Album Review

 Male Tears By Male Tears

Written by: Gbanas92 & IndyAdvant

While this new self-titled release may technically be the third album under Male Tears’ belt, it does in many ways represent a debut. What originally began as a solo act — under which the albums Endless Tears and Artism reside — is now a duo as Mister Mellow joins up, and the sound of the group has shifted and changed to reflect this new formula. While Male Tears remains at its core a synthpop outfit, there is now a greater representation of sounds, of styles, and most importantly, of personality.

Right out of the gate, the opening track, “Chained Up” is able to evoke the greatest acts of the new wave. If that’s a genre or sound you’ve grown up on or just grown fond of, the influence is immediately apparent. But this is no mere copy. The music doesn’t exist merely to pay homage to that which came before. The tandem has something of its own to say. Between the many music videos that have been released for tracks off this album, as well as the artwork itself, there is a cohesive vision at play. While sonically things scream New Order, visually we are met with something a bit more malleable. Think more along the lines of the chameleonic nature that helped define the career of David Bowie and you’re in the ballpark. The album elicits a fiercely androgynous sex appeal that permeates every layer of the release. The masks of these two personae –lipstick, eye shadow, hairstyling- are no better represented than on the album cover, with a version for each member of the group. Even the instruments contribute to this, as the tones and choices made culminate to help you peer at the world through the lens of Male Tears.

After the opener, things get even more energetic, with the intriguing “Let’s Pretend,” an uncannily catchy tune that revels in hypotheticals. In a world still reeling from the ongoing pandemic, the idea of viewing love or romance as an idea to be solely indulged in hypothetically is an especially intriguing concept. After the opener, it’s the first real moment where the album “locks eyes” with the listener as well. While the gaze may grow ever intense as the release wears on, here it’s teasing, playful.

But as we dive deeper into the release, the darker side of things starts to show up. While the tunes maintain their airiness thanks in large part to tinkling synths, the subject matter gets more concerning. Even the track titles themselves start to paint this picture. Playing pretend was fun and all, but “Good in the Dark” starts to take these fleeting fantasies further. While on the surface, this is the best Pat Benatar track in decades, the manifestations of those casual glances are getting more intense. Things are heating up, but what happens when the dark gives way to light?



“Creep Distance” is the answer to that question, which carries a far less peppy melody. The drums cut that extra bit harder, the vocals croon more, and the fantasy seems to be over. The most frequently uttered line in the track is “don’t stand so close to me.” A divide in the earlier dreams has formed. This is further reaffirmed by the lyrics explicity, saying “now that we’ve grown far apart.” If that doesn’t spell things out enough, the next track, “Human Errorz,” unbelievably gets more sinister. While the lyrical content is more pensive and less dramatic, the synths in this one are downright sinister. And that’s to say nothing of the punctuating, downright propulsive percussion.

But things can’t all be grim, can they? Surely you’ve got to be able to turn a corner eventually, right? Well what if we just fast-forwarded right to that? That’s what “Future X” decides to do, jumping forward past the dour ruminations of the last couple emotional tracks. We have a more peppy beat again, the synthesized strings are back, and the lyrics talk about not wanting to “think about any time but the future,” before repeating “take me to the future” in the chorus. A future where things are looking up perhaps?



But not so fast. “Adult Film” hasn’t had its say just yet. Opening with a solo bass line that sounds handmade for a keytar, this track probably has the most dramatic vocals of the release. The rigors of singing are more evident than ever, with the emotional strain of the subject matter being most evident. Really, the whole track feels off the rails. The dizzying arpeggiated xylophones represent the nucleus of the tune running through basically the whole song. But this manic pace was never going to last.



“She Lives in the Pipes” tones things back down a bit, bringing the tempo to a calmer, more controlled level. While the subject matter on the surface might sound, well, strange, sonically, this is one of the standouts on the album. While it’s a little trickier to find a place for this in the “story” we’ve crafted here, it’s got maybe the best chorus on the whole album. So let’s think of it as a narrative interlude or the infectiously catchy commercial that interrupted your regularly scheduled programming.

The respite doesn’t last long though, as the penultimate track brings an incredibly important revelation both in the context of the album, and more broadly, in everyday life. “I Should Feel How I Feel” may attempt to tackle the ability — or inability — to accept oneself for who they are. The song appears to deal with some pretty troubling subject matter, almost as if not being accepted is deserved for someone being the way that they are, and trying to come to grips with that revelation. After all of the events that had come before, this track may represent some kind of resigned acceptance to one’s role or purpose in the world. But understanding and acknowledging that is an important step in being able to move beyond it. It’s pretty bleak stuff, so what comes next is rather surprising. 



Whatever you were expecting next, it’s probably not a brilliant Rick Astley-esque tune, is it? Well with “Take My Picture”, that’s what we get. The drums carry the expected crisp gated reverb that defined much of ‘80s drumming — and don’t get us started on the synth tones! Given how bleak some of the past few minutes have felt, it’s perhaps encouraging that the album ends so optimistically. It affords us some hope for the future. And it’s a wonderful closer on an album that has us as optimistic as ever for the future of Male Tears. 

If you’re anxious to get your hands on the album you won’t need to wait long, as it will be dropping on Pacific Plaza Records Sunday, February 14th –yes, that’s Valentine’s Day- at 12PM PST.

Album Review

Nyx by Zer0 れい

Written by: listencorp

A low level buzz heralds the start of NYX. A little glimpse of the general hue of warm feedback that follows pretty much throughout the release. There’s a sound like some unfathomably large freight train peeling out of a gnarled, gothic station; but as the atmosphere settles a similar sound emerges at a different pitch, clarifying that what we hear is a melodic sequence rather than a sound effect. The hybridization of fizzling static and muffled angelic pads was the cause of such a shocking and intense beginning, but the two aspects separate fairly swiftly. What proceeds from this point sounds something like footage from the rapture spewing from an old television set. Instead of sounding grand and palpable, the pad strings leak out of an unstable and non-grandiose set of speakers. It is almost like awakening from a dream, there was a fleeting moment that felt as though we were experiencing this strange celestial event first-hand. However as we come to understand what is being presented, we realize it claws over toward us from a tired old screen.

As if the old hardware has been on too long and found a way to connect with the spiritual plane. Needle-like euphoria pierces through the unpredictable waves of fuzz, at points the melodies even seem to push through like a hand of pure light desperately trying to permeate its shoddy, fizzling encasement. Throughout this, Zer0れい remains unafraid of leaving the listener in moments of silence. For some artists, music of this style would cause a nerve-racking pressure, where it might feel as thought the artist must always be presenting the atmosphere explicitly. This would cause an overexposure to the fascinating atmosphere. But with Zer0れい there are gaps peppered about, moments without the guiding light of the euphoric ambience, and also where the feedback ceases to spit out static as well. In these brief periods of silence, it almost feels as though your soul is recuperating after being set upon by a strange and entrancing experience.

These fleeting respites end with a reiteration of the desolate and decrepit aura that controls NYX. There is also something incredibly unique about the melodies Zer0れい utilizes. They are unrelenting tendrils that sneak past the grainy fugue; long drawling laments. When it feels as though a melodic episode has concluded, the artist finds another combination of notes to keep the sorrowful performance going. In this way the track limps at points, with breaks in feedback and melodic narrative. This serves to amplify the fragmented and heady nature of the music as a whole. At certain stages, it almost sounds like there are voices meshed into the slow-attack notes. Noises like bells can also be heard throughout, before the onslaught of melody is enveloped in waves of heavy distortion. Toward the end, a swirling pool of the euphoric ambience begins to build. The lashes of harsh feedback continue, but every time they hit they disappear, more swiftly than before, into the burgeoning sea of beautiful noise. The opening side to Zer0れい‘s NYX is truly haunting. The atmosphere submerges everything from the very start, everything happens through this heady, violent sludge. But even in such torrid audio conditions, Zer0れい sneaks in moments of pure beauty.

The narrative takes a darker turn still as we enter the second half. The same large sweeps of metallic viscera appear, but this time do not often relent in any meaningful way. Instead, gargantuan shrouds of noise crash into slowly descending whistles. The falling tones are unsettling, as if the music has buckled from the pressure and now hurtles downward like a faltering aeroplane. The feeling is one of overarching disorientation. At least the first half of NYX had a safe space in its sheepish melancholy. In this second part, the listener is completely on their own amidst screaming tunes and violent walls of muddy, metallic nothingness. Even when the melody gains a little bit more of a footing and certain notes are sent across the listener’s bow, they are completely bested and beaten down by the constant monotony of the void. Low notes begin to coo patiently against the tide, almost choral in their delivery.

At a certain point, a deep bass sound begins to enmesh itself in with the dissonance, allowing for melody to inch its way into focus without being hindered by the relentless din. Here we find a little ballast upon which to try and weather the storm; we hear muffled ghosts of notes pulse through a thick fog. After throbbing feedback, all sounds begin to falter. Only certain crackles and flickers have a volatile feel to them, the rest of what we were hearing seems to have hurtled far away from us now. This is one of the only times it seems we are able to hide away from the atmosphere Zer0れい has created. But it is in no way comforting, it feels as if we are mere yards away from this strange ghostly tower in which the noisy struggle rages on. A heavenly chorus emerges through the grayscale rage of sound, its tune bending and screeching. The conclusion to NYX is not the rapturous recalibration of light and dark that we may have hoped for. Rather the two sounds slowly simmer down and stop, the pause is so sudden that it almost feels as if it could just be another swift intermission before the roaring shrieks back in. It fills the listener with dark wonderings about the sounds, which harbored so much power and rage that they could easily burn on forever past the project’s runtime.

Zer0れい assembles defunct sounds and feedback, pitting them against each other and occasionally fusing them together. This is a fairly basic methodology. But, in NYX the artist instills an incredibly harrowing atmosphere, an incapacitating journey through a volatile and alien landscape viewed through rusted old machinery. In the first part, one might imagine a lone TV set, spewing sick light into a living room and entrancing an unaware subject with visions of angelic beauty. The second part sounds like what would be playing when the police break down the subject’s door a few weeks later, finding the apartment’s contents vaporized and the owner driven to madness by the indescribable dark energy enshrined within what was playing.

Performers

Discoholic

The famed nu disco / future funk artist with a disco ball for a head joins the Disco Forever lineup to bring their brilliant sound to this rockin’ festival. Between the deluge of phenomenal remixes to their name, or the myriad of original tracks, Discoholic always delivers where it counts: catchiness. Look no further than recent singles “Discadance,” or the remix of Mere’s “Draw The Line” if you don’t believe us.

Bandcamp | Twitter | Instagram | Facebook

 FIBRE

Owner of Montaime, the disco-centric label, as well as being one of the most recognizable names in future funk, Fibre is responsible for many of the genres very best. With appearances on their own Montaime, as well as Business Casual, and Coraspect, they’ve been involved with many of vaporwave’s best and brightest labels. With tracks dating all the way back to 2014, Fibre represents one of the elder-statesmen of future funk, and for good reason.

Bandcamp | Twitter | Soundcloud | Facebook

Mere Notilde

With appearances on Fibre’s Montaime, Tiger Blood, and Business Casual, the Boston-based Mere Notilde has accrued quite the following. Look no further than their patreon for proof of this, where they release a track a week to a devoted fanbase. With a unique, more eclectic chopping style, Mere’s music is particularly adept at getting up in your face, and encouraging you to dance. And in future funk, there’s no higher compliment than that.

Bandcamp | Twitter | YouTube | Soundcloud

ED.

Music producer, co-founder of the Skyline Collective, and co-presenter of Disco Forever, ED. (also known as Elektric Dreams) is a well known figure in future funk. Hailing from Miami, Florida, ED. has been dropping fresh tunes since 2015, and their latest album Enter The Night released on My Pet Flamingo in mid 2020. They’ve also inspired countless others to begin their musical journey by sharing their wealth of knowledge and experience with the community via a sizable number of video tutorials on YouTube.

Bandcamp | Facebook | YouTube  | Twitter

Future Funk Monthly

Tampa based Future Funk Monthly is a DJ and curator of (surprise!) future funk music. True to their name, they’ve been releasing mixes of what they consider to be the best future funk tracks produced every single month since 2016. No stranger to live performances, they’ve DJ’ed at events like Aessential and Flamingo Fest, and are sure to bring the heat as usual to Disco Forever.

Bandcamp | Twitter | Soundcloud  | YouTube

Pan!c Pop

A member of Kawaii Bass and Nightfall Collective, this Toronto based DJ/Producer is a relatively new addition to the future funk scene. Their debut album, 5!ve 5tar -featuring collabs with the likes of DUCAT and Tokyo Wanderer- dropped on cassette via Neoncity Records earlier this year, and has made a strong showing. Infusing the sound of vaporwave and future funk with elements of trap and hip hop, it’s clear that Pan!c Pop has a bright and funky future ahead of them.

Spotify | Twitter | Soundcloud  | Instagram

Mélonade

With instantly recognizable branding, (the titular “Mélon”) the Scottish-based Mélonade offers some impressively unique takes on future funk. With their heavy emphasis on driving rhythms and chops, Mélonade’s the creator of some truly one-of-a kind future funk. This includes releases that dabble in genres you don’t often see overlap with future funk, such as mallsoft on the brilliant Dream Plaza. This experimentation allows for brilliant soundscapes you can’t find anywhere else in the scene.

Bandcamp | Twitter | YouTube | Soundcloud

Strawberry Station

Between their deluge of releases, booming patreon, or written pieces for the now defunct Private Suite magazine, Strawberry Station’s name has been plastered all across the scene for years. Between appearances on First Class Collective, Coraspect, Gulf Audio Company, My Pet Flamingo, and even more, it’s an understatement to describe Strawberry Station as prolific. And that’s to say nothing of the now legendary video that closed their WAVEPOOL set in 2020.

Bandcamp | Soundcloud | YouTube  | Twitter 

Rhodes Rodosu

Living and working in Mexico, Rhodes Rodosu has been putting out infectiously dance-able future funk singles and compilations with their signature chopping technique since 2016. Rather than define themselves by a single genre, though, they’ve also recently branched out with their latest self-released EP Aeris, full of sample-free compositions. Whatever the style, you can be sure their music will get you moving.

Bandcamp | Twitter | Soundcloud  | YouTube

Cobalt Road

Though they started out with a focus on vaportrap in 2015, Cobalt Road has since evolved into an accomplished future funk and disco producer in the intervening years, appearing on labels like DMT Tapes FL, Business Casual, and Montaime Records. From their home in Orlando, Florida, they appeared in some of 2020’s biggest live events, such as We <3 DMT and WAVEPOOL. With plans to showcase all new music for Disco Forever, it’s clear that the best is yet to come.

SleepPattern

SleepPattern is a Seattle-based cursed image curator and analog / digital hybrid hardware visual artist with a concentration on found footage, glitch, and video synthesis.

M▲XΣMUS

A digital artist, M▲XΣMUS is able to weave fantastical visual landscapes out of recognizable faces.

This transformative nature is especially well suited to vaporwave, providing a brand new means of exploring nostalgia.

Bandcamp

Prenoko

Prenoko is a visualist all about the “here and now.” To this point they have preferred to creat visuals live alongside the performance, so as to capture the visceral nature that music affords.

Join us in our excitement to see how this change in approach translates to the festivities!

GBANAS92

After ravenously listening to as much vaporwave as he possibly could for years, gbanas92 eventually decided to do something with all that passion, contributing a number of articles to Private Suite Magazine before its unfortunate closure.

This led to his joining up with the Utopia District team, to continue to writing about vaporwave about as much as humanly possible. Reviews, news, and anything in between. When he’s not listening to vaporwave, something that happens admittedly rarely, he is probably playing PlayStation way more than he should. Either that or watching hockey.
