上海/香港 out now!

The dreampunk debut album by new duo 沙漠鱿鱼 is out now!

Hiraeth Records is proud to announce the official release! Be ready for: “A hazy ambient experience through the neon dreampunk streets of beautiful Shanghai and bustling Hong Kong.”

“沙漠鱿鱼” (Desert Squid) is a collaboration project between desert sand feels warm at night and Uncle Squidz. Both artists are active in the vaporwave scene – desert sand feels warm at night is mostly known for his original slushwave and Uncle Squidz for his indie lofi beats.

On their debut album “上海/香港” (Shanghai / Hong Kong) both artists take us to the neon lit streets of Shanghai and Hong Kong, where rain keeps on falling and falling. The sound can be best described as distant melodies and slow evolving pads that are building up to a true dreampunk slush dream.

The album is released on LP, Cassette, CD and MiniDisc (webshop exclusive!). The album is available now on all streaming platforms and on physical media at the Hiraeth Records Webshop and Bandcamp

Super Jewel Case!

The CD comes in a special case…Could this be the first Super Jewel Case in Vaporwave history? The Super Jewel Case was supposed to be the successor to the standard case; but then streaming happened… time to let it shine again!

You can get the CD also in a Bundle!

The CD comes with an over 20 minutes long bonus track! The CD and all other items have been given a beautiful obi-stirp designed by Jens Ingelse!

This item is currently in production. To not cause any more delay, we decided to release it. We expect it to have shipped out most orders by end of September.

Due to the Covid-19 situation, we cannot promise that every order will reach it’s destination as quickly as before. Many parts of the world are still affected. Because of this in most of the cases we expect around a two week delay. Thank you for understanding our situation.
