I came across Nescapism, by the Electric Witch, on accident. Thinking it was just another 8 bit tribute, I hesitantly gave it a listen. What I found was a mesmerizing rendition of my 8 bit favorites! The sounds that he creates are exactly what I imagined when playing the original games! You can preview the album HERE and if you like it, it is available for only $1.00!
Zac Bentz, the Electric Witch, describes the album below:
“NEScapism is a love-letter to the video games I grew up with. The games whose music meant just as much to me, if not more, as the escapism they provided my isolated imagination. These are the songs that I would let play over and over, ignoring whatever might have been happening on-screen. Letting them loop and spiral outward. I’ve tried to capture that feeling on this album, adding my own inner echos.”
What are your thoughts on the soothing sounds of NEScapism?
