Intergalactic warbles reach us from some distant, and yet unknown galaxy. It sounds like music. It sounds like Zelda music! Across the cosmos comes The OneUps with that cosmic swagger.
Man I was out of the scene for a while if Mutherpluckin’ B could gather a band, and turn out a whole new album of funked out, funked up, and funked out of town video game covers. MB’s got posse, Killed by Koopa, and they are ready to start Stage One. This might be the most soulful, bluesy, funky, rocking album of classic VG jams to hit my ears since Mutherpluckin’ B’s last album. These instrumentals will stir the soul, and gets that blood flowing.
Armed with only a piano, DeusPony delivers video games, in the form of that piano. The piano makes music. The music is performed by DeusPony. It all works out very well. Especially for those who listen to the classy instrumentals in the DeusPony release Video Games to Piano.
Not since a noble pair known as Elfonso popped out of the UK have I heard some music that is so simultaneously catchy and strange. Much like video games, I have an affinity for novelty in music. I like new experiences and the eclectic sound of The World is Square definitely fits those parameters. I can just see myself listening to No Phoenix Down Can Save You Now at the millennial fair, and chugging down
beers sodas. Listen to this album when preparing to finally settle a mystery once and for all, or when sitting around a campfire.
There is a certain funk I prefer in my music, and The OneUps always deliver it with class. The intergalactic adventures continue through a mix of popular video game tunes, now with that OneUps style. Grab the album and enter the fight for video game funk.
Stop and behold the might of the minibosses, the band that introduced me to this whole listening to video game music without concurrently playing a video game thing. The brass is back, and this time it’s personal, in brass 2: mouth. Also, check out more art from the album by Matt Smith.
By the way, I love the Tecmo Bowl song, but can’t help but hear xoc’s lyrics from his T. Rex inspired tribute to Tecmo Bowl.
Check out the OCReMix tribute to the Final Fantasy that started it all. Twenty-one tracks by a ton of quality musicians, available for free download.
temp sound solutions is currently on a roll of divulging some forgotten tunes to the realm of bandcamp. Check out afx 118, otherwise known as the self pace ep, originally set to be released in 2006 on the now defunct Megatwerp chiptune netlabel. Only three bucks to get nine glitched-out songs to your computer.
Looks like DJ CUTMAN has fulfilled his destiny and found the three EPs that create the legendary Triforce of Bass. Grab it from the DJ CUTMAN bandcamp for free and hear tributes to Zelda from Skyward Sword to the original title that started it all.
In all honesty, I had run across this album, probably well over a year, or two ago. Unfortunately for me, and for you, I failed to write about this album as soon as I had come across it. Well now it is time to make amends for thast failure and introduce you to the Shining Force tribute album Shining Guitar.
