We’re here in the nick of time with a podcast full of counter-programming for the holiday music cropping up everywhere around you. We got you fam. This week, Anthony, Paul and Jeremy tackle the self-referential music of the everything-referential game Saturday Morning RPG, by Vince DiCola and Kenny Meriedeth. Jeremy opines that the technical guitar and smooth synth are highly overlooked in the pantheon of game music, and we get a dose of Stemage RIGHT IN THE FACE. Paul transitions us to the baller sounds of Grand Theft Auto V (volume 2), the musical score discs from the big box set, and we spend a lot of time having Tangerine Dream..s.

In our second segment we round out the new releases you’ve been dying not to not pay money for, including a few cool represses and even a rumour or two!

And lastly, to round out our loquacious third segment, we discuss the dirty little topic of MONEY and SPENDING and COMMERCE. Our biggest spends? Our greatest bargains? We talk a little bit about that, anyway.
