Chip Mom’s Kitchen #40: Oreo Mini Cheesecakes

Posted by

Every once in a while the infernal notification machine that is Facebook throws something worth while at me gives me an idea that temporarily justifies its continued ruinous existence.

What’s this? A delectable delite that I wanted to remember from forever ago? Thanks, Zucc, you actually did something right for a change! Time to make some…

Guérin’s Dissections: ‘Jumper’ by Foxx + [BONUS] ‘solo’ by Je Mappelle

Posted by

Sometimes, you just need a good album to play in the background of your daily tasks. Sometimes you need a lowekey song to just relax in bed with. Sometimes you need to listen to ‘Jumper’ by Foxx. His style has always been some brand of chill with a few hectic songs thrown in for good measure, but this album turns the dimmers low and lights the fireplace for you to stretch out and unwind to. Let’s just sit and chat for a bit about this adorable album.

Progression: Music Theory 104 – Voicings, Voice Leading, and Counterpoint

Posted by

Hey dudes and dudettes,

Tuberz here with another installment in the series of articles centered around the understanding and application of music theory. I took last month off to look over the brand new Fearofdark album (and *SPOILERS* it’s a banger */SPOILERS*) but it’s given me a fair amount of time to get together an idea of what I’m going to cover today. Last article I covered extended chords like sevenths and the multiple ways you can build these chords using intervals and simple counting schemes. It is highly recommended that you read through my previous articles before venturing into this one, as it’s gonna get heckers (Adjective: frantic af). This article is going to be all about taking our chords that we’ve set and making them flow smoothly, or not depending on circumstance, as well as notes in our melody and counter-melody flowing smoothly.

Let’s jam.

Ah yes. More of that prehistoric paper for me to write my hexadecimal microsoft excel tunes on

The Unicorn Princess Royally Reviews ‘Swim’ by Laser Life

Posted by

Happy August, folks!

Shortly after this post becomes published, August will come to a close, and I will be taking September off to wrap up some work of my own. Before I go on my short break, I wanted to shape everyones’ attention towards a synthwave release by an artist that I found via the ChipWINdex (a great resource brought to you by ChipWIN folks full of relevant releases that you’ll most likely adore).  I present to you: Laser Life, and their album, ‘Swim’.

Before I even hit ‘play’ on track one, I could tell an overload of care went into this indie release. Laser Life has a memorable logo that is both unique and simple, and the album art (created by Everything Studio) is intensely thought provoking: It gives off a sense of silent surroundings but loud thoughts, and transporting oneself to someplace else.

Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 6 [Tracks 11-20]

Posted by

Welcome to the second round of track reviews for Volume 6! I’ll be taking you through some of the best that this Volume has to offer. I didn’t know that by choosing this review date I’d get to talk about YZYX, Kubbi, Vince Kaichan, Starving GOGO (whom I’ve previously reviewed), and my good friend and collaborator Auxcide, but I’ll just consider myself lucky. I’m glad I sat this year out to witness the awesome that is Volume 6. This should be fun. ;3
