I have a soundcloud that isn’t Slime Girls stuff that I put little things on every so often, check it out~

Pleased to announce the release of 『アニメが悪くない』, “anime is not bad”. Vol. 1!
A chiptune anisong compilation that myself and friends put together, such as Melt Channel, Space Boyfriend, Cyclops Rock and other great artists.

I contributed a song that means a lot to me and has always been a dream to play live and have people mosh and get sweaty to. Please check it out!

Download the compilation, find more information and check out the other artists at:

your music is so cute and so fun and so positive and i love it and your whole aesthetic but what's in the future for slime girls? it feels like it's been a while since vacation wasteland came out and i need more jams for summer 2014~

I don’t want to give any super specifics right now, but there will definitely be a single out this year (at some point) which will lead to a brand new album~ (at some point)

So rest assured, there’s a ton of music coming out in the near future! 

There is also OMORI, which I am doing the soundtrack for, which you’ll be hearing more about in the very very near future

If I wanted to make music like yours, where would I start? I've sort of looked this up online, but it seems so overwhelming @_@ What's your process like? Any tips for noobs? Thanks!

Hi!

Vacation Wasteland was made entirely (barring guitar and drums) with a program called LSDJ which you can find here (its super super cheap): http://www.littlesounddj.com/lsd/
It runs on all models of Game Boy, I use a pair of DMGs (the original big grey bricks) for live shows and recording 

You can put it on a flashcart (which you can then use with a gameboy), which you can buy from various places for about 30-40 dollars, Kitsch Bent is a really good place for things like this and they restock on these carts pretty often: http://store.kitsch-bent.com/product/usb-64m-smart-card

If you don’t want to invest in a flashcart just yet you can run LSDJ through an emulator of which there are TONS.

As far as using LSDJ, there’s a bit of a learning curve but its extremely powerful once you get the hang of it and one of my favorite platforms to make music on. Plus being able to write music wherever you go is really pleasant.

There are plenty of LSDJ tutorials online and you can find .sav files from artists you like here and there, I don’t like the idea of posting the .sav for the whole EP online for everyone to get, but if anyone wants it, just ask and I’d be more than happy to send it if you want to look through a bunch full songs and see how they’re made.

Alternatively, the other program I’ve been using a bunch is Famitracker: http://famitracker.com
Which is free and if you’re familiar with trackers (LSDJ is also a tracker interface) it’s pretty easy to just jump right into. 

As with anything, once you get the basics down there’s so many fun things to try out and when it comes to authentic chiptune there’s so many tricks and methods that you’re bound to discover for yourself or want to learn how to replicate and thats part of the fun!


If anyone ever has any specific questions or needs some advice I’d be more than happy to share what I know! I’m not a fully fledged wizard, but I like to help~

Is there ever going to be a restock on the Vacation Wasteland Cassette? thanks

I just updated the stock, there’s 3 left! 
After that, I’m not sure how long it will be before they are back

spaceboyfriendmusic:

”bug spray (never give up)” [zl−19]

is now available to the universe.

thank you all, so, so much. this is the most special and dear piece of work i have ever made, and i hope if you find yourself listening, you enjoy it, and feel powerful because you are powerful. please keep doing what you do.

『thank you, and farewell, beautiful summer』

Yall owe it to yourselves to listen to Space Boyfriends brand new release, like, immediately. This level of earnesty and emotion is so rarely heard within the realms of chiptune

do you guys have size charts for your shirts?
