Kuma’s Quick Shots: Round 10

Posted by

Sup ChipWINners? Welcome back to Quick Shots, the album review column where I take a gander at new releases and throw my fifty cents in on their overall quality. This time around, instead of reviewing albums from a few underdogs in the scene, I’ve taken the time to look over releases from three artists that I first became familiar with because of Chiptunes = WIN! Each of these artists were all featured in ChipWIN Vol. 1 and not only have I loved them all since then, but I’ve seen them continue to grow and change in ways that have made me look at music differently. So without further ado, I’d like for you guys to join me as I take a gander at new music from Lukhash, Whitely, and +Let’s Disinfect!+!

Greetings and salutations, chippies and chappies. Contrary to what Aydan might have you think, I have no radical skateboard moves to teach you. However, I do have a few, as the kids say, “hella dank” tracks to talk about. Instead of beating around the bush with my standard sesquipedalian loquaciousness, I should actually get to reviewing the tracks, instead of derailing by – oh, wait. Let’s just… try that again.

Hey, ChipWINners! We’ve covered more than half of the amazing songs and artists who’ve been featured on Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 4, but we’ve still got quite a ways to go before we wrap up our track-by-track review series of this phenomenal compilation! So far, we’ve seen a venerable collective of chipmusic all-stars from around the globe, but even more talented artists have yet to step up to the challenge that is THE CHIPTUNES = WIN: VOLUME 4 TRACK-BY-TRACK REVIEW WHILE I PROBABLY EAT PIZZA OR SOME OTHER DELICACY. So let’s see what the next five tracks have in store for us!

Welcome back, ChipWINners! Are you enjoying your guided tour of our fourth mainline compilation? I hope so, because now that my dude Wayne is done with his part of the trip, it’s time for me to play captain on the SS Chiptune! So sit back, relax, grab yourself a drink, and put those headphones on, ’cause these next five tracks are some of the most lush, dynamic, and eclectic tracks on the entire album!
