The Waiting Room Opens (夢)

Jan 25, 2015

Welcome  to  The  Waiting  Room!

Thanks to all who listened to the very first episode! We think it turned out pretty rad and we hope you did too! There is a ton of great music to play and we are going to play it all! The waiting room is hosted by us, Paul and Peter who both enjoy the vaporwave aesthetic. That's all you need to know. Back in December, Peter was visiting a Taco Bell and heard the original song that Google Merchandise Store - Notebook samples. We can't not play it after that. Props to Taco Bell for keeping it real. Both of us don't know what the original sample is, so if you do hit us up.

Our only segment (at the moment) went over big with us. Cars by Gary Numan was our first song of 45 on 33, a segment where we take a 45 rpm record and play it at 33 rpm. Uh oh. Hope we didn't lose any millennials right there! "What's a vinyls, lol?" Anyway, we played some stuff from local digital artist Jacob Whalen. The album Zoinks! Another Facebook Art Show: The Soundtrack sounds a little bit like James Ferraro’s Far Side Virtual but is much more experimental in nature. Zoinks! was made to accompany a Facebook art show that he hosted back in the fall. Perhaps the worst medium to host an art show, making it- perhaps- the best.

After playing the §E▲ ▓F D▓G§ Track, we were going to make a joke about how the song sounded like Shoewave, a genre in which a producer hits play on his or her laptop and then stares at their shoes in front of a crowd of 20 people. Oh well. Of course we couldn't get away with not playing something by Macintosh Plus either. It wouldn't surprise anyone that it was our first request. It is after all most people's vaporgateway song.

That's all for this week!
