Contemporary Tapes releases Vaporwave Christmas Story compilation; the perfect stocking stuffer for the inanimate Roman bust in your life

Contemporary Tapes releases Vaporwave Christmas Story compilation; the perfect stocking stuffer for the inanimate Roman bust in your life
(Inanimate Roman bust sold separately.)

Great news: Nashville-based label Contemporary Tapes is hosting a Christmas party, and you’ve landed a spot on the guest list! Leave your Rick Owens in the foyer and make yourself at home! Maybe pull a beanbag chair up to the potted Christmas ficus fern and pour yourself a styrofoam cup of iced eggnog, dyed purple for aesthetic effect: you’re in for an unforgettable night.

22 vaporwave artists from across the netscape have dropped off re-gifted takes on holiday classics for this celebration of all things mass-produced and wintry: Vaporwave Christmas Story chops and screws your nostalgia, featuring choice cuts like nano神社 (✪㉨✪)’s high-pass-filtered flip of “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” Trucks Passing Trucks’ wonky lo-fi hip-hop remix of “White Christmas,” and a sinister chillwave soundscape turned in by haircuts for men, who made an appearance on our list of third-quarter favorites.

psst: Rumor has it that Contemporary Tapes is also sending thirty choice attendees home with a “hand dubbed” cassette edition of the album: it might be worth slipping the host a few bucks’ worth of Mighty Max Pogs to secure a copy.

Take it home. Pop a VHS pressing of Christmas Comes to Pac-Land in the ‘ol VCR while the tape spins. Get cozy. Get aesthetically aligned with the world around you. It’s Cyber Monday everyday around these parts, and you might as well get yourself good and assimilated.
