  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    This is the black-vinyl version of our first ever record! It is a 7" single which includes specially mixed and mastered versions of Tsunami Gaiden and The Genesis Machine. It comes with a sticker (while supplies last) and inner and outer plastic sleeves.

    It also includes a download code to download digital records of Tim's very own 7" complete even with a few pops and clicks for an authentic feel. If you can't play the 7" directly, this is the next best thing!

    Huge thanks to the fans that helped us get here via our Kickstarter campaign! You have our never-ending support (and hope you enjoy the colored signed version of the 7")!

about

Yakuza is one of the darker songs off the album but one that we find hauntingly catchy. It is, so far, the only song on the album in 3/4 time and that uses the NES, OPL3, and SID chips within the song. The SID and OPL3 sounds were from a SammichSID and SammichFM respectively.

We wanted to include the GameBoy but when we first started writing the song we didn’t have all the stuff needed to make and record music on it and found that it didn’t sound quite right (we were trying to shoehorn it in and it just didn’t work).

The bells at the end were recorded on a toy bell piano and, in fact, that's where the song actually began. Tremolo was also used, which is, of course, a staple of surf.

Mastering Yakuza was interesting because 95% of the mix just fell into place. The tiny details are what was so time consuming, but it was well worth it as it is our best mixed song to date.
