Viewing Gum Listening Post is back, and it is number seventeen. We’re talking something fairly, if not moody and if not gloomy, dramatic and serious this time round, with shoegazey sonic soundscapery, earnest wistful guitar a-jangling, and outpourings of emotion, culminating in an epic climax care of Starcadian.
And sure, while I’m at it, might as well flag up my other musical outputs as I haven’t in a while. Though no longer an ongoing concern, my Japanese music podcast Tokyo Soundscape is still available. I’ve also got Soundcloud mixes influenced by and featuring video game tunes (as a result of my monthly DJing at Gamerdisco in London), though there’s some synthwavey/retronica goodness there too. But hey, let’s not get too sidetracked. It’s VGLP time, so click here to open up the playlist, or stream below.
