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…

Oreo Mini Cheesecakes!

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.

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

The Download on… Cyanide Dansen’s ‘Zenzoo Pop’

Posted by

I saw a comment on the Chiptunes = WIN Facebook group this week that really got me thinking; it was a thread discussing people “ditching” chiptune and moving on to other ways of making music. Somebody noted that lately, LSDj seems to be a contest of technical skill and worried that pushing the software’s limits was taking priority over writing great music. This week, I’ve been listening to an artist who very deliberately keeps a ‘less is more’ attitude towards her music. Released on July 20th, ‘Zenzoo Pop’ is a 5-track EP that fuses cutesy pop melodies with a hint of punk and even industrial flavours.

Chip Mom’s Kitchen #39: Strawberry Icebox Cake

So this is what the weather looks like in Arkansas right now:

Needless to say, I feel absolutely no desire to turn on my oven! That can’t keep the yummies from my tummies. So today, I made a three ingredient desert that requires your fridge instead…

Guérin’s Dissections: ‘Obstreperous’ by Dr. Zilog

Posted by

Dr. Zilog have been making chip metal for a while. They’re one of the oldest acts in the modern scene and have stuck around for a reason. In their latest album, ‘Obstreperous’, they’ve created yet another classic, heavy album full of memorable solos and masterful composition. Join me as I dive into Zilog’s newest offerings.
