RIYL: Radiohead, Chiptune, Video Game Soundtracks
Label: Unfortunateface Records
Often deleted on Youtube as quickly as it was uploaded, the legendary chiptune cover album known as 8-Bit Computer is finally getting a high-quality release¬†on vinyl.¬† Confused?¬† Apathetic?¬† Flippant?¬† Your feelings matter not.¬† Arguably the best album of the 90s, Radiohead’s magnum opus on alienation in the rapidly-growing computer age makes so much sense¬†in the scope of 8-bit music that it’s practically conceptual art.
Unfortunateface Records is a brand new label from the brain behind the notorious video game soundtrack label Moonshake Records.¬† The big difference here is that this is an officially-licensed release.¬† I’d get to ordering this¬†NOW.¬† Among Radiohead fans, Moonshake fans, chiptune fans and avid gamers, 500 copies is a microscopic amount¬†to go around.¬† I doubt these will make it through the week, and TRUST me when I say that once it’s sold out, you won’t be able to find a copy for less than $200.¬† Don’t sleep.
hand numbered, edition of 500, one per person please
