My new album “Robots. Lasers. Awesome.” is now out on iTunes, which is very exciting and, well, awesome. You can preview tracks and purchase the full album or individual tunes by hitting the button below to jump to the album page on iTunes. Very cool. This latest release kicks things up a notch from my e.p. “The Beacon” without losing the similar vibe and tone. Most of the songs were written with LSDJ on an old school Game Boy (DMG) and I also play guitar over all of those good blips, thumps, and bleeps. If you enjoyed The Beacon, you should dig this too.
It’s here! My new album is wrapped up, and you can buy it as a digital download over at CDBaby right this very second. “Robots. Lasers. Awesome.” is a rocking collection of indie tunes crafted with guitar, LSDJ, and an original DMG Game Boy system. The album will soon be up for sale on iTunes and other distributors shortly, but you can nab this 9-song album of rocking chip music for $8.99 right now. Feel free to tweet, facebook, write a review, and spread the love if you dig it. Thanks for the support! Anyone interested in doing a review can get in touch for a review copy.
Check it out HERE on CD Baby. And you can stream the first track, Doomlaser, for free down below:
I’ll be releasing a new album of Game Boy rock stuff very soon, called “Robots. Lasers. Awesome.” I’m currently waiting for the album to be available for digital purchase via iTunes and other online distributors. In the meantime, here’s a super rocking track off the CD to stream online. Like most of the tunes on the album, this was made with an old-school original Game Boy, LSDJ, and guitar. Enjoy!
Ok, I’ve been “chipping” away at writing and recording some new 8-bit indie rock tunes using my old school Game Boy DMG, LSDJ, and my trusty old six string. I’ve got three new tunes recorded at the moment for what will be my next full album, and I’m posting this here for regular readers to check out, download, and provide feedback on. These tunes don’t have names yet, they’re not necessarily the final mixes, and they’re simply the first pass at recording and mixing the tunes. I’d love to get some feedback on these few songs, particularly in how they contrast to the six songs on The Beacon e.p. (which you can still download for free, by the way, but I do like $3 donations for the effort). In any event, here are the three new songs for you to check out and critique:
Most folks who know me from around these parts are probably only familiar with my writing and video game-related work. Prior to making a go of being a writer, I spent many years as a musician playing in bands, putting out albums, doing shows, touring, etc. I don’t do much of that anymore, but I recently got back into writing and recording tunes while doing research and interviews for Geek Beat Manifesto. While exploring the ins and outs of LSDJ and Nanoloop, I also dusted off a few old guitars and started playing. Happy with the sounds I was making, I sat down and started recording everything. The result is my first instrumental 8-bit indie album, The Beacon, which I’m releasing today through my website as a free download. You can freely download all six tracks over at the album’s page here. If you enjoy the music, please consider making a $3 Paypal donation via the button found underneath the download links to help support future albums I’ll be writing and releasing. Please feel free to pass around the linkage and spread the word. Thanks for listening.
