Timecrawler 82 Brings Retrowave To FMA

via bandcamp.

Retrowave is a term used to describe music that hearkens back to early synth sounds used in pop. In this case, think of early Japanese animation. Fast cars, chunky moto jackets, night marketplaces, dance clubs and asymmetrical hair. It might also be called Citypop - a term that is a jazzy, cosmopolitan sound that was all the rage in 1980s Japan. This album, Osaka Lights, brings the more synth-driven sound to the fore.

Opening with "Driving In The Rain" (complete with field recordings from a rainstorm), the tone is set: this is an album for cruising around a neon-lit city at night, sparkling and refracted in a million raindrops on a windshield. "Mount Fuji" gets a little darker and blustery, whereas "Palms and Seagulls" has a distinct summery, beachy cruise vibe. Listen below.
