Every single musical microgenre spawned by tumblr. No one will ever convince me there's a difference between the various nounwaves other than what images go into the pastel photoshop collages, and I'm pretty sure I could write a script that generates new a e s t h e t i c s and albums and rakes in the tens of dollars from bandcamp.

Steam/Origin/whatever. It baffles me that having to run spyware to play a game has become acceptable.

I like to think of the newer "waves" as themes rather than genres. Themes grant you permission to use samples of related audio and video. The OG vaporwave though, that really takes more effort in the craft I feel.

I love vapor/chillwave, but the best source is YouTube.
