Greetings and salutations, vinyl voyagers! It is the year 20X9 and it is the future of video game music on vinyl records. We are here to kick off the new calendar with some great video game music on vinyl records! Jeremy and Paul, your dynamic duo for this episode, have a couple of picks and some great discussion for you.
First, Jeremy takes a journey into the music of Jesper Kyd’s score for Borderlands the Pre Sequel: Claptastic Voyage, and delves into a brooding electronic score that worked for him on a few levels. We discuss how music can be overlooked, both while playing, but in the marketplace. Paul follows up with more time for his tally in outer space with The Music of Destiny: Volume 1. Both hosts reminisce about the mood and drama of Destiny, and discuss musical moments that have just “got inside them” at some point.
We cover all the news and new releases that hit at the end of 2018 so you can make sure your wallet gets its workout, but don’t forget those fiscal resolutions for the new year!
Finally, we talk about the idea of buying duplicates, either intentionally or unintentionally. We also discuss the knotty issue of reselling records, and buying them intentionally for short term or long term “investment.”
Outro: “Guardian” – Destiny, by Martin O’Donnell, Michael Salvatori, C. Paul Johnson, and Paul McCartney
