It has been an eventful couple of weeks since our last outing! Video game soundtracks are coming to vinyl more frequently than ever, and we’re here to help you sort it out! Paul, Anthony, and Jeremy chew through the news and announcements, point out some really choice pick-ups, and highlight a few opportune repressings you may be keen to know about.
In this episode we feature the Data Discs release of Panzer Dragoon by the late Yoshitaka Azuma, and Anthony guides us through the eclectic early 90s synth-percussion action soundtrack that “goes with everything.” Next we look at the Richard “Disasterpeace” Vreeland score for Fez, while Paul illuminates the secret and puzzling connections between music and gameplay.
In our third segment, the crew ruminates on the “holy grail” releases they would love to add to their collections, as well as nailing down the non-existent vinyl releases that they’d love to become reality.
