A plethora of music graces the show this week, including FOURTEEN entries from Dwelling of Duels’ Brevity Month, cuts from the currently in-progress Sonic Zone ReMix Competition 2014, a preview from David L. Puga’s upcoming original album Die On My Feet, and more! Kyle and Larry discuss the Mamoru Samuragochi scandal, if modern video game music is inherently worse than classic chiptunes (SPOILER: it isn’t), Alexander Brandon’s Just Fun Kickstarter, obscure beat’em ups, and even some Super Bowl and Royal Rumble shenanigans.
It’s another jam-packed episode of the Gamewave Podcast! Joe plays a selection of chiptunes from Tokyo’s Cheapbeats record label, talks about the glut of 8-bit shows and festivals planned for 2014, and reads out some mail from our dear listeners. There’s also a brand new track from Comptroller which has just been made available through OSC BOX Records. Continue reading ‘Gamewave Podcast Episode 74’ »

Today I had a listening party for Doxic’s new album, “the long goodbye,” a 36 minute ambient/idm album featuring dark dissonance and chilling tones to chill your bones. It’s available for download for pay what you want, show Dox some support! After his album I filled out the rest of the 2 hours with my own personal selection of ambient to complement the overall mood of the show. Read on for the full playlist:
So today I finally got to be on the air with a cohost again, and this person just happens to be MowtenDoo. He volunteered to be my cohost several weeks ago but didn’t have enough free time to be on the show until this week. Made for a really good cohost, except AS USUAL I go over like half an hour. Also, Babbe released a new album today for free! Check it out here. He also announced he’ll be selling things at this year’s Dokomi in Düsseldorf, Germany. Check out the full playlist below:

Since for the last two weeks we have covered dance and then rock music, this week’s podcast will be all about ~every other genre~. That’s of course not to say that these other genres are less worth listening to. Far from it, the songs tonight were pretty amazing! We even had Casket‘s latest album, which is like… Celtic music, except with techno. I also featured the amazing new Tokyo Active NEETs album, new Tutti Sound, TAMAONSEN, and more! I couldn’t fit this in only 2 hours either. Read on for the full playlist:
