Noisewaves - Do I Look Like I Want To Play Volleyball?

Coming out with his (their?) first EP, Noisewaves is a neat guitar/drums/NES outfit from my hometown of Grand Rapids, MI. Together we form the West Michigan chiptune scene, though there may be others who keep their work to themselves. Anyway, when I first heard Noisewaves, it was a song called Pioneer Island which sounded a lot like Anamanaguchi. Since that track, the sound has gone a few notches down-tempo, with a lot more of an experimental indie band sort of composition to it. It's a great feel; extremely calming with dramatic builds and explosive outbursts of drums.

Get it!

Get "Noisewaves", the whole release!


  1. This is a fantastic song! Thanks for sharing it.
    Btw, are you not posting embedded song players anymore, or are they just not showing up in my browser?

  2. None of the players have been loading for me either... I always have to listen to the tracks on facebook or the linked sites...

  3. Yeah, I don't know what the deal is! You'll notice the old ones are dead too, it's just Google being rude I think.
