I’ve been carrying my Gameboy with me everywhere lately, working on some new chiptune tracks using Nanoloop 1. I love the new tracks I’ve been working on and even started a couple covers of old Sebadoh songs.
Yeah, I know it’s random that I’m working on chiptune covers of Sebadoh songs, but deal with it. Anyways, I’m not sure what will happen, but hopefully I’ll sit down and record a bunch of the new original tracks and release them as an EP or something. Here’s one of my favorites so far:
I’ve been cranking out a bunch of songs lately, on both acoustic and electronic devices. It’s been a blast to be diving into music again. Most of the electronic tunes I’ve been working on were intended to be used for our Sweet Ride video game (which is still in the works), but I’ve already got more than I need for that. So maybe these will appear somewhere else. These tunes are created with hard hitting drums, lots of bass, lo-fi synths, and acoustic toy samples. Here are a few previews of those new tracks:
Bonus, today is #808day (named after the famous 808 drum machine, known for it’s low tuned kickdrum). So it’s a perfect day to share these tracks.
My buddy Greg Cohen recently published this video from his candy shop, Lofty Pursuits, in Tallahassee, Florida. This video shows a montage of melting candy mixed with one or two of my own chiptune songs. The results are oddly satisfying.
Bandcamp announced they are donating their cut of album sales to the ACLU for the day (2/3/17). In solidarity, I’m donating 100% of my album sales on Bandcamp to the ACLU too. This will be for any sales between now and Monday morning.
