The problem with plunging into the deeper recesses of video game inspired music is that I can easily miss out on the bigger releases in the process. I am only now discovering Professor Shyguy, and I'm glad I did.
That Chip-pop style I enjoy so much from the likes of The Grammar Club and Shael Riley is alive and well in Professor Shyguy's latest. Then the cameos by the incredible musicians Amanda Lepre, and Duane and Brando on their respective tracks make great contrasts of musical styles that I don't hear often enough in VGM.
Check out the latest, and, as far as I know, greatest, from Professor Shyguy, Rated Heart on bandcamp for $10 download.
