From videogame orchestra’s Castlevania-esque remake of Island in the Sun, to nordloef’s euro-chip-disco remix of Buddy Holly, to Anamanaguchi, Tugboat and Bit Shifter’s typically excellent showings, the awesomeness of Pterodactyl Squad’s just-released 8-bit Weezer cover compilation album basically speaks for itself.

The tracklist:

1. Island In The Sun (Belmont’s Revisal) – videogame orchestra
2. Holiday – Anamanaguchi
3. El Scorcho – Tugboat
4. The World Has Turned And Left Me Here – Bit Shifter
5. You Won’t Get With Me Tonight – PDF Format
6. Hash Pipe – seal of quality
7. In The Garage – OxygenStar
8. You Gave Your Love To Me Softly – :(
9. We Are All On Drugs – Rabato
10. Jamie – Unicorn Dream Attack
11. Come To My Pod – Mahamajama
12. Why Bother? – I Fight Dragons
13. Buddy Holly – nordloef
14. I Do – arcadecoma.

And it’s free, and you should just go get it now. [via crashfaster]

  1. Going in I thought this would sound terrible.. but I must admit I actually like it.

    It’s not really “8 bit”, it’s more like the original songs arranged with a bunch of 8 bit instruments, but it sounds so good I’ll let them get away with it. ;)

  2. I don’t get it. How is it NOT “8bit” if its songs arranged with a bunch of 8bit instruments? That’s what “8bit” is.

    P.S. I’m in love with Bit Shifter’s and PDF Format’s covers. Mind blowing.
