? If we wanted to turn this method against capitalism could we instead create nostalgia not for the ultracapitalist 80s but for times of greater cooperation and a genuinely functioning society? Would there even be any point to doing so?

>I guess Marx and Engels aren't real socialists considering they were big fans of classical music and many composers from their period and before.

link to their spotify liked pages?
seriously tho what artists did they like


I don't know. It gets more obvious with subgenres like mallsoft which seems to intentionally give feeling of emptiness that consumerism doesn't fill, anxiety caused by pressure it induces and gently reminds the listener of decaying capitalist infrastructure and that capitalism itself too could fall. Though that's just me pretentiously saying it sounds like haunted malls.


you realize theres like 100 different subgenres right?
how is this shit a "critique of capitalism" or related to politics at all


Here's the catch: even if the image is genuinely enjoyable, vaporwave is mostly about a lost future that capitalism vaguely promised rather than about any period of actually existing capitalism. You might well say it promises a vision of a desirable capitalist "future", but that "future" is the future of the long-passed. It's a future capitalism promised, something which was designed to be desirable but which never had the discomfort of becoming reality and suckin-
oh i've already written this post lol slow boards >>1260



>Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, visionary master of reggae, dies aged 85
WTF.. the upsetter.. I thought he'd live forever bros.. :(


Rest in peace.


85 bros, he was so young
Fr though, one of the most influential musicians of the past sixty years. Always forget he produced Heart of the Congos too, maybe the GOAT reggae album


What are his best works, I only know random songs.

Group of lofi soundcloud artists that gained popularity thanks to their edgy lyrics
Negative XP, EggWhite, Sodaboy64, Belowground, Gezebelle Gaburgably etc

Are you aware of any of them? What do you think, based or cringe?

I've made that thread cause in the last few months i've become a big fan of Gezebelle Gabugarbly, currently one of my favourite artists.
Their album Chunk is really good and concistent, i would recommend that everyone listen to it

The people who liked Negative XP are "black pilled" twitter or the kids on twitter


cringe. 2000's rap is more offensive and actually entertaining.

You ever listen to some music and can read the lyrics but don't really get it is about?

This is the place to post that music and other anons will give their interpretation at it

I'll start


I head ID and I thought this song was about psychology


This sound kinda seems sus. Is it a racist song about being scared of different looking people?


what is crystal blue persuasion about?
any answer about meth being blue will be ignored


lyrics are easily the least important aspect of music

The greatest album of all time.
If you've listened to it, you already know how great it is. If you haven't listened to it, what are you doing??? GO LISTEN TO IT!!!!!!!!

probably the best produced record I've ever heard


its just folk, why does everything have to have hyper specific categorization?


I love Loveless but partly for nostalgia, I think their 2013 release mbv is much more interesting so you should check that out if you haven't.

Everyone knows the best way to be a rebel is to categorize everything as rigorously as possible.


No it's not. Listen to more music.
