welcome to this week’s satellite cult dispatch. i’m so glad you’re here. i hope the artifacts i present you with will spin you like these gifs until you’re lulled into a hypnotic trance that zaps you into the Halloween vaporverse.
please be aware that the void dive section below contains flashing gifs.
i write and research satellite cult each week because i love it, and it’s important to me that it remains free to read and subscribe. but if you want to give altar offerings for the time and labor i invest, you can support me on Ko-fi.
if you enjoy what you find here, like, share, and consider subscribing to satellite cult.

weirdcore aesthetes online have long found themselves drawn to biblically accurate angels: sprawling winged beasts with no faces but hundred of eyes who have more visually in common with long Furbys than with the rosy-cheeked humanoids who populate Renaissance artwork. this album by Denver-based #xspiltmilk/::, which describes itself as arrhythmic dariacore and sits at the intersection of harsh noise and breakcore, has that quality, sometimes violently heavenly, sometimes submerged beneath a deep, dark all-engulfing sea.
according to k0wne’s Bandcamp recommendations, she reviewed Kero Kero Bonito’s Bonito Generation1 as, simply, “super yummy.” there is also something super yummy about that sinkingfeeling, though it satiates a very different craving. moving from soft ambient noise all the way to harsh depressive breakcore and experimental drum and bass, everything juxtaposed against a candy-colored otakucore coating, this album produces a push and pull between dread and release.
yes, it is breakcore, drum and bass, jungle. the whole umbrella. but this album by kennedy somehow feels just as adjacent to both Modern Baseball and Passion Pit circa 2009. even the style of the album cover calls back to visual hallmarks of both midwestern emo and indie pop of the late 2000s an early 2010s—somehow aggressively Tumblr 2014, but also modern and updated. this is one of the most interesting breakcore releases i’ve heard recently—it’s absolutely eclectic.
this energetic dariacore EP by tfwamirite plunders everywhere from SpongeBob to Yeah Yeah Yeahs and engages in a lethal dose of shitposting with track titles like “sampling where are you now at the same time as sampling REDDIT CORE SAMPLE PACK HARDSTYLE IN FORNITE 3D (joel remix).”

may this classic late-night lofi by COOLSUN 涼日, released through B O G U S // COLLECTIVE, lull you into a sweet, comfortable cocoon of ecco and haze. don’t worry. things will work out (or at least that’s what i’m trying to tell myself, and this album is helping).

Gaming World is a gaming website. really. i promise.
in this Game Boy Color odyssey (playable on desktop or in browser), you can absorb all the charms of the Frasier RPG you never knew you needed. a game by Edward La Barbera, Frasier Fantasy is the incredibly specific throwback you’re looking for.
