bump for visibility! this starts TOMORROW!

Thanks, both of you.

I just got a chunk of the band's copies of the EP in the mail last week. I'm going to try to bring a stash of them to 8static Fest next week, so if anyone wants to pick one up there and save the shipping, let me know!

No one else has made a thread so I figured I might as well.

Back in 2016, Marshall Art was invited to play the chipspace stage at MAGFest. For that show, we invited our friend and past collaborator Cory Johnson to join us (partially as an excuse to finally see and hear some of his music played live.) We collaboratively re-arranged some vgm covers from our back catalogs for NES and two guitars, and crafted a new cover specifically for that show.
A year later, it seemed an aweful shame to just let these arrangements sit unreleased. So, this spring we polished them up, recorded new parts, and with the help of our new friends at The Yetee had them pressed to 10" vinyl. It's been a long process getting these ready, but we're happy to finally have them available and very proud of the end product!

Endless thanks to Michael for the mastering; Ami for the live photo; Mike, Marc, and Drew at The Yetee; and Sebastian at Materia Collective for making this release happen!

Let chiptune progressive rock duo Marshall Art and post-rock guru Cory Johnson take you on a remarkable journey through time with this video game arrangement EP.

The Timeline EP features music from the Legend of Zelda series, Earthbound, Chrono Trigger, and Undertale. Born out of a live collaboration at MAGFest 2016, these four songs have been rearranged, combining authentic NES hardware and effects-laden electric guitar to form chiptune rock epics unlike anything else out there!

Fairy Fountain [from The Legend of Zelda]
But You’re Still Hungry [“Ruined World” from Chrono Trigger]
Towns 1 (Hello World) [“Onett” from Earthbound]
MGLV: The Easiest Enemy [“Megalovania” from Undertale]

10” black with colored splatter vinyl (45 RPM) with full color label and jacket. Album artwork by Drew Wise and photography by Ami Moregore.

FYI it's no longer marked as sold out / unavailable on RetroUSB, so you should be able to order a new one direct from them: http://www.retrousb.com/product_info.ph … ucts_id=34

I've been using this for the past few Marshall Art tracks. The groove settings function alone makes it worth switching over to.

Good question. Maybe we haven't done enough to promote ourselves within the chip community? *shrug*
Either way, glad you've heard us now!

Today is Marshall Art's fifth anniversary of being a band! To commemorate this, we've gathered up all of the covers we've recorded in the past five years and collected them into a single album. If you've ever wanted to hear Ecco The Dolphin music arranged like a Pink Floyd song (with chiptunes), or Chrono Trigger with elements of Deftones (and chiptunes) thrown in, then we've got the album for you.

We've also made a short run of cassette tapes! Each of the 25 copies is individually dubbed onto a different color cassette. The tapes are hand-stamped using custom laser cut wood stamps. The j-cards are all individually painted in color schemes and patterns inspired by the songs on the album. The tapes are housed in orange and black swirl/splatter painted cases. Grab them from our bandcamp store: https://marshallart.bandcamp.com/merch

https://marshallart.bandcamp.com/track/marshall-art is 19:18. It's made up of distinct parts which could be their own songs (and some of them have been performed live that way) but it was conceived and written as a "suite" in five* movements.  There are some common motifs running through the parts which help tie it all together.

*it was originally 6 parts, but we dropped one while we were finishing up the album. It became The Lost Art, which, if you're clever with an audio editor, can be seamlessly spliced on to the end of the suite and serves as an alternative "bad ending" to our album.

Ubiktune would be the one I'd go to; they released my band's album last year and there's no other label I'd have rather it be on... unless, like, they were to fund a vinyl pressing for us... tongue
I'll nudge c-jeff for you.

I've got a Genesis Model 3 (NTSC) + Flash Cart + Arduino Uno but little-to-no experience with writing my own music for that platform.  What can I do to help?

Cool concept! I will be in touch about contributing a song from Marshall Art.
