BestLuck Original Game Soundtrack by Spencer Bambrick

BestLuck Original Game Soundtrack by Spencer Bambrick

New York based composer Spencer Bambrick has released a collection of music from the currently in development indie game BestLuck. The album bio describes BestLuck as, “...a story-driven puzzle game set in a dreamworld. The narrative is beautiful and emotional, with a soundtrack to fit the mood.” The soundtrack we are discussing right now. The bio continues, “The music features a string quartet and solo soprano voice. This chamber ensemble sets the tone, and highlights the heartfelt events that occur in BestLuck.”

I had the chance to catch these folks performing at MAGWest last year, and have been looking forward to this album for a minute. Glad to finally share this smooth collection of classic game sounds. Fans of Nintendo soundtracks better listen up. Super Mario and Legend of Zelda get some special attention, along with a tribute to Metroid along with the original Tetris.

Viking Guitar Live keeps the world metal with Warpath

Viking Guitar Live keeps the world metal with Warpath

I've seen half of this band perform at multiple times, in multiple places. One day I will see the full band in one place at one time though. Got to have life goals. VGL really runs the gauntlet here with seven tracks from seven different series. None of them Gauntlet though. We do got some Mega Man X2, Ninja Gaiden 2, The 7th Saga, aaand Zelda, Secret of Mana and Ghosts 'n' Goblins. One series being an anime and not a game, though I think there was a Trigun game once.

The Mimmos' self titled album

The Mimmos' self titled album

When I first hit play on this EP, it suddenly washed over me how much I enjoy this band. The album seems to pick up right where 2015's Rowboat EP left off. Building from the lo-fi crunch of Rowboat to the clear, assured sounds of this album, it feels like a nice, natural progression of The Mimmos' sound. As with the previous album, there are many references to water, the sea, and water related things, which I really love. Water might be my second favorite reference point for music, the first being outer space.

2 Mello – Streets of Resistance

2 Mello – Streets of Resistance

As with most Mello mash up albums, there is always that theme or through line. Basically, 2 Mello's mash up albums sound like fully realized albums, and not just a collection of mashups he just bundled up and shipped out. It's just one part of why 2 Mello is the man.

Streets of Resistance has a vibe as if the story is being told by all the 'criminals' living in… oh, the city doesn't have a name. Well, crime is a complex thing, you can't get rid of it by just beating it up. Even if you have a bad ass soundtrack while doing it.
