TV on the Radio (No, Seriously.)

... We'll be riiiiiiiiiight back!
There are few artists with track records as proven as my boy Doctor Octoroc. His always unique concept pieces and all killer, no filler approach to chiptunes have made him a wholly deserving internet legend. From his 8 Bit Jesus holiday album to his amazing interactive YouTube video series based on hit musical comedy Glee, Doc Oct always seem to have just the right release waiting in the wings.

His latest creation, After These Messages, is a 33-track monster inspired by classic television. Theme songs, commercial jingles and even those unforgettable ditties form your favorite game shows are each given the NES-style musical treatment from the good Doctor. And the prognosis is awesome! (See what I did there?)

It's a pay-what-you-want release, which means you can, if I'm understanding this correctly, pay what you want for it. And whatever you pay, I promise it'll be well worth it.

Check out the official project page for more details, and "Like" that bad boy on Facebook to help out with the all-important album promotion.

Still, the question remains: what is next for Doctor Octoroc? My guess is an 8-bit musical based on Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's highly influential German-language tragedy Faust. But that's just, y'know, me spit-ballin'.
