In this week’s show I attempt to make up for barely playing any videogame music despite being on a VGM radio network, so I played selections from a few recent games I’ve beaten or are playing. I mixed it up with a few of my favorite chiptunes and vgm covers too. Also played some STAFFcirc tracks, since STAFFcirc vol. 3 came out [Bandcamp, Name Your Price]. Also, this week, you may notice things are *a lot* louder. I’m putting this show up as an experiment. I decided to just hard limit everything in post because I was tired of manually editing all the volumes, also because ReplayGain betrayed me. I set the hard limiter to boost volumes but not destroy dynamics *too* much, so hopefully serious music fans out there don’t find this too unlistenable. Read on for the full playlist:
Join KyleJCrb for a special listening party presentation featuring the latest OverClocked ReMix tribute album, Mirror Image: A Link to the Past ReMixed: a reinterpretation of the soundtrack to Nintendo’s SNES masterpiece The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
EZK is off to parts unknown so it’s just Andrew this week.
No timestamps this week but I talk a lot about why I’m not into The Last of Us after three hours of play, my favorite anime, cellphones in movie theaters, difficulties with my new editing software and other fun stuff!
This week’s show was a real treat, at least for myself. I got a couple new albums to play for the show, T-Square’s 2016 CD “Treasure Hunter” and Yukihiro Takahashi’s “…Only When I Laugh,” vintage 1986. Somehow these albums eluded me until now, but I was able to get them off Google Play’s music store of all places. Otherwise Treasure Hunter in CD form would cost me at least $50! Ouch. I also got some stuff from Bandcamp again, Good Game’s “Don’t Blow It.” [Bandcamp, Name Your Price] ~ fleeting moments ~” from DESKPOP [Bandcamp, Name Your Price] and Garoad’s brilliant VA-11 HALL-A OSTs, [Bandcamp, VA-11 HALL-A Prologue OST – Sounds From The Future, $4.99+ / VA-11 HALL-A – Second Round, $7+]. I’ve been loving VA-11 HALL-A, myself, and you should really give this VN a few playthroughs [waifubartending.com], it’s got such a great style and the writing and dialogue is incredible. You know how I feel about anything cyberpunk. Also the OST really meshed well with the T-Square album I got, somehow. Last but not least I have to mention The Stupid Idiot Bros Stupid Show [Bandcamp, Name Your Price] because we finally get some (exciting) music around here! Thanks Robby.
