So I just recently got into 8 bit electronica. I mostly just listen to it while gaming, and I like that a lot of it makes me reminisce about the good ole' days at Gammy's house playing the NES. Any recommendations there? How about this. Just recommend me your favorite band. Let's not get all fanboy about this, eh? ;)
album: Embered Recollections
there are only 7 songs, totally original but reminds me of epic 8bit boss battling music. he has more than just this album. this guy is local from my town, other worthy mentions is Nerd Army(http://www.youtube.com/user/nerdarmytheband?feature=results_main)
from Halifax, they cover alot of old games, not in 8bit but with actual guitar drums and bass

Check out Danimal Cannon (AWESOME live show as well): http://danimalcannon.bandcamp.com/
Not chiptune, but The Minibosses are the best when it comes to rocking video game covers, IMO. Also great live. (= http://www.minibosses.com/
You can download their first album free, and their second is $7.
