Radio OverCoat #233 (2017-08-20): Starin’ at the Sun

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:

Radio OverCoat #232 (2017-08-06): A Large Ogg

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.
