It's Monday, and that means only one thing. FALCOM SOUND TEAM + VOLUME FULL BLAST! Be prepared for guitars, rock drums, violins, and the baddest synths of the 90s you've ever heard! The long running Ys series has some of the coolest music ever put to video games, and we're here to share the love, enjoy!
It's New Year's Eve and we party the only way we know how, great video game music and best friends! Instead of talking about resolutions for the new year, we select our tracks based on the end of the world! Mostly, Rob misunderstood and there's some extra goodies in there. But they're great, trust us! Goodbye Earth!
It's time for another live-streamed episode! All music this week has been picked by our lovely Patreon subscribers, thank you! Pizza is a big topic around the R&P office cooler, but our conversation goes all over the place.
It's no secret we are obsessed with the music from the Ys franchise. It is a secret how to pronounce the game's title. Why not enjoy this mixape of classic tracks from the Ys series!
Grab your keyboards let's celebrate all the great things Yamaha did for classic game consoles and computer systems! We focus strictly on FM synth music composed for games, particularly anything with big chunky bass and funked up keyboard leads!
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.
Last night a DJ saved my life with a 1-up! Our next two episodes will "club music" focused, with this episode being dance music. We're talking four-to-the-floor beats, massive sub-woofers, and all the glow-sticks you can eat! We also talk about dancing at weddings (which we love to do) and fall in love with Yuzo Koshiro all over again.
Rob and Pernell throw out their comfortable themed podcast format, and dive into the dangerous world of zero-theme for a second time. But this time, it's personal.
We got another great topic this week from one of our fantastic listeners! Well, we expanded on it a little, because there were some tracks we really wanted to play on the show 🙂 Our focus is on music outside of the action and drama, and instead on times where you're encouraged to take a moment for yourself.
Oh no! Pernell is at MAGFest this week and can't record! BUT WAIT! DON'T WORRY! Rob has got your back with a super-hot-chiptune-mixtape! New jams, old favorites, and silly scratches all mixed up together for your enjoyment this week 🙂
