Rhyphte Reviews: ‘General Musings’ by cactus.

Posted by

Well, this is probably the last you’ll be hearing from me for a minute, folks. Got some IRL adventures to sort out before I can pursue my hobbies in the same way again. So let me kick off the review portion of this announcement with the revelation that cactus. is from Melbourne! Crazy to me since I was born there and had no idea (that cactus. resides there—pretty sure I know where I was born)! There’s so much talent in the southern hemisphere and the list of Aussie musicians that I am aware of grows longer day by day!

Well, you know, honestly that’s quite an easy assumption to make – truth be told, we WERE all on sensory overload, and I highly doubt that any one of us there remembers everything. But that’s why we’ve got the whole crew working on this! I made sure to check with everyone from our group who was there, as well as a few queries to the main Facebook page, so this should be about as complete as anyone could reasonably expect. We here at Zombocon the Chiptunes = Win Hivemind aim to bring you all of your geeky needs in the easiest and most complete format. That being said, this post is going to run a little long, so I’m going to put all the real meat under the jump. (more…)
