Nice, but not this:

I guess it's 'retro synthwave' or just 'retrowave'? It's like music from our childhood's distilled.

It's vaporwave. Pure and unadulterated vaporwave.

That there are two books about vaporwave lends credo to the argument that it's far more about the experience and posturing than the music... an argument you strengthen by rejecting my honest track in favor of schmaltzy shit with graphics of Larson scanners and neon.

My understanding is actually that both what I and mk posted are really more synthwave. While not at all mutually exclusive, vaporwave tends to not be so synth-driven. mk's video is actually outrun if you want to be surgical (yes, I have encountered people that will nitpick over these micro-genres).

The more I think someone else cares, the more likely I am to call it techno.

To piss them off.

The less techno-like, the better. There is no joy quite like referring to Autechre as techno in front of someone who knows THEY RILLY RILLY ARNT

You pissed me off, too...that map might be the ugliest transit-mappy map I have ever seen.
