The Unicorn Princess Royally Reviews ‘The Ground’ by Psilodump

Posted by

Happy September & Autumn!

Just released three weeks ago, Psilodump presents to us their newest record, ‘The Ground’. On the whole, this is a wonderful collaboration of artists working together to create a myriad of beautiful tracks. Each composition is distinct in its character, yet they mesh together so well that they flow super fluidly as the album spins through.

‘Atlas’ by FM-84 is too spectacular to ignore.

This is one of those moments where we at Chiptunes = WIN felt compelled to break open our scope to bring an album to the forefront that orbits our main focusing sub-genre because when you hear this incredible collection by Col Bennett (featuring several MIND BLOWING collaborations), you’ll be thankful that we made the exception and brought FM-84’s masterful dreamwave artistry to your attention.

Start your ‘Atlas’ journey with ‘Arcade Summer’, a delightful ambient introduction into FM-84’s 80’s synth dreamwave stylings, but be warned that this is only the tip of one magnificent iceberg…
