BRKfest - three-day chip music festival next week ⊟

Likely the biggest chip music showcase in the Midwest, BRKfest, will return to Cincinnati, OH on July 25-27! The extravaganza will host dozens of bleep bloop artists, including Cheap Dinosaurs, Glomag, Corset Lore, and Chipocrite — see more of the announced acts here. The festival will also offer merch and open mic opportunities.

Though I live in Cincinnati, I somehow managed to never hear about this annual event until last month. Sooooo it’s time time to fix that. I plan to head over to the Chameleon for at least one or two nights — you should too! Click these links for more details about the event and to purchase a pass/shirt. And here’s a BRKfest trailer to get you pumped!

Rainy Day

Brave Wave • Rainblocks

Don’t see many soundtracks to iOS games on Bandcamp, but it’s rare to have an iOS game with a soundtrack by Mega Man composer Manami Matsumae. 

The Rainblocks OST is on Bandcamp now, produced by our friends at Brave Wave, and you should go check it out! All the tracks are available for preview, and you can pay whatever for the album anyway. 

Oh, and check the game out! It’s a really simple puzzler that gets very difficult very quickly, and somewhat redeems the awfulness of slide puzzles by adapting them into something not awful.

Calavera - Gentlemen’s Swing ⊟

(apologies for the musical hiatus, life has been pretty busy!)

Calavera is a Melbourne based musician who has made something particularly unique (in my opinion) with a Game Boy. The EP with the same name as this track is dripping with that swing feel, steady grooves and some unique upbeat melodies the whole way through.

DON'T MISS "Nice to meet you, Fuji-sama", a tune Calavera wrote while visiting Japan and witnessing Mount Fuji 

The Science Wizard (Explodatorium)

Jake Kaufman • Strike the Earth! Shovel Knight Arranged

Two Shovel Knight soundtracks! If you want the original, genuine chiptune steez, you can get the Shovel Knight OST from Bandcamp here. If you want the arranged version with lots of guest artists (including Manami Matsumae remixing Jake “Virt” Kaufman!) that one’s here. The price is right for both: literally any amount of money.

If you want a version of the OST you can play in an NES emulator  – or on an actual NES, should you have a flash cart – you can get the NSF version here. What? Virt, you spoil us.

Oh, and in case you somehow didn’t hear, Shovel Knight is the business.

Pop It

Warning! New Anamanaguchi track approaching! And the sound is quite different from the band’s other releases, but I can’t hate on a new Guchi joint with vocals/vocaloids. For maximum effect, load the song here and smack some balloons around. idk.

The Shortsleeves • Volume 1

The Shortsleeves’ Volume 1 is out! ⊟

I’m still trying to process that I actually met and saw two of my favorite bands (The Shortsleeves and Crying) at Pulsewave last weekend, plus witnessed an absolutely bonkers set from Nordloef. None of it feels real.

Couple that with today’s release of The Shortsleeves’ kickstarted album — in a time when crowdfunded works often turn out disappointing or delayed or abandoned — and it all seems like a lovely dream from a weekend nap, certainly not like a real life Tuesday.

Volume 1 offers classic tracks, new songs, and remixes (from friends like Bit Shifter and Bear & Walrus). You can stream them all online for free, but you should buy it because the album is more than worth the $10 the band is asking for. Unfortunately it does not include Jenn de la Vega’s cover of "Hey, I think you’re really cool."

Sirqueue • Goodbye Wi-Fi DIY

It’s a whole album of music from WarioWare DIY! As a way of sending off the sharing functionality of the DS game creation utility (gone with the rest of Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection on May 20), five artists united to make an album using DIY.

The original plan had been to distribute this compilation exclusively via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and shared Friend Codes, making it available only until the cut-off date of 20th May 2014. Then we realised that would be even more difficult than first expected, and the plan was abandoned. 

All five artists list their friend codes on the Bandcamp page, so you can still have the true hipster experience of hearing this music in its original format. You know what, I was taking the NWC closure in stride until this moment. WarioWare DIY was such a beautiful thing, and so inspiring, that for it to have anything less than 100% of its capabilities is a damn shame.

Thanks to Christian Montoya for the heads up!

Eirik Suhrke • Miyajima

Not long after I finally discovered and posted Brave Wave’s “In Flux” album, the label has released an EP of b-sides! The above is a great chip piece by Eirik “Strotchy” “Spelunky” Suhrke; the $2 6 [sorry! my mistake] (or more; pay what you want) EP also has tracks by Insert Rupee, Andi Bissig, Benjamin Briggs, Souleye, and halc.

Full disclosure: Brave Wave is a big Tiny Cartridge supporter!

Rock

George & Jonathan • George & Jonathan III

Every single time you think you’ve encountered The Best Music and you feel like you’ve been livin’ that Beautiful Lifestyle, George and Jonathan manage to pull out all the stops once again and blind-side you with III (works best in WebGL-capable browsers, Firefox, Chrome, Safari on desktop, iOS Safari seems to have issues).

George and Jonathan have outdone themselves once again like no one else possibly could, the lofi-funkitude of GnJ’s jams damn well better change your life. “Rock” is head-thrashing, rainbow-colored celebration opening up a mosh pit in the middle of some primo funk jams.

You can listen to George and Jonathan’s III on Bandcamp (where you can buy and download too!), SoundCloud and Spotify

We love you forever George and Jonathan!

Ace Attorney Piano album ⊟

Sounds great, if these clips from the recording sessions are any indication! The album, due out April 23, features 19 tracks from the first three Ace Attorney games, because Capcom apparently chooses not to acknowledge the rest of them. Via Siliconera.
