Pirateweather from Brooklyn’s Note! is a clever and well-crafted chiptune release. Focused partly on danceable beats and capricious blips and partly on an ambience of dull informatics and harsher sounds, Pirateweather is a unique hermeneutic achievement of delicate multidimensionality, exploring genre tropes, producing an ambiguous mood, and making it sound totally natural.
