YMCK has come to be a name associated with some of the highest quality chipmusic ever produced. Their ‘Family’ albums are by and far a series of the most influential music within the chipscene, and several songs off of their releases have gone viral. Known for their incredible live performances that utilize pixelated visuals, detailed and impressive music videos, as well as lighthearted and impressively composed, jazz-influenced music all combined with Kurihara’s stylistically unique vocals, YMCK has broken the mold with every single release. Now, two years after the release of their last smash hit ‘Family Days’, ‘Family Dancing’ has been released through iTunes for the world to hear. Let’s take a look at some of the tracks from this phenomenal album!

Sup y’all? =) Hoodie here with a special BONUS interview for this month! A Kickstarter for an EXTRAORDINARILY AWESOME project has recently gone live, something that you need to be informed about and given the chance to support. So I took the initiative
and interviewed/enjoyably chatted with/endlessly pestered the creator to learn more about it, and him in general. The project in question is Band Saga, and its creator is the one and only Roger ‘Rekcahdam’ Hicks! Enjoy!

Honest and direct.

Let me begin by cutting straight to the point.  If you’ve not had much experience in the wide world of bourbon whiskey, I have one singular piece of advice for you.  Find your most reputable liquor proprietor, politely ask an employee,
“Excuse me, can you recommend a good bourbon for someone who is just starting to explore?
and prepare your mind for an educational conversation.
