Weekend Playlist: Summer Jams

Summer is officially in full swing and most of you are probably sitting inside and playing Destiny. I dont blame you though, if I had a PS4 I would be doing the same exact thing.

You've got to hear this soothing banjo rendition of Link to the Past's Darkworld

Scritch, scratch, and remix your favorite chiptunes with Gambi

Gambi is an interesting app that allows you to remix and play around with chiptunes. It includes a free track that you can mess about with, though the actual app itself is $7, if you want to take the plunge. The layout is qu...

This Parappa homage is simultaneously genius and cringeworthy and I like it

From Gmcfosho, the mind that brought you "IMDABES" and "SWAGGIN DRAGON" comes "GTFO," one of the greatest videos you may ever see. It's a hilarious nod to getting all those losers out of your house after a party gone awry wi...

SNES-style battle music album Boss Battles for the Soul is out now

Last year, electronic music creator Mark Reichwein ran a little Kickstarter campaign for his pet project: to produce an album of boss battle music in the style of various 16-bit era games. The catch is that these track would ...

Listen to the 1001 Spikes soundtrack on Bandcamp

Between 1001 Spikes and Shovel Knight, this has been a great month for games that look and sound old but feel modern. If you're in need of a break from the latter's soundtrack, note that the music for 1001 Spikes is also up o...

The Primal Rage end credits song is the best thing I've heard all day

Primal Rage has been surprisingly relevant lately, which is a good thing because it's led to the recent revelation that this end credits song is amazing. Did you know this existed? I didn't. Max didn't either. Try to take three minutes out of your raging all night and all day to give this a listen.

You could be listening to the Shovel Knight soundtrack right now

I'd rather be playing Shovel Knight right now but there's work to be done and the guilt that would ensue would be too much for me to handle. Thankfully, Jake Kaufman's original soundtrack for the game is up on Bandcamp and it...

Weekend Playlist: Anamanaguchi

This Sunday I get the chance to play with one of my favorite bands of all time, Anamanaguchi. This chiptune band has been rocking my ipod since forever, and It's almost hard to believe I have been listening to these guys for...
