ChipWIN-tern Spotlight: ‘PLAYROOM VOL 6’ from Toy Company

Posted by

It’s time to turn the spotlight this month to the far frozen northlands of Canada – Toy Company has put out volume six of its compilation series and let me tell you, if you’re not already sitting down to prepare yourself for this I’m going to need you to do so. I’d try to use modern parlance and say things like “this album slaps, my guy” or “this album is full of bangers” but I’m officially old enough to be out of touch with modern slang, let alone to know if what I consider modern slang actually is or if it’s already old by the time it reaches my ears. But look – sit down, put your overpriced headphones on and get ready for a ride.

Chip Bit Sid Takes on: Various Artists – The Great Australian Barbecue Bash

Hello! It’s my first review of the year so I thought I’d begin with a compilation straight from down under. Released on 18th January, ‘The Great Australian Barbecue Bash’ compilation is the first of its kind featuring an all aussie line up with all the artists, covering an fellow artist from the country. It’s a fantastic line up, with prolific artists such as Ctrix, Tomfoolery and The Family Jewellery, Calavera, and many more!

Aydan Appreciates: ‘sketchbook vol #1: 12-17’ by Slime Girls

Posted by

Slime Girls’ ‘Vacation Wasteland EP’ was one of the first albums I listened to when I was just getting into chipmusic, and it’s stuck with me for a really long time. Every once in a while, I listen to this classic and reminisce on the events five years ago that ended with my current involvement in the ChipWIN community as a writer and occasional musician. It really has quite a special place in my heart. So, when I saw that Slime Girls had just released a compilation of unfinished works titled ‘sketchbook vol #1: 12-17’, I jumped at the chance to give it a listen. I fell in love with a number of tracks on this enormous 23-track treasure trove, and I’m happy to share with you the ones I enjoyed the most today.
