Rad Music // 8-Bit Angles by The Necoism

with 2 comments

The Necoism is a name that has been mentioned on this blog before. He is a producer who makes the absolute finest 8-bit remixes of my indefinitely favorite band, The Strokes. After admiring his remixes of The Strokes and Julian Casablancas’ solo work, Phrazes For The Young, I followed The Necoism on YouTube like a hawk to make sure that if he posted any 8-bit remixes that tickled my fancy, I’d know about them. And boy did he!

Although his YouTube account only has two of the ten songs – not to mention that nice little medley – from The Strokes’ latest album, Angles, I have for you the entire album in 8-bit glory! Lucky you, right?! I don’t know why he took down the rest of the album, but I luckily grabbed all the full songs before he did.

So here you go Strokes fans – 8-bit Angles remixed by The Necoism.

Rad Art // Title Scream

leave a comment »

Title Scream is a nice little website dedicated to cataloging the title screens of 8-bit and 16-bit video games of yesteryear. I’m not sure about you, but I can never get enough video game nostalgia. Seriously though, this is just too rad.

If you so desire, you can follow Title Scream on Twitter and Facebook.

Be Rad. Enjoy.

Rad Music // Goldfish – We Come Together

with 2 comments

Two things I can not go a day without are upbeat music and video games. So, when these two things are combined, really, I struggle to avoid them.

Here is where Goldfish comes in.

Goldfish are a duo, comprised of Dom Peters and David Poole, out of South Africa, who have both been playing music since the tender age of six. Their most recent endeavor is the amazing video for their song, “We Come Together (feat. Sakhile Moleshe).” The video is jam packed with a myriad video game character and pop culture references all stylized in that timeless video game art form: 8-bit. I’ve watched it a few times and seem to find someone or something new each time. It’s a really rad video! The video is one thing, but the song is equally as rad. A mix of styles, Goldfish really let their South African souls come out with notable influences of jazz, samba, and electronic music reaching the surface of eager eardrums. The song skims along the line of cheezy, but it is all too enjoyable to admit – I can definitely imagine hearing this song on the radio.

So sit back, watch this 8-bit video and rock out. Grab the extended version of “We Come Together” after the video so you can enjoy this song further. You won’t be disappointed.

Super Mario Bros. 3 is arguably one of the best 8-bit video games ever designed.
