Kind of Bloop

Kind of Bloop, the 8-bit tribute to Miles Davis commissioned by Andy Baio through Kickstarter, is now available for download for just $5. It’s just great.

I’ll tell you what’s weird about it, though. When I hear the music from an actual old 8-bit game, I can see the game in my mind. Kind of Bloop is so evocative, but yet in some ways so familiar, that it like triggers a like sort of false deja vu, a feeling that I’m just on the cusp of remembering the game to which it went.
