    the late night city aesthetic

    Still need to do my long-planned "unquiet storm" mix of obscure records with this vibe, e.g.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTmZMILujrs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zk21ACGy0Os https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kq-AfBNK14s

    Schmaltzcore

    The vinyl revival has flooded a generation of teenage bedrooms with copies of "Rumours" and now we're reaping the whirlwind.
