I’m a big fan of Philly’s own ap0c, a talented chiptune artist who creates some seriously awesome tunes using remixed 8-bit sounds. And just a few weeks ago, he released his sophomore album, LISTENCORE Vol. I.
Some details about the album from his Bandcamp:
In his sophomore album “LISTENCORE Vol I”, Ap0c uses Famicom audio to explore the struggle of our inner artists. Waves of crippling self doubt juxtaposed by triumphant victory emanate across all 7 tracks, culminating in a journey across the deep inner subconscious and back to harsh reality of daily life.
This sarcastic, biting, and yet hopeful journey strives to put notes to that feeling of “not being good enough”- for others, and for our greatest critic: ourselves.
Fun Fact: The artwork was whipped up by Philly’s Joey Mariano, the gent who helps put together the fine 8static Festival every year.
The album is available now on Bandcamp for a name your price cost. Toss the guy a couple bucks, and enjoy his rockin’ 8-bit tunes.
