Hey! Listen! volume 3 mixtape from Game Music 4 All


I am very happy to announce volume 3 in a monthly series of 5 song "mixtapes" from GM4A. The series is called Hey! Listen! and asks you to do just that! Check out the first mixtape page for info about how this mixtape series works. We are bringing you an extra heavy dose of VG rock on this album from the likes of Chile based ThePlasmas as well as East Coast rockers Rare Candy! Not only that, but we have a great laid back VG remix from all around nerd musician sli, and some great nerdcore hip hop from hiphopmcdougal. We top it all off with a beautiful closing song from NES Rock newcomers I Fight Dragons. All this is wonderfully labeled with artwork by good friend Leo Camacho. Well don't just sit there, dig in!

About the artwork:
The artwork is a remixed version of an art piece titled "The Unusual Suspects." The artwork was created last minute by Leo Camacho (who will be next months artist as well), so huge thanks to him on putting something great together on only a few days notice! Sadly we had our original artist have to drop off the project due to family affairs, but best of luck to her, and hope to have her on a future album!

Thanks:
Thanks again to everyone who checks out this album! Thank you for taking an interest in brand new and amazing music! Thank you to all the bands and artists kind enough to contribute their hard work for the mixtape! Thanks again to Hotdog Storm for hosting duties! Also thanks to any other sites, artists, blogs, or just regular folks who spread the word about these mixtapes!

About the artwork:
I think cephalopods are hilarious, with that in mind I asked about to see if anyone would want to draw some, luckily Mareyn answered the call and delivered three of the best classically trained creatures below 1,000 meters. I like to imagine these three squids playing sold out clubs in a different evolutionary setting. I have also named them! That is Inky on the left, Blobby on the right, and front and center is Admiral Inksax. I am bad with names. Anyway, the album art is also partly inspired by the final song on this compilation. Major thanks again to Mareyn and her ability to draw amazing art on pretty short notice!

Thanks:
Thank you to all the people who download and spread the word about this mixtape, as well as the last mixtape! I hope you are convinced of the awesomeness of these groups and decide to investigate their music further. Also a huge thanks to the bands who have been more than happy to contribute songs, and to everyone who has been willing to write about the mixtapes wherever they can. Thanks again to Alex Atchley for hosting the album on Hotdog Storm. And of course thanks to everyone who contributed to the mixtape, and look out for volume 3 already underway!

Hey! Listen! volume 1 mixtape from Game Music 4 All

I am very happy to announce volume 1 in a series of 5 song "mixtapes" from GM4A. The series is called Hey! Listen! and asks you to do just that! The goal of these mixtapes is to introduce you to bands, musicians, and artists who you may have never discovered otherwise. These are amazing folks who deserve recognition and I hope to help them out with that the best I can from this humble corner of the internet. Each volume will include five bands as well as an up and coming artist providing the cover art. Our first collection includes songs from seal of quality, Chiptots, Lumine Hall, Alex Atchley, and Tanuki Suit Riot, and the amazing cover is brought to us by Sasha Palacio.

About the artwork:
The woman on the cover is named Haiku, Sasha gives this story about her
"Haiku's Story: Born and raised in Tokyo, Japan, Haiku is a High School senior, gamer, anime fan, and artist. Her Father is a wealthy art collector and once famous Artist himself before his stroke. Her Mother is a beautiful Poet and had named Haiku after the beautiful Japanese form of poetry. Haiku's name held beauty, strength, and deep meaning. Haiku does have a deeper meaning, little does she know, she's the reincarnation of the famous High Priestess that guards the gates to Heaven."
