Another year, another MAGFest. Ho-hum. Just a bunch of nerds together playing videogames in an overpriced hotel, I don’t get what’s so sp-

GUYS. I’M SO SORRY. Someone locked me in a basement and sent a robot clone to sabotage this article -all in an attempt to make you think that MAGFest SUCKS! DON’T LISTEN TO IT. MAGFEST IS BEST FEST! The person who is Adam Seats and is definitely probably not a robot clone is here once again to give you the rundown on all the great music you missed because you weren’t there/were there but were doing something else/were there but can’t remember because of REASONS.

Chip Mom’s Epic Fails #2: A Tale of Not-So-Epic (Pro)portions

Posted by

So my father, in one of his many professional incarnations, was a chef for a catering company.  He loved to talk about the joys of fresh pasta, and all of my favorite cooking shows laud it just as highly.  So, when Christmas rolled around, I took a leap and asked for the pasta attachment for my Kitchenaid Mixer. Much to my joy it was received!  Now you get to glory in the not-so-glorious first attempt that is a…

The Unicorn Princess Royally Reviews ‘Portalion’ & Interviews Aliceffekt

I am a born procrastinator who works very efficiently with an impending deadline, and maybe even subconsciously use this natural weapon as a way to complete tasks. This tool came in handy today; the past few weeks have been busy and I haven’t had a chance to really listen to a lot of the recent releases that have been coming out, until about 1:00PM on March 23rd.

I came across an artist who I have heard of only in passing, named Aliceffekt, who released an album called ‘Portalion’ on March 15th. After giving it a listen, I made sure none of my peer writers have this album on cue to review this month, and quickly claimed the review as my own.

Chris Considers: ‘Don’t Be Anxious’ by little-scale

Posted by

Last week was downright facemelting here on the ChipWIN blog. It all started with Joe’s review of Danimal Cannon’s shredtacular new progressive chiprock masterpiece ‘Lunaria’, and ended with Glenntai’s curated collection of chipthrash that’s enough to make your ears bleed. Well, it’s freaking Monday again. Time to take things down many notches and focus on something much more ambient in nature. This gives me the opportunity not only to highlight a revered veteran of the chipmusic scene, little-scale (Sebastian Tomczak), but also to showcase just how versatile artists within the chiprealm can be, covering every inch of the musical spectrum. If you’re looking to relax, get lost in deep introspection, and otherwise decompress, then look no further than little-scale’s recently released EP, ‘Don’t Be Anxious’.
