For those in the San Francisco area that did not attend crashfaster‘s album release party last night, you failed. The album was not only performed (amazingly well), it was given away as a free download. I can honestly say that before crashfaster, I never felt that connected to 8bit music, but as was stated on the event info, crashfaster has “[evolved] from a gameboy-wielding solo act into a snarling, four-bodied electro-rock monster”. Their shit is heavy. I promise to write a much more poetic review on the album, but in the meantime, check out their video for “Beacon”.
P.S If you’re wondering why their name isn’t capitalized, it wasn’t on their main page and I feel this is probably an artistic choice. You might not know this (or really care to) but silverchair also never capitalized their name.
