Kuma’s Quick Shots: Round 17

Posted by

Hey, ChipWINners! Welcome back to Quick Shots, the album review column in which I break down some of the latest albums the scene has to offer then give a numerical tl;dr to help you determine if they’re worth your time.  For this month’s edition, I have two highly intriguing records that are more subdued than anything I’ve reviewed this year.  One is a short debut EP from an artist best known for his illustrations on tumblr and Youtube. The other is from a musician that combines traditional instrumentation and stirring vocals to craft somber, heartfelt folk music.  Both offer work that’s rather converse for the time of year, as introspection is not often an emotion associated with the summer.  This divergence from the norm, however, is what made me check them out, and I think you’ll find yourself wanting to, as well, as I was quite surprised with what I found.  Let’s not waste any more time.  Sit back, relax, and join me as I take the time to review music from newcomers Rod-Scorpion and Three-Year Day Job.

Sup y’all? =) President Hoodie here with the first of my beer and chiptune review columns in quite some time! I know, I know; you’re all wondering, “Brandon, what in the hell made you think to knock the dust off that ol’ thing and bring it back?” In a few words:

Shitty Miller Lite and Bud Melvin

Why Miller Lite? Who cares. It sucks (ratebeer.com actually gives it a zero lol).

The lengths I go to for chiptune journalism....
