8-Bit Weapon new album

20120125-064259.jpg

I’ve just be listening to a few tracks from 8-Bit Weapons latest album ‘Bits with Byte’ and so far I’m blown away.

Inspired by classic videogame soundtracks and electronic music from the 70s and 80s, 8 Bit Weapon delivers a sound that is as unique as it is original. Clever melodies, nostalgic atmosphere, and energetic beats create a decidedly modern sound while maintaining a fun, lo-tech aesthetic

Great for playing in the background during your next retro gaming session.

Litening to this made me smile as I can almost pick out some of the sounds that remind me of various computers like the metallic ring of the Amiga bass, blips from the Nintendo Gameboy and NES, SID chip noise and something that makes me think of Robotic Liberation on the VIC-20.

Here’s the track list

2. Galactic Invasion 03:03
3. Apple Core II 01:57
4. The Art of Video Games Anthem 03:12
