Game Music Bundle is back at it
« on: September 06, 2012, 08:25:46 AM »
With an "iGMB" -- music for iOS titles.

http://www.gamemusicbundle.com/

Includes the all-new "Squids Wild West" soundtrack, which is an RPG of sorts. If you heard the original Squids, you know that soundtrack is solid. This one is double-solid, and double-long, and it's exclusively available here.

Also in there is Austin Wintory's "Horn." Wintory also scored "Journey." Which was hot.

And then there's a bunch of bonus stuff if you go the $10 route instead of the $1 route.

So yeah, that's awesome.

Yup, saw this earlier. I'll probably get it Saturday. I like supporting indie music makers. A lot of it is actually pretty good, too.

Globulous is fucking fantastic.
Friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn't matter, but work is third.

I just finished my ... 7th or 8th listen through Squids Wild West. And I'm pretty sure it's my favorite indie soundtrack of 2012. It's just freaking brilliant, and it channels some of my favorite composers (Naruke, Tanaka, Sakimoto). It probably helped that French native Romain Gauthier spent the last year IN Japan and wrote this soundtrack while he was there.

Purchased and downloading now. I'll report back with my impressions later.

I gave my own impressions to all 14 albums in a "video review" -- check it.

Great video, Pat! Just finished watching it. Music needs to get video coverage like this more often, it's very engaging.

I've listened to a good chunk of the music now.
Squids IS surprisingly good.
I like fast paced, technoey type stuff so Globulous is fantastic. I've actually bought Zircons other albums as well. He's good.
I'm digging Horn by Austin Wintory. It has a similar feel to Journey. Some beautiful tracks here.
I need to listen more to offer impressions of the others. Too much music at once tends to blur in my mind.

I really love Globulous. I've been a Zircon fan since the very early days on OCR, and he has yet to disappoint. Jeff Ball is also fantastic on there.
