2-25-09 PixelToy

Posted by Sean on February 25, 2009

So we’re back to musical grazing, huh? (“Klingon funeral dirges mashed with bubblegum J-pop and the Crystal Method! My favorite!”)

This one is fairly old, but one I’m glad I’ve gotten back to. I first heard Hong Kong’s PixelToy (Myspace here, site here) on Liz Berg‘s Oct. 18, 2005 show on WFMU. The song I heard, off 2005’s Science of Love, was very upbeat, very electronic and sounded like something off a video game soundtrack. But it turns out that PixelToy’s a bit deeper than just bleeps and bloops.

This one, which YouTube translates as Writing a Poem, appears to be from the opening credits for a movie. Very nice music. Very nice graphics. Very nice overall.
