Happy new year from the Rhythm and Pixels team! We’ve got your morning playlist covered! Perfect after a long night of partying, video games, and fizzy drinks. Smooth sounds, strings, and even vocals dip and dive all over this mix of fantastic video game music.
Regular episodes will resume soon, so I hope you don’t mind this little Winter-break we’ve taken for ourselves! 2020 is going to be full of fun times and great music, so we’ll see you soon!
Twin Souls – Dust: An Elysian Tail – PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch – Hyperduck Soundworks (Chris Geehan, Dan Byrne-McCullough)
This week’s show is all about playing fast, being fast, and finishing games fast! It was also recorded live at the Indy Hall in Philadelphia as part of the Philly Podcast festival! Sooooo, there may be a few visual jokes that won’t translate well, but it’s all part of the live experience! We hope you enjoy the show, because it was a blast to do!
