We (probably) don’t actually listen to any vaporwave, but we get into some legit analysis of what it may or may not be (and/or hypnagogic pop), as well as a brief tangent into idea of being on a superhero team and discuss the process of hand-making vinyl (listen to the Greenway Records episode of The Subliminal Inevitable show for more). While we’re at it, there’s also some great new music from Fruit Tones, Big Search, Esther Rose, Quaker Parents, and Wyndham to keep your ears around!

As always, we welcome your feedback at (408) 782-4638!
