It’s about time I posted this.

About a month ago, I was shocked, and honored, to receive a message from my awesome friend Chipocrite, the widely-known chiptune musician, requesting that I create the casing and CD art for his newest album release, Wordplay. After hours of intensive lineart and pixels and vectoring, I present to the internet a breakdown of the album’s visuals.

1. Front Cover
2. Inside Left (featuring a playable word search)
3. Inside Right
4. Back Cover (blank space on the bottom right intended for UPC)
5. CD
6. Product shot (featuring my hobo gloves)

(Spine not featured due to Tumblr image jankiness.)

I am immensely proud, and grateful, that he approached me to create this. It’s been an honor and a privilege to have been a part of making this whole thing possible for my immensely talented friend.

Crying’s new double EP is out!

There’s a year-old Youtube video of Crying performing in what looks like a Baltimore basement. You can barely hear lead singer Elaiza Santos in it, her voice drowned out by Game Boy chirps and other instruments*. I doubt anyone has played this video as many times as I have — I’ve spent at least two entire afternoons at work with the live set looping nonstop in a background browser tab, tapping my feet and bobbing my head to the music while immersed in HTML and spreadsheets.

I listened to it so much partly because I played through last year’s amazing but super-short EP a million times, and this was a different way to hear those songs in a new way. But I also kept reloading because there are a few unreleased tracks in the set, and even though the recording isn’t clean by any definition and Elaiza’s vocals are too garbled to make out, you can still tell these songs are just so. damn. good. Like, jams just waiting to be released and claimed. I wouldn’t even let the video fade out in its last seconds before jumping back to that buried tab and hitting replay again.

You could say the double EP has been much anticipated around these parts. You could also stream the entire thing for free after the break:
