Falling for a Square - "XO"

Soft chiptune artist Falling for a Square presents "XO", a quiet alternative to all the loud and obnoxious GameBoy music so often overused today. There are nine tracks of gentle chip music, four of which include soft, vocoded lyrics. The artist is at his best in the tracks with vocals, especially in the touching second track "Compute for You", my personal favorite.

The album was created with the Nanoloop application for the iPhone along with a vocorder for the lyrical tracks. Listen/download for free here:

This clever artist also has a new album, "Quiet Songs for Computer People", coming in September. You can visit his official site here:
