This week the super podcast brothers are joined by members from the VGM cover band Rare Candy to talk about all things Final Fantasy! We listen to tracks from nearly every console the series made an appearance. We also end up discussing the finer points of arranging video game tunes for the band, playing Gameboy in long car rides, and what qualities truly make up a “Pernell Track”. It was great fun to record, we hope you enjoy it!
Rare Candy are an amazing video game music cover band with works spanning over 7 years. They’re high-energy arrangements of your favorite tunes will instantly become your new favorites.
Brass! Strings! Percussion! This week we listen to music inspired by the classics, though we often find classical pieces adapted for video games. So why not showcase a little bit of both! Also, Rob tries-out for a position at NPR and Pernell has a serious Persona addiction.
Ever wanted to see a podcast recording in person? Well now is your chance! We will be recording an episode of R&P at Too Many Games convention this year! Check out the website and get yourself registered! We would love to see you there!
