Any day is a fine day for free music of any kind, but EarthBound is a game that strikes a particularly harmonious chord whenever it is mentioned. Maybe if fans believe in the power of friendship and magic enough, Nintendo of America will finally acknowledge that the Mother series is a thing that exists.
Back in January, a collective of web musicians, spearheaded by one sleepytimejesse, produced I Miss You - EarthBound 2012. The artists took sound samples directly from the SNES game to create something new yet still nostalgic and inviting. The album went up on Bandcamp where it can be purchased for a buck.
This past week, Ubiktune decided to host the album as well. To celebrate, the siteis offering it for free. After the jump, give the sample track by Joshua Morse a listen, then head on over to one of the links below for the full release. Maybe you'll wanna pay, maybe not. Your choice!
