If you’re a fan of the Commodore 64, you might well be interested in this new musical project from AMICOM, which offers a synthpop tribute to the revered SID sound chip on CD, vinyl LP, audio cassette and digital download. The SID Waves album will consist entirely of new compositions from the band AutumnKid, using vintage 1980s synths and the SID chip, with the likes of Depeche Mode, The Eurythmics and The Pet Shop Boys cited as influences.
The project is looking for €9,500 of funding to meet its goal, and you can get the album as a lossless digital download for a minimum pledge of €10. Stretch goals include cover art posters, extra mixes, bonus tracks, a gatefold cover for the vinyl and more.
