PDF Format EP released on Building Blocks (blocks recordings)


Building Blocks Digital Singles Club #2
PDF Format’s This Is What It’s Like To Feel” EP
Now available for free download!

When you think of 8-bit music you think of torpor-filled teen-bots singing ironic hymns to cocaine and getting parties started, right? Yet, with the same tools PDF Format makes expansive, emotive, electric glam epics that boogie like Sweet, jerk like Devo and jive like turkey. His take on “God Only Knows” drags the boomer chestnut into the uncanny valley in the same way that Devo did with “Satisfaction.” His original, “This is What It’s Like To Feel” could have been arranged by Mecha-Jim Steinman. “We Shall All Eat Krill” could be the finale to a failed 1970s Broadway musical about a foodless dystopia originally derided for its cast being decked out in sequined codpieces, but now given its own 33 1/3 book.

Why wait for future approval? Go to:

  1. firstly, you gotta make it easy for people to contact you guys. There's no email I can readily find so you should fix that pronto. Secondly, this is good, I'm gonna add this blog to my blog-friends list. Thirdly, I'm going to start setting up shows with 8-bit artists soon and I want to be in contact with you guys and know who's good and such. Send me an email, you can find it on my little profile page, lets synergize or some shit.
