It was probably about three in the morning at MAGFest, shortly after we were kicked out of the main concert room following bLiNd's amazing DJ set. As we walked out into the hallway, we heard something incredibly catchy coming from down the hall. Tucked away in a corner was a table with a lone figure, ABSRDST, playing in front of a small and hazy-eyed crowd.
Thanks to the Internets, we were able to track this guy down, and we can certainly say that his music sounds great any time of day. Of particular note is the catchy Sugar Blossom and the Space Cadets album that combines chippy pop melodies with heavy electronic beats. It's a name-your-own-price album, and is certainly worth your attention if you're into retro game music (it's not 8-bit).
