about

After Leaaves’ long-form ambient releases with labels such as A Giant Fern, Phinery, and Hylé Tapes, Wow This Beard Is Really Great (I’m Glad I Grew It) (Tymbal Tapes, September 2017) is nothing if not a departure from straight-to-Bandcamp composer / producer Nate Wagner’s usual fare. Comprised entirely of samples from Old Spice television commercials arranged in an avant-garde tale of individualism and isolation, Wow This Beard…strikes at the dilemma at the core of vaporwave – whether an art form so tangled up with consumer culture can truly critique it.

You’re about to get zaaaaaped!
It will blow your mind right in front of your face!
Double Sun power!

You smell like outdoor fresh!
You smell like power
Yeah, I do!

It sure smells good in here
But then it gets too cold
So it makes another Sun

Where am I?
What happened to me?
I don’t know. I’m not a doctor.
What a powerful mistake I’ve made.

Wait.
We sure had a lot of fun times together, didn’t we?
Remember that time in the amusement park?
It was the best day of my life.
I’m sorry.
