The online netlabel II (pronounced "pause") has kicked off their official launch! Check out the press release, then go download the new tunes!
"II is dedicated to bringing you the best in 8-bit and other forms of video game influenced original music.
On this the day of our launch, we’re announcing two brand new releases:
A story untold in the times of the Warring Nations. This is the narrative of Neutralite, a young hero chosen by elders of Neutral Town to protect their village from the unfolding conflict between the Plaid and Argyle nations prominent in Atebite and the Warring Nations.
A relentless collection of most of Norrin’s prolific 8-bit work to date, including the infamous 18-minute super medley “Unfinished Symphony , the City Smasher collection, and a handful of brand new chips. Norrin Radd’s first full length release throws the verse/chorus system out the window in favor of a non-stop whirlwind of ever changing melodies and harmonies. These meticulously crafted songs move at a swift pace and demand multiple listens to fully understand and hear all of the intertwining melodies."
Also announced, coming soon to II are another album from Disasterpeace titled Level, as well as an album pairing the amazing musicians Temp Sound Solutions and Alex Mauer on the album Blast Portable!
