Let's Go Home EP by Weave of K.

Weave of K. is back, this time with less circuit bending and more Atari chip goodness.

"Five years since his last EP on the Squad, Weave of K. has crafted five breezy/dreamy ditties from the circuits of the often-underused Atari 2600 (along with a sprinkling of NES sounds)!

"I wanted to keep the EP as simple as I possibly could, just like the Atari 2600 games way back when. The song titles are inspired by places in San Francisco and Oakland that have a reputation with deaths. It may sound dark but really it's no darker than the concepts of a lot of Atari 2600 games. There's a lot of shoot 'em up games and there are a lots of deaths - fortunately for the console, it had a reset switch.""

Pizza Planet EP from (T-T)b

2015 is off to a cracking start here at the Squad - we have a cute four-track EP from (T-T)b! These guys are a fairly new name, but if this release is anything to go by they have a bright future ahead of them.

"It's always fun to release an EP that uses actual/traditional instruments, and (T-T)b blend drums, guitar and dreamy chiptune together to perfect effect. It's like a more blissed-out version of Anamanaguchi. It's like the world melts away into pixels and pastel hues..."

Abinox III by lpower

It's finally here: the third and final installment in the Abinox series! Wow, lpower has really pushed himself this time - this is basically a full hour of atmospheric chiptune that never lets up. Remember you can check out Abinox and Abinox II too, and look out for an announcement on physical copies soon...

"lpower began the Abinox series in 2012 as an experiment in creating a work that crystallised all of his favourite aspects from old video game soundtracks. Abinox II a year later was the progression of this idea, adding more instruments and dealing with lengthier compositions, and Abinox III is now the logical conclusion in this epic trilogy. The tracks are even longer, and at 30 minutes each they represent quite an achievement in composition and narrative. The orchestra of nostalgic sounds has been beefed up even further, spanning a multitude of synths and sound chips too numerous to mention. Seamlessly shifting gears and emotions for its hour-long running time while taking the listener on a tour of sumptuous sounds from years gone by, Abinox III is a truly impressive feat."
