When This World Is No More

A little while ago, I stumbled across a site called Game Music Bundle. I became instantly interested since I like games and game music even more. The bundle itself included the soundtrack to not only the amazing schmup, Jamestown, but a whole array of wonderful indie games. It was even better because the consumer was allowed to name their price. The higher your price, the more you got. I was able to get the resurrected first bundle as well as the second for a very affordable price. After a session of listening to a few OSTs, it made me curious to see if some of the other games were just as fantastic as Jamestown. Out of the many that were there, I tried out To The Moon.

I have been in love with the game and its soundtrack ever since.

Because A Panda Thing Swallowing You Is Not Nightmare Fuel.

So far we've had an audio and album review post. Now it's our first video post! Hooray!

It took me awhile to figure out what genre and what visuals I wanted to present for our first video catch. Should it be super artsy? Would it be better to defy all metaphorical thought? Should I just not give a damn? While browsing around and thinking, a conversation in a bookstore with Curtigh caught my attention. We were in the arts section and glanced upon a book on very simple designs and patterns. Clean, neat, stylized and pretty easy to conceive. The style we immediately thought to compare the book to was of this video. And so I simply present to you Fantastic Plastic Machine's Different Colors:

Stuck On Replay

Super Mash Bros. is this duo, now trio, of hipsters that likes to mash up current-ish pop music with nostalgic classics. Their debut, Fuck Bitches. Get Euros. was a fantastic album, with nearly all the tracks being instantly catchy. (see here). Their sophmoric effort, All About the Scrillions was much more hit or miss. And now, they have released a third album, Mile(y) High Club. After a frankly awful live show (mostly due to the audience), have they redeemed themselves?

Oh god yes.

I Ride Out, I Dip Out Like This

Alright, so to start this off, I can't say that the material will be kid-friendly. Most of my friends and I listen to a lot of uncensored music. We also listen to a lot of foreign and instrumental music, so there's no big discrimination when it comes to what we like. We'll try all sorts of beats and this is what this blog is about.

And here we have our first music post!

Found on a site that deconstructs mashups and mentioned to me later by a friend, CROSSHATCH (previously known as fatfuck) meshes an array of music with skill similar to Girl Talk (specifically his album "All Day"). Hailing from the UK, he isn't very well known at the moment, at least to our knowledge.

CROSSHATCH - Bounce Back

Weighing in at around 3.5 minutes, I have come to love Bounce Back because it works on so many levels. It has me singing a great mix of songs and bobbing my head ferociously, particularly in the middle with Crucial Conflict, deadmau5 and Kid Cudi. I'm not really fond of the end as much (right at Khia's My Neck, My Back), but it's not outright bad. Just not my favorite.

CROSSHATCH's mixes are fantastic with great transitions and attention to small details. Many of his mashups work tremendously well and my friend believes he is possibly working on an album. Here's to hoping because I need more in my collection.

Visit his soundcloud for more music!


It Begins.

The blog created solely out of boredom, that is. More will be revealed (not really), but this will be a place where I and possibly others can share music finds we think are interesting/good/fantastic/crack-on-a-stick. All in fun.

Stay tuned!
