Sladerfluous Reviews: ‘FAMILY SWING’ by YMCK

Posted by

Welcome to 2017, ChipWINNERS! What better way to break into the new year than with some quirky chip-swing tunes delivered from their hearts to your ears by none other than the legendary YMCK!

‘FAMILY SWING’ by YMCK is a deliciously unique chip-swing album packed with heart, quirk, and unabashed adorableness. This bright album takes swing and runs with it, folding the classic genre into the chip-sphere with a level of polish that will make you wonder how you’ve never heard music quite like this before.

Check out ‘Glory in my hands…’ and fall in love with a little chip-swing with YMCK!

INCOMING TRANSMISSION


Hey ChipWINNERS!

Today, I finally got the chance to sit down with the man, the myth, the legend; Mr. Brandon L Hood aka “President Hoodie”, the founder of Chiptunes = WIN! Brandon has been helping us not only bring great chiptunes to the chipmusic community, but also moderating our community to be the best that it possibly can be.

Bit by Bit: The Point in Thinking Positively

Posted by
Long time no see, friends!  I apologize for the lack of segments; in a slight irony I’ve been focusing on getting everything in my own little world back in order.  Now that I have, I’ll be alternating each month between these segments and reviews.  Hope you enjoy!

When you have seen enough of the Internet subculture and its effect on the current generations, it is easy to see how people will dive into the catharsis of some of the Internet’s less appealing pastimes.  Antagonistic and addictive, trolling and reflecting other forms of negativity onto the Internet allow catharsis to those in which somehow are (or at least feel) emotionally repressed.  What nobody realizes is the cognitive and emotional toll it takes on them, and how surrounding themselves with such negativity will hinder their viewpoints and actions later.

Are you curious as to what this has to do with music?  After the break, I’ll explain the point in thinking positive, and how it can affect your creativity and productivity.
