Full title: "Where Do We Get These Placebos?"

Good lord, more 8-bit in the NGADM. I hope you're not bored of it (I'm not). Was contemplating doing vocals since I wrote some lyrics but I didn't like how they were flowing and it was too difficult for me to balance the vocal melody with the other melodies so I'll save the words for later. Goes a bit more moody around the 3:00 mark, hope everyone enjoys the change of pace and the eventual tying together of thematic motifs and what-not!

As with all my other recent 8-bit stuff, this was made with a single game boy running LSDJ. Got another cart coming so perhaps some 2xLSDJ stuff is coming along in the future.

This on loop + full volume = happy spoydermon :D


I hope my ears won't bleed of continuous listening, because I will listen for hours!

Love it!

I'll definitely think of this next time I have to take medicine!

Takes Skills

I'm not usualy a fan of 8-bit... but this is just amazing. You've got a great progression here :3 things never stay the same for too long. And the melodies seem like they're taken right out of a retro game... except better. You know what i mean? ;D Dude you gotz skills. Il be sure to keep posted!

this fits everything

I wanted to make love to this song but i ended up playing a Flash game on mute and just played this song for 6 hours
