episode_artwork87

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!
