1) Riverwave- ‘Tonight’
Vaporwave’s classic dreary monotony gets a computerised, glittery makeover by mysterious artist Riverwave. A new mix has been released on their Soundcloud account and it’s a tune that epitomizes relaxation. Inspired by sounds from popular ‘Anime’ shows in 1980s Japan, Riverwave will make you feel like you’re the only one driving down the motorway at midnight.
2) Devendra Banhart- ‘Jon Lends a Hand’
Subtle, sweet, and surreal; this tune from Devendra Banhart’s new album Ape in Pink Marble, delivers melancholy that will satisfy long time fans and surprise the new ones. There’s something gentle about this track, with its hint of harps and the murmur of the warm keyboard, that will revive tired eyes.
3) D. D. Dumbo- ‘King Franco Picasso’
Newcomer D. D. Dumbo is rising to prominence with his new album Utopia Defeated, crashing onto the scene with a disruptive pop-esque sound which here takes a jumpy and spooky turn—perfect for Halloween parties. This track might offend someone with a penchant for the more delicate side of lo-fi, but the odd blending elements of smooth jazz with the sparkling guitar sounds of shoegaze is refreshing.
