  1. Marlowe
    by Marlowe (L'Orange & Solemn Brigham)
    Lost Arts Lost Arts
    L'Orange's sampled vaudeville and Solemn Brigham's jettisoning lyrics make for an ambitious and striking album. Each track is unique, yet come together into the story of the whole. It's both comedic and thought provoking, and every verse feels like a brushstroke filling in an artist's magnum opus.
  2. Concept Vague
    by Night Lovell
    Light From The Car prod. Bine Light From The Car prod. Bine
    For most rappers, low-toned rapping is a sign of laziness, but Lovell uses it to add to his depressing, burdening sound. It's nothing like a Gregorian chant, and yet it's the only comparison I can think of making.
  3. Possessor
    by GosT
    Loudas Deceit Loudas Deceit
    GosT digging back into his roots in this album. It sets him apart in the synthwave-scape, but I hope this the extreme and not a sign of a trend.
  4. Everything Could Be Fine
    by Sun Glitters
    too much to lose too much to lose
    "Earthy" and "grounded" is how I would describe the bass on this album. A creative connection between joyful melodies and melancholic harmonies.
  5. Youths
    by Slow Magic
  6. Sorry Safari
    by Slow Magic
  7. How To Run Away
    by Slow Magic
    Still Life Still Life
    Slow Magic is the master of his domain, an eternally midsummer twilight beachfront domain littered with campfires and dancing, discordant and carefree youths.
  8. Face Up
    by Washed Out
  9. Best Blues
    by Small Black
    Boys Life Boys Life
    Reminiscent of Daft Punk and Pharell's Lucky if put through an ambient filter. Small Black are excellent at making a unified track from what individually would sound like a mess of noise, like taking a frayed rope and winding it into one cord.
  10. Resting State
    by HOME
    10 10
    Half-track demos that sound like rejects from "Falling Into Place" that can really only be described as the essence of HOME. These tracks strengthen in my mind the idea that Odyssey was either a break from the regular or even just a fluke. 35 songs worth of bliss, and each one ends with you wanting more.
  11. Eyesore
    by Royal Brat
    Snowball Snowball
    Garage band in its most pure form straight from my hometown of Minneapolis.
  12. SpookyFish
    by Spookyfish
    Marriage [SpookyFish Remix] Marriage [SpookyFish Remix]
    A mellow remix that contrasts greatly, and beautifully, with the other remixes.
  13. Scavenger
    by SCATTLE
  14. LVL.2 Remixes
    by SCATTLE
    LVL.2 (Dan Terminus Remix) LVL.2 (Dan Terminus Remix)
    None of these sound anything close to the original track, and I mean that in the best way. So many big names in the underground electronic scene here all bringing their clear influence and sound to physically transform this Scattle track
  15. Timelapse
    by SCATTLE
    Far Out Far Out
    Arguably this could be considered the essential Scattle album. The complexity of each track seems to increase as you go through the album.
  16. Harbor
    by The Green Kingdom
    Harbor Harbor
    The first Green Kingdom album I've felt emotionally invested in since Expanses...such a serene sound is painted in the melodies.
  17. LEATHER TEETH
    by Carpenter Brut
  18. Epoch
    by Tycho
    Horizon Horizon
    A stalwart album by Tycho that engages the listener in an electronic world of high flying exploration.
  19. Pacific Decade
    by USF
    Disruption Disruption
    An offbeat indie album that takes a few listens to fully get into.
  20. Fibre - Personality
    by Ѕtratford Ct.
    Such a fun, peppy track that was completely outside the realm of the other tracks on this selection. Love to just jam on repeat and hear the snappy snare kick in each loop.
  21. PINK GUY
    by Pink Guy
    Ramen King Ramen King
  22. Sketch
    by SCATTLE
  23. Falling Into Place
    by HOME
    Head First Head First
    Head First is misleading in that it promises a grand journey of an album on par with Odyssey, yet neglects to let you know until the following tracks that you will instead be stuck at a houseparty with former high school friends with the smooth, peppy sounds of HOME in the background.

    Does varying from Odyssey make it a bad album? Not at all, but rather it's an album you should listen to until you work out your expectations for it to be an Odyssey 2.
  24. Gray/Grey
    by $uicideboy$
    Clouds as Witnesses Clouds as Witnesses
    The great use of the Boards of Canada sample even overshadows KYS Part II
  25. Grey Sheep II
    by $uicideboy$
    A Girl Named Drool and a Pack of Kools [Prod. JCKIE JEWLZ] A Girl Named Drool and a Pack of Kools [Prod. JCKIE JEWLZ]

    by $uicideboy$
    Runnin' Thru the 7th with My Woadies Runnin' Thru the 7th with My Woadies
    New Orleans and Florida based rappers $uicideboy$ and Pouya respectively team up for five tracks on this album. Ruby's opening verse in "Runnin' Thru the 7th with My Woadies" combined with the jazz sample really makes this track the shining star on this album.
  27. I No Longer Fear the Razor Guarding My Heel (III)
    by $uicideboy$
    Soul Doubt Soul Doubt
    Continuing with the jazzy sounds of New Orleans on the previous "Razor" EPs, the feature here is the clever use of samples as much as the duo's own rapping talents.
  28. Now the Moon's Rising
    by $uicideboy$
    Can of Worms Can of Worms
    A grisly sounding track on a grisly sounding album. It's hard to say everything works, and after having heard Paris enough times, I've gotten sick of it, yet it's worth the pickup nonetheless.
  29. 7th or St. Tammany
    by $uicideboy$
    Drugs/Hoes/Money/Etc. Drugs/Hoes/Money/Etc.
    Some spacey sounding samples especially on some later tracks; I really appreciate those. Sometimes some empty space within tracks that feels too long, but still one of their stronger works.
  30. Eternal Grey
    by $uicideboy$
    Ultimate $uicide (Feat. Denzel Curry) Ultimate $uicide (Feat. Denzel Curry)
    An amazing collaboration within a solid album, albeit almost excessive.
  31. Dark Side of the Clouds
    by $uicideboy$
    Antarctica Antarctica
  32. Dive
    by Tycho
    Coastal Brake Coastal Brake
    Sounds of a California summer simmer throughout this album with the perfect mix of reminiscence, nostalgia, and energy. Coastal Brake exemplifies this the best, with Melanine a close second sounding like the beginning to a car ride up the coast.
  33. Before The Night
    by HOME
    Before The Night Before The Night
    Sounds like the title, if that makes sense. A solemn call to the warm, sticky summer night that approaches, reminiscing over the joys and sorrows of the day. Absolutely beautiful. If I'm Wrong right after just adds to the sound.
  34. Expanses
    by The Green Kingdom
    Untitled Untitled
    Track 2 btw. Beautifully expansive sounding; he hit exactly what he was aiming for.
  35. The Fall
    by SCATTLE
  36. KILL YOURSELF Part I: THE $UICIDE SAGA
    by $uicideboy$
    Kill Yourself Kill Yourself
    Hear where it all started! A softer sound than what they would become known for, and one that's unique enough to warrant the purchase.
  37. Odyssey (Vinyl Edition)
    by HOME
    Rains (Bonus Track) Rains (Bonus Track)
    What a spectacularly grand sounding piece. Definitely worth the physical vinyl copy...if you can get your hands on it.
  38. Blank Banshee 1
    by Blank Banshee
    Metamaterial Metamaterial
    BB ups the ante on this one, an album that's likewise a continuation, a one-uped replica, and strangely enough a parody of his first album.
  39. MEGA
    by Blank Banshee
    Gunshots Gunshots
    Gotta go big or go home. BB reinvents himself again, yet keeps his signature sound. This album's all the grander, and full of 90s sounds. What synthwave has done for the 80s, vaporwave has for the 90s, and BB keeps it alive (vaporwave is not dead!)
  40. My Liver Will Handle What My Heart Can't
    by $uicideboy$
    Tulane Tulane
    A physically and emotionally dark dive into the duo's depraved psyche. This album is a good starting point for anyone new to $b$.
  41. Radical $uicide
    by $uicideboy$
    Memoirs of a Gorilla [Prod. Getter x Budd Dwyer] Memoirs of a Gorilla [Prod. Getter x Budd Dwyer]
    Although only 5 tracks, it's well worth the $7. Possibly some of their best work, and they're only going up.
  42. Non Paradisi
    by GosT
    Maleficarum Maleficarum
    It's almost a bad thing that Maleficarum was the teaser track, because it was so good I was initially disappointed with this album. After more listening, I find it's a good album (doesn't hold up to Behemoth, but that's hard to hold up to your own work), but in junction with the Secret Arcana, is an amazing release. GosT decided to try some new sounds as well as keeping much of his old sounds. Some endeavours work, others not so much. In the end, it's still very much well worth the buy.
  43. Non Paradisi (Secret Arcana)
    by GosT
    Sacrament (Extended) Sacrament (Extended)
    Took my least favorite track off of Behemoth and made it one of my favorites. I definitely felt, when listening to the original, it was a good starting concept that wasn't fleshed out fully and it seems like GosT felt the same. Good to see artists push their own work to new extremes!
  44. Blank Banshee 0
    by Blank Banshee
    B:/Start Up B:/Start Up
    The rest of the album has electronic songs that, like other vaporwave songs, show the emptiness in electronic music and the lack of effort that can be injected to make them, but Blank Banshee goes a step further and actually puts effort into their music to make it worth listening to
  45. Stratford Ct. | Melior
    by Ѕtratford Ct.
    HOME - Still Life HOME - Still Life
    This song reflects the album art so well; it sounds like a polo match across empty digital landscapes
