Pornophonique and the Sad Robot

Sad Robot

How do you like your music? If you answered “8-bit and electronic”, then you’re in luck as I discovered a wonderful German band called Pornophonique a few years ago and I think you might like them!

Describing themselves as “Gameboy meets campfire”, their 2007 debut album ‘8-big Lagerfeuer‘ is available for free from their website and contains 8 very retro tracks including “Lemmings in Love”, “Space Invaders” and “Sad Robot” which also has a very nice video below.

If you like what you hear, you can also take it to the next level and download 4 remixed tracks, also for free.

The image at the top of this post isn’t official artwork for the group, it is a speed painting from a fan and can be found here.
