8BC Tracks of the Week (2/1/09-2/7/09)

logoI just realized that not one song I’m about to feature here made last week’s 8bitcollective Top 10 Liked Songs list. This was not intentional. However, the result is a nice new list of tracks that most of you apparently haven’t heard yet. Enjoy these:

ogge“hot water”

Peter Swimm was astounded I had never heard of this guy before. That being said, you now know that I didn’t pick this track based on ogge’s solid reputation. The beat is as hot as the title says the water is. The leads are boiling. Don’t just dip your toe in, DIVE.

exileFaker“existential quantifier”

“First chip track I’ve ever managed to finish.” This chipper took the SOS Band’s advice of “take your time, do it right.” N00bs everywhere: FOLLOW SUIT! Great programming, slick leads.

Maskodling“Studsbolls Trauma”

This is the wackiest DS-10 track I’ve ever heard. And pretty elaborate to boot. This is such a feel-good track the only trauma caused is the blow to your ego once you realize your own DS-10 skillz pale in comparison.

plasticSquirrel – “the haberdashery murders”

This is some visceral shit right here. Reminds me of the time I chugged a few Mickey’s while at a Wolf Eyes show then rode home at 2AM listening to Disco Volante.

486“White Lightning”

Man, everybody really steps it up for their 48 hour challenges, don’t they? My brother-in-law usually has a stash of this particular brand of moonshine and I can’t wait to crank this fucker up and guzzle some of that “powerful stuff. ”

Nods:

Sparkyboy – “Blizzard”

Nintendude – “Burst”

kuryakin – “Rad”

surasshu – “Truth (NES cover version)”

chalices of the past – “Firstfrost”

(edit: the track “Wargames” previously listed is by artist Partick Wolf and was uploaded to 8BC without his permission)

And as always for those of you considering uploading a new track to 8bc, remember these wise words: QUALITY, NOT QUANTITY, SHOULD BE YOUR MAIN OBJECTIVE.
