Minibosses 10 Year Anniversary - Live at the Yucca Tap Room album release

This year is a large celebration in the world of video game rock, not to mention a reminder of how old we all really are. This year marks the ten year anniversary of arguably the most well known group of Video Game Rockers in the world. This year The Minibosses turn ten years old. Earlier this year, the band commemorated this momentous occasion with an amazing show in their hometown at The Yucca Tap Room. Luckily for all those unable to attend, the folks from were amazing enough to capture this historic show on tape and release it to the world as Minibosses Live at Yucca Tap Room.

This live collection has eight tracks, including classics like Mega Man 2, Contra, and Super Mario Bros 2. Not to mention some surprise tracks not from their Brass album, including GI Joe. This album includes the show in full as well, with no breaks, and all the witty between song banter. The folks over at logicind also worked hard to capture the high energy and fun of the show, which comes across very well in this recording. So be sure to head over to the download page. Afterwards, celebrate this ten year anniversary over at the appropriate Minibosses forum thread.

Brian Davis - More Games album release

I have been listening to this album for a good while now, and feel like it is my duty to bring this great album out into a larger light. It was re-released back in 2008, and I only heard of it earlier this year myself. It is a fantastic, but short collection of some amazing live instrument covers of classic video games. This collection is by one Brian Davis and goes by the simple but appropriate name More Games. The album itself is available via this thread or you can download file right here.

The album takes us quickly through many memorable and cult classic gaming themes, kicking off with Chrono Trigger, and some underrated classics like Gradius 3, Secret of Evermore, AVP, and UN Squadron. There is certainly something for everyone here, but emphasis is especially placed on many SNES classics. The album clocks in at a short 22 minutes for 13 tracks, which sadly goes by a bit too quickly. The bright side to this is that the songs never overstay their welcome, and blend together very well so that you have rocked out to the entire album before you know it. This is a bit of a cult classic album that should definitely be on your playlist ASAP.
