Weezer - The Second 8-bit Album!

Back in the summer of 2009 was when we released the first 8-bit Weezer tribute, easily our most popular release ever - we got over 10,000 downloads in the first few days and had to buy more bandwidth to accommodate demand! We've heard that many people became chiptune fans (and artists) through this release and Rivers Cuomo even spoke about it in an interview. Well we've often toyed with the idea of doing an update so seven years on and a few nudges of encouragement later we finally got around to it.

Featuring a who's who of chip music in 2016 and an update on the artwork from David Mauro, we feel we've maintained the quality and feel of the original, maybe even bettered it... Well, what are you waiting for? Check it out!

"It's been seven years since the original so we thought it was time for an update - here's our second tribute to those nerds in Weezer! Featuring all sorts of songs, from the band's biggest hits to obscure rarities, recreated using sound chips from old school video game consoles.

Thanks to Rivers Cuomo/Weezer (and The Rentals and Scott Murphy)."

NESMETAL returns with Dead Lights and Dark Towers

It's been over four years since NESMETAL's last release, but during that time he's been working hard on this album, and it's definitely been worth the wait.

"Dead Lights and Dark Towers is a concept album of sorts detailing my journey into brokenness. Fear and hopelessness. Doubt. Bitter vengeance and despair, and my discovery of just how deeply rooted into my being those things had become over more than a decade. However, it is also a testament to an unrelenting Love, that was (and is still), always patiently waiting. Always searching me out. Even through the depths of my own darkness, always loving me. We all carry some kind of brokenness inside, in some way or another... and Love is always calling out to us."

polybius by kriegsmammut

Our newest release is something a little more cryptic for you - polybius by kriegsmammut. There's little melody to behold here, rather a dark journey into the hidden recesses of your dustiest game carts...

"Scrabbling around at the bottom of the bargain bin your hand is drawn to a tattered box that looks like it's seen better days. The box art is unsettling but there's something oddly hypnotic as you clutch it in both hands and walk towards the checkout to make the purchase. On the way home you break out into a jog, and once inside you run to the lounge and slam the cartridge into the console. The game loads as you bathe in a flashing neon CRT glow, but as soon as you push START an unasy feeling comes over you and the light bulb above you switches itself off. A cacophony of creatures seem to cry out from the circuits of the console, as polybius draws you closer and closer to the TV screen..."
