This is an older album but it was only posted to bandcamp about a week and a half ago.  It's about a close to shoegaze that a solo game boy can produce.

This is one of my favorite chiptune artists right now, and I think The Shizz would especially dig as it sounds pretty video game-y. Also a great guy, he's in SoCal and I've been lucky enough to play a couple shows with him in the past two months.

Also, cover #61 has been blowing my mind all morning:

 

Been making my way through these and they're a lot of fun. Is there a place we can find the artist names and who did what? I swear Entry008 in original is TQ-Jam, I just have this feeling.

first of all, funky fm music just really does it for me.  Even if it's something corny like early mariah carey I can get way into the music with the fm bass and keys going on.   Then, there's everything else in this song.  The enigmatic title.  The synth programming brings out all the right emotional responses in me:  leads that remind me of thunderforce (even if the portamento isn't quite as exaggerated), chording synths that remind me of very old and charming genesis osts like super monaco (except somehow they don't sound as flimsy here), and of course a solid bass.  Great original motifs, interesting harmonies, good melody, rhythm.. everything that can make a song great is here!

"NES VST" got updated a few months ago, don't think it was posted. Looks really cool with FamiTracker style envelops. I unfortunately can't get it to work in 64bit host.

What a great effort from my man Anova! Fresh new polyphonies, rhythms, all tied together tastefully through tried and true chordal motifs. He ends each song with a high quality guitar ambience, I would have liked for Daniel to expand more on that, because he is a great math/postrock guitarist. The alternating of a extra half measures after groups of 4 bars gives a renewal of attention grabbing, and ultimately the album's best asset is that even though it is his second effort, his gameboy programming has increased dramatically. Ego Depletion presses Control Alt Delete on your Soul and upgrades it back with terabytes of life meanings.

So jmr mentioned that the Famicompo volume 10 competition was running a few months ago. I just now remembered to check out the results from that. Turns out I was totally right about entry 8 being TQ-Jam. But an unexpected bonus happened as well: Sitting at #5 of 108 original entries is Shnabubula! Gratz to him!

 

Check out the full results
