Chiptune artist Brendan Becker, aka Inverse Phase, contacted us to let us know that he is releasing Pretty Eight Machine — his chiptune tribute to Nine Inch Nails — on vinyl.
The album was originally released in 2012, and has proven to be Becker’s most popular release.

kill me please?
I absolutely love this. Excellent job!
Should release it on cartridge.
LOL – Perfect Name! XD
dude that album came out fooooorever ago – crazy that it is just now getting some notoriety
pretty late machine
can’t help thinking how perfect it would sound with Reznor’s actual vocal impulses vocoded into the lead synth lines (8bit compressing the result for good measure)
“I was all above BIT,
now I’m down in BIT!!!”
