Captive Portal – Laughing Turkeys EP December 2015 – KR073

The second track had me cracking up with some crazy frog feelings and then there is a funky one and then a weird one and its xhrist mas as well. Also includes original tracker files.

Tumble & Toast – Knallert Forbudt EP

Laid back instrumental beats mixed with Game Boy twinkles and textures. I wish there was more slow Game Boy music. The third track slaps it down a bit too wide with its big synths and piano riffs but the first two tracks have a great austere groove.

Weekly Treats

You want loads of fucking free chip music? Check out Weekly Treats. It was a bunch of different curators choosing different stuff but now each year is available in single handy downloads. Sure there is probably some naff stuff but most tastes are covered with plenty of different styles represented. 195 traxx. Respect to Andrew for his hard work.

Plain Flavored – Gameboy Braggadocio

I’m not really sure what that title is about. I guess Game Boys can convey a sense of fighting ability, financial wealth and coolness. Beautiful psychedelic beeps and funky chaotic beats.

░▒▓ – ≡/∩

░▒▓ aka 176177178 put out a new release of pops and crackles which he has described as lofi glitchy field recordings. ░▒▓ is probably JM aka Joss Manley aka Josstintimberlake and this is probably not 8bit music.
