Music from the Week of August 6, 2023

It looks like I may like a genre called hyperpop. Spotify’s hyperpop playlist has a few artists I already know and enjoy. Discovery ahead. (Update: an entire playlist of hyperpop is too much. I like some hyperpop artists and songs. I don’t like hyperpop as a genre.)

This set by 100 gecs at Boiler Room in L.A. is all. over. the. place. But it’s a lot of fun. Check out 59:00 for a wild taste. And do read the comments. Speaking of 100 gecs, the video Acai playing the 10,000 gecs album on Clone Hero Drums for the first time mesmerized me. Wut.
