♫♪  Disasterpeace - “Counter of the Cumulus”

Chiptune music has become a bit like death metal in the 90s. It’s subculture is vast and constantly expanding, but increasingly ignored by most everyone else. We’ll just have to wait 10 years for a heralded renaissance in the form of 8-bit folk-drone. In the meantime, here’s a track from chiptune artist Disasterpeace’s new album, out now on Pause Records. This one starts a bit frantically, cramming notes into every corner, only to halt entirely at the 2:50 mark, rebooting with beautiful melodic simplicity that re-frames the preceding two minutes in the best way possible.
