Ubiktune is a musical collective that focuses on chiptunes and videogame sounds and has been kickin' it since 2006. On January 1, Ubiktune's C-jeff released his latest concept album Preschtale on Bandcamp, so you might want to scoot on over and give it a sampling.
Preschtale is some trippy business, drawing influences from progressive rock and metal artists such as Pink Floyd and Dream Theater. It's a seven-track, 40-minute chiptune journey through an alien world, switching from mellow and groovy one second to head-banging and foreboding the next. As a bonus, guitarist Danimal Cannon (Armcannon, Metroid Metal Live) makes a guest appearance.
C-jeff is offering the album for however much you wish to pay for it. How can you pass up that opportunity? If you need just a little more encouragement, I've embedded the second track after the break for your ear canal's pleasure.
