I spent most of today staring at a computer (as I do every day, but I worked several hours longer than usual) and fried my brain once again. So, it’s one of those weird music nights, I suppose. “Ammonia Clouds” is a song from Canadian artist Blank Banshee’s 2012 debut Blank Banshee 0 (Hologram Bay). The genre is something known as “vaporwave,” a semi-ironic musical and A E S T H E T I C movement that incorporates parodies of consumerism, 90’s computer culture, and elevator music. Blank Banshee mixes hip-hop influences into this song, which gives it the sound of a trap-muzak hybrid, something you’d get down to in a retrofuturistic dentist office waiting room. Honestly don’t know what more to say about this one; despite not really understanding the subculture, I like the song.
