New Music Critique: HYPERLAMB

Production 8

An illustrator and self-described “audio-holic,” HYPERLAMB dedicates this project strictly to vintage videogame sounds and it can, at times, be pleasing and entertain- ing. The artist strives to inject interesting elements into each theme, such as the underlying Latin flavor in “Volcanica” and “Galatea.” Catchiest of the bunch might be “Halika” with its maddeningly catchy hi-pitched “female voice” contrasted with bold and brassy synths that barge in from time to time. At the end of the day, however, restricting one’s sonic palette to 8-bit sounds proves to be a challenge, especially when crafting pieces as lengthy as 6 or 7 minutes. Shorter run times of 3 minutes might be more satisfying to the listener.
