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.

We’re all danced out, so it’s time to hit the lounge. We focus on another musical sub-genre of sorts, the chilled-out jazzy lounge music. It gets a little funky, it gets a little “elevator”, but it’s all so good.

A new podcast approaches! This week we listen to tracks from post-apocalyptic role playing games that span across 2 decades of video game history. Shin Megami Tensei, or “Megaten” games are in our music sniper-scope this week. So give it a listen! Or you can talk to it, and try to persuade it to join your party.
