There is a very interesting new site up that I wanted to mention, they are known as Plopbox. I think they explain their site better than I can. So here’s what they say about it.

“Plopbox is a kind of jukebox which plays tunes created in the 80-90 on machines like C64, Atari, Amiga, PC and others. You can browse in the archive and clicking on a tune will play it. New tunes, submitted by the users, are added everyday by our admins.

When you have your account, you can use plopbox to manage your own playlist and choose exactly the tunes you want to hear. You will have access to other playlists and can use filters on these. The applet will play the list you selected and plopbox will behave like a web radio.

We're working on more content to offer you the best oldschool experience.”

Bandit Train has a new song called Battle Field for download at his site. Tanooki Rebirth has a new song on his site to listen to. My Parent’s Favorite Music also has a Minibosses remix on their site for download called Make Sense.
