“Never Grow Up” by Euan Lynn
Fast-paced chip punk recorded in the most lo-fi way imaginable (a cassette tape in his bedroom), it embraces every bit of the garage punk aesthetic and I love it. This track is off Euan’s latest EP Never Grow Up Club, the rest of which is as fast-paced and youthfully furious as this.
“Wayfinder” music video by Infinity Shred
I loved this track when we first posted it a few months ago, but now the band formerly known as Starscream has put together a gnar video to go along with it. Keep with the video past the first minute and a half — skateboards forever and ever.
Other chip music I’ve had in my headphones lately:
- Book of Cups by Church Of The Undying Bloop (first 500 downloads free)
- Forgotten Machines by Decktonic (composed with KORG DS10+ on a DSi)
I also can’t get Kendrick Lamar and The Game’s new albums out of iTunes rotation. Why aren’t there chip mixes of “Swimming Pools” and “Ali Bomaye” yet?
Vintage Zelda t-shirt, featuring Link on a skateboard. This design is based on the unreleased The Legend of Zelda: Skateboard of Mystery, in which Link found a magical skateboard that would tell the future of a different character depending on the trick performed. “You busted an ollie! …The shopkeeper will receive a shipment of arrows tomorrow!”
Fingerboarding tricks on Famicom hardware and software. Enjoy some artful arrangements of some guy’s collection of loose and boxed Famicom games, and then watch a tiny skateboard totally grind on it. It’s a whole new paradigm for game display!
I didn’t even realize fingerboarding was a thing. Is it even a thing? These tricks are actually kind of impressive. I wonder if it’s possible to fall off of a fingerboard and skin your knuckle.
The other major discovery out of this thing: Hige Driver, the group (person?) responsible for the music.
Skateboard deck inspired by Square Enix’s The World Ends With You from TheNotoriousSDS at deviantART. Personally, I think this is fabulous, because a) skateboard? really? why the hell not! and b) I love TWEWY like ice cream.
