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")!
Includes unlimited streaming of Chipsurf Pipeline
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
Mr. Transistor is the 7th finished song off our forthcoming album, Chipsurf Pipeline. Though the chippy sounds are dominated by the 2A03, this song features a bit more influence from the GameBoy than previous songs. The voice in the beginning and the chip-leads at Tim’s favorite break are from our modded DMG-001 GameBoy running LSDJ.
It is also our first foray into 8-bit glitch type sounds. As a result, the sound is a bit more mechanized. In fact, originally it reminded us of The Factory in Final Fantasy VI a bit with a very surfy twist of course. It perhaps tells less of a story than our other songs. It is more of an anthem. Mr. Transistor’s anthem, in fact. A robot focused on taking over the world one switch at a time…
