Arguably the best music video of the year so far, in my opinion. 1:14 = ouch! Not quite sure if it tops Lady Gaga’s Telephone, though.

Following the re-release and remasters of all The Beatles’ albums, and The Beatles: Rock Band, comes WANNA HLD YR HANDHELD, VOL.1 by the 8-Bit Operators:

Almost 2 full years in the making, the 8-Bit Operators’ “Wanna Hld Yr Handheld, Vol. 1” Beatles tribute focuses on the glorious avant-garde and electronic side of the Fab 4 with over 20 of the biggest international names in 8-bit chip music, all utilizing the hardware of re-tooled, classic Game Boys, Ataris, Nintendo Entertainment Systems, circuit-bent toys, Commodore 64s and Apple II computers.

It’s pretty good, with my favourite track being the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. You can listen to it via the site, or you can pay fro the download HERE.

If you’ve been a regular listener to any podcast starring freelance games journalist Robert Ashley (GFW Radio, A Life Well Wasted) then you are probably aware of his band – I Come To Shanghai – formed with his friend, Sam Frigard. Their debut album was released a few months back on their website as a free download, “name your price” download and a hard copy for $10 – the option I went for. I won’t pretend to be  a music buff or anything, all I’ll say is that their music is some pretty decent psychedelic pop/soft rock. My favourites out of the ten tracks are; “Pass the Time” with it’s simple yet hypnotic beat, the delicate piano melody in “I Watch You Sleep” and the muffled drums of “Salvation is the Country”. While perhaps too varied and disjointed at times, it’s a good album and worth checking out.
