There is a moment in the opener Timecop1983’s Waves EP that I swear I can hear the progression of the genre as a whole. Not every artist has to strive for progression within a genre. A lot of artists probably shouldn’t. Because NRW concerns itself so much with music that looks so often to the past, it is particularly refreshing to hear something with an eye toward the future. It prevents this whole musical style and aesthetic from going stale.
