MusicThe current Bandcamp Weekly is all about game music photo



Independent music enthusiasts (and especially those who follow game music) are pretty familiar with Bandcamp as a platform to get affordable music while giving the creators a greater cut than through traditional means. Perhaps less well known is the weekly podcast that Bandcamp produces, featuring discussion with artists and a sampling of music, occasionally revolving around a central theme.

Citing nearly $1.5 million worth of videogame music sold on Bandcamp, this week's podcast is focused exclusively on game soundtracks. Appearing on the show are Danny Baranowsky (Super Meat Boy), Jimmy Hinson AKA Big Giant Circles (Mass Effect 2), Jim Guthrie (Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP), Laura Shigihara (Plants vs. Zombies), Austin Wintory (Monaco: What's Yours is Mine), and Disasterpiece (FEZ).

It's a great episode, partly for the discussion but largely for the awesome playlist of music underscoring the whole thing. It's worth a listen if you have the time.

A Super Meat Boy movie? Here's the hilarious, shady pitch

It's hard to imagine what, exactly, a Super Meat Boy movie would look like -- but I'll go out on a limb and say it's probably for the best that such an adaptation never happens. Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes of Team Meat...more

Super Meat Boy speed run puts us all to shame

People are talking about Dark Souls, saying that it's all hard and stuff. While I don't disagree with that claim, the kind of difficulty that Dark Souls offers isn't the kind I can easily appreciate. Though I'm far from an e...more
