Deryn L. I first discovered Brother Android on a website dedicated to chiptune VSTs and lo-fi electronic music (woolyss.com, it's a great resource), and downloaded Scientific Satellite. I instantly fell in love. I couldn't explain why I loved it so much then, but I can now. It feels like a love letter written in an alien language, a pop album from a different galaxy, a cry for help that came a bit too late. The rerelease of four classic BA albums in a higher bitrate makes me happy beyond words. Favorite track: Scientific Satellite Deployment.

Florian I cannot even slightly describe how much I love Brother Android's music, especially this science fiction themed record. The music is so warm when reduced to 24kbps and so cold when in high fidelty. It is an unbelieveable blend of complexity and simplicity and I am happy that I got to know the music randomly some years ago. Favorite track: Cold Planet.

Ernie Shmitz Brother Android made a another amazing bunch here. Old stuff in that new quality, Awesome New stuff in that old 24kbps quality, and vice versa. Love the new tracks. Favorite track: From the Space-Side Window.

about

Brother Android's first two releases in all their original glory and then some. This quadruple EP contains all the tracks from Space Hymns and the Scientific Satellite EP, plus 16 new friends. Bursting at the bits with tunes & beats, blips & bleeps, squawks, squeaks, noise, & the occasional silence (for reflection). Stories of lonely voyages, desolation, mysterious sights, & the glory of God.

Tracks 1-8 are the "Tiny Spaceship EP."
Tracks 9-16 are the "Scientific Satellite EP."
Tracks 17-24 are the "Cold Planet EP."
Tracks 25-32 are the "Final Landing EP."
