Episode 75 :: Goldeneye 64 Orchestrated, Untitled Goose Game

Blog link: http://videogamegrooves.com/2021/01/23/episode-75-goldeneye-64-orchestrated-untitled-goose-game/

We’re putting the needle down on the run-in groove for 2021. It’s a little noisy so far, so we might need to damp clean the whole thing. For our first episode we’re joined by Justin O’Rear from Respawned Records to look at some our favorite recent game-music-on-vinyl releases that are just begging for a closer look. We begin with one of Paul’s runners-up for last year, Goldeneye 64 Orchestrated, from Respawned Records. This music takes us immediately back to rowdy group gaming sessions with friends, and punishing cheaters who looked on our quadrant of the TV! We explore the game’s weird development history and its eponymous tie-in (but we forget to mention last month’s collapse of the Areceibo Observatory!) and how the convergence of pop culture and circumstance made N64 Goldeneye a household name in the late 90s. We continue with a look at Untitled Goose Game from iam8bit, and discuss its similarly-unexpected captivation of pop culture. Claude Debussy’s “Preludes” get a bit of airtime and we talk about impressionist piano composition (take THAT Debussy!)

We run through the most important news… make sure not to skip this part! There’s a lot going on!

And finally we use the “fun old memories” of Goldeneye to springboard to the “fun new memories” of music and experiences like Untitled Goose Game, and we talk about whether game music on vinyl can be a catalyst for some latter-day nostalgia.

Senpai's Playlist 2x01 Among Us: Anime Edition or Skip To The 14:21 Mark

Myself and Claire are back with the 2nd Season of Senpai's Playlist. Our first episode topic revolves around a game that took the world by storm last year; Among Us. But instead of the regular avatars, we've each chosen 3 characters a piece to figure out who is the imposter. So pull up a chair and crack a cold one open because we discuss everything from the Capitol Siege, top 10 pornstars, whether or not this current generation is too soft, and the announcements/priemeres of several anime and movies we've been waiting on.

He's the bad boy of video games, and he's the musician who plays by the rules. Together they are fighting crime! I mean, they are listening to great music with their friend Hammock! (KVGM, The Last Wave) We're listening to music that could be in a "buddy-cop" movie/television series. And IT RULES!

Let the music put you into the movie theater, watching two cops work together. Despite their differences, they both want justice! Heck, why would you just listen to the music, when you can listen to cold-reads Rob's first screen-play: Pernell and Poochie: Crime Fighting Buddies for Life!

Hammock is the host of KVGM The Last Wave, the absolute chillest and most smoothest podcast ever created for the internet. Every WEEK you can get down with his smooth voice and the absolute sexiest music in video games ever composed. Listen here!

Episode 67 – No Nostalgia Fighters

Podcast VGM SNK XVGM Radio

HADOKEN! GET OVER HERE! C-C-C-C-COMBO BREAKER! All of these are sounds of the arcade and fighting game scene in general. But what about the fighting games that we didn’t play to death? On this episode of XVGM Radio, we dive into the music from fighting games to which we have zero nostalgia. From heavy discussions about balls..er...ballz, Alice Deejay comparisons, to the surprising lack of memories from giants like Sega, SNK and Konami, this is an episode full of monster tunes of an eclectic nature. New Jack Swing, 90s techno, jazz and funk are all represented. Get ready for a VGM tournament of which these two hosts haven’t attended as our No Nostalgia series continues with No Nostalgia Fighting Games!

Episode 2-11: Platformers with ProfJeff!

Greetings, Gamers, and Happy New Year! This week, the hosts are joined by Apparently-Regular-Episode-Eleven-Cohost ProfJeff! The trio has an absolute blast discussing some of what might be considered lower-tier platformers. Or at least 2D side-scrollers. We play it a little fast and loose. But just like always, you can rest assured in the fact that everything we’re playing is Very Good Music!

Note - we usually try to keep this show G-rated. This one gets solidly PG in a few places - notably in our discussions about Donk and Tembo and after our Spelunky discussion. For anyone who is sensitive to mild cursing or innuendo, discretion is advised.

Thanks as always to our amazing patrons and the artists who made our show art and theme song. Links to their content can be found below the playlist on our YouTube video! You, too, can become a patron at patreon.com/vgmvgm, and you can reach out to us by e-mail at verygoodmusicvgm@gmail.com, on Twitter @Shootkpow, or by leaving us a voice message at anchor.com/vgmvgm.

Episode 66: Amiga Spotlight w/ NikoTengoku

Guest Podcast VGM YouTube Amiga XVGM Radio

New Year, New Niko Episode! 2020 was a rough year on all of us, but before it got out of hand, Niko had stopped by for an episode in January and there was discussion at the end of that episode to cover Amiga the next time he stopped by. We didn’t forget his suggestion, and so this episode of XVGM Radio sees the NikoTengoku himself is back with a slew of amazing Amiga tracks that will melt faces! Mike and Justin add some goody goody BASS to the mix, Justin’s eyeballs get threatened while he dreams about freshly squeezed apple juice and the boys crack up about hilariously bad cutscene art from Thunder Jaws, all on this absolutely hysterical episode of XVGM Radio!

Episode 26-2 Goodbye to 2020!

rhythm and pixels World 26 dwelling of duels friday night funkin kawaisprite maxiedaman the runaway four wasd yuppie psycho

This week on the show we're saying hello to the new year and GOODBYE to 2020 with a live show for our Patreon members! All of the music this week is somehow related to the good and the bad of 2020. There's also a silly quiz game that you can play along with!

Joining us on the show this week is Austin (WASD, Dwelling of Duels) and Josh (The Runaway Four)! They're here to promote their fantastic show BONUS DUELS happening this coming Saturday! But little did they know that they would have to hang out with Rob and Pernell for a couple hours and answer their questions about life, religion, and Shin Megami Tensei.

Very Good Music Bonus Episode 4: Interview with Artist Naomi Rubin

In this very special bonus episode, the hosts are joined by the artist who designed their awesome cover art: Naomi Rubin! We had a blast digging into Naomi’s process for coming up with the VGMVGM design, and in talking about some of her influences. Of course, there’s still plenty of Very Good Music, as the trio listens to three songs, each representing one of the stars of the art itself: Sans, Zelda, and Proto Man!

No playlist this week. Naomi is the star of this show, and we want to keep the music a bit of a surprise. More than ever, we would love for you to check out the accompanying video on YouTube, where you can get an exclusive look at some of Naomi’s in-process artwork!

Finally…we have a Discord now! Come join us and talk about the music here: https://discord.com/invite/qpbXPdCf2N

That’s all for now. We’ll see you in one week for Episode 2-11: Platformers with ProfJeff!


Musical artists featured: Toby Fox, Toru Minegishi, Yasuaki Fujita, Hideki Sakamoto, and Kenta Nagata

Battle Bards Episode 184: MapleStory 2

Nexon's late, doomed MapleStory 2 gets a resurrection of sorts, as the Battle Bards salvage the soundtrack and deliver it, shining and sparkly, to you. It's a surprisingly good score with lots of interesting themes, and as such, Steff, Syl, and Syp are excited to talk about it. So rest in peace, MapleStory 2, we think you left behind a delightful musical legacy.

  • "Knight Theme"
  • "Perion Field 1"
  • "Tria"
  • "Dream"

From Chrono Trigger to Xenoblade, it's clear that Yasunori Mitsuda is a master composer. Why not finish the year with music from one of our favorite composers! We celebrate the end of 2020 with a special episode focused on the composer Yasunori Mitsuda.

Of course all our episodes begin with some game discussion and what we're playing. Lots of extra movie talk than we expected. Lots of great music in this episode!

Here it is, gamers...our 10 bestfavorite most memorable(?) tracks from the podcast in 2020.

We even get to open up with a few picks from our wonderful patrons! Thanks for a great year, and let's all hope that 2021 holds many great things for us all!

Thanks for making 2020 as bearable as possible by continuing to support the show. And stayed tuned next month as the Last Wave is about to bring something extra to those who want it...

We always pride ourselves in finding the best game music you may have never heard of. But this week we take things a step further. We dig deep into the catalog of classic and current-generation game systems looking for music that was overlooked. Joining us on this journey is Chris Taylor (twitch.tv/lierxagerate), Twitch streamer and creator of the Facebook group: Hidden Sound Test

Along with all the great music we get into some deep discussion of the games too! Chris talks about his road-trips to MAGfests past, and even includes his own arrangement of an excellent (and obscure) Neil Baldwin tune!

Rock Out With Your Cart Out 52 – Winter Wonderland 2020

Podcasts Rock Out With Your Cart Out

Making this an annual tradition now, I put together some nice, winter-y sounding pieces together for a winter/holiday episode. I did it a little differently this year and did all the talking right up front and then let the music take us through the rest of the episode without interruption. I thought it would be a nice way to get in the mood without someone interrupting every few minutes. Hope you enjoy!

Christmas Eve in an Ice Cavern

Yes, it’s the annual Singing Mountain episode about chilly winter music. The big difference is that this year I’m actually allowing a few tracks that have sleigh bells jingling. Don’t worry — they’re still moody, but this is a less melancholy collection of ice level VGM than I’ve put together in recent years.

And if this isn’t enough for you, an “all music, no talk” supermix of all the 16-bit winter VGM I’ve featured so far will be going up later today on the Singing Mountain Patreon feed.

Videri String Quartet Reveals Their 'Quarantets' Competition Winners

This summer the Videri String Quartet launched a competition, Quarantets, as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic and their separation from each other as performers. The competition solicited string quartet arrangements of music from video games that were set in a post-apocolyptic world, or other circumstances in which life suddenly changed. After judging over 60 entries, the winners were chosen to create an album that will be released soon. I talked with the performers for this project: violinists Matheus Souza and Eli Bishop, violist Rosalie Samter and cellist Jeremiah Barcus about this home-stretch of the Quarantets project, and find out the winners. The Quartet received entries from games they expected, like the just-released Last of Us II, but there were also some surprising submissions including a fun arrangement by Thomas Kresge of music from Nintendo's Dr. Mario. Despite the bleak inspiration for the competition, the process was incredibly therapeutic for the members of Quartet

Plus, we continue with the news and new releases, and there’s plenty of —UNSPEAKABLE VIOLENCE—your wallet, so watch out! 😉

Plus, we discuss games of 2020 that we think deserve a vinyl release, including a few so obscure, you might think we invented them! Listen in and—SUFFER ENDLESSLY.

Godfall, created by the small studio Counterplay Games, is a launch title for the brand new Sony Play Station 5.

Music Block Runtime: 03:32:38 Total Episode Runtime: 03:38:18

SPECIAL NOTE: Listeners get first dibs on all tracks that both they and St. John wanted for their respective episodes. So, any such "overlap" tracks appear in pt 1, rather than in this episode. Before I ever even ask the listeners for tracks, I already have two separate lists of candidate tracks drafted up, a 75 track "Main List", and a 50 track "Backup List", and as listeners select tracks that were on one or the other of these two lists, I would strike them from my list for the listeners to have (or more accurately, just gray them out). Afterwards, I pulled from my remaining eligible backup tracks to fill in the gaps left over from the main list to bring me back to a final track count of 75. As such, even though this is "my episode", it's also at least a little bit "the listeners'" episode as well, as by their selections, they sort of "put up fencing" for me, forcing me to change the sound of the episode a bit from what it would've been had I just rolled with the original 75. From my main list, the listeners had selected 15 tracks. From my backup list, they had selected 9, necessitating that I pull 15 tracks from the remaining 41 backups to fill in the gaps. The tracks pulled from my backup in this way will be highlighted in BOLD. The Lone exception to this is as it concerns my picks from C1E43: Commodore 64 Epics. The track on my main list, Tetris, was just too long, and didn't fit in the music block anywhere, whereas the track on my backup list, Subtune 1 from Flash Gordon would've worked, but I didn't want to use it again because I had just used it in the Golden Episode, and had wanted to expand the exposure of Henrik's selections. So I nixed them both, went back to the drawing board, and chose Trap. This one will be indicated in BOLD, ITALICS, AND UNDERLINE.

Lastly, I just wanted to say how much I always enjoy doing these "Best of 20XX" series, both the Listener Picks and the St. John's picks. It's fun to listen to "Best of 2017" and get a nice, distilled view of 2017, and the same for 2018 with "Best of 2018". Even as the show's creator and host, and principle curator, even I only have a hazy, murky picture of what a year looked and felt like til I get to experience its distilled essence in the annual "Best of 20XX". And to that point, it's remarkable how similar the "Listener Picks" to those first two years sounded, while how very different the two corresponding "St. John's" picks were for them. The listener picks installments focused primarily on the rockin' and energetic sides of those years' outputs (albeit with nice chill moments interspersed), where very little of that rockin' energy made it into either of my own collections. And yet, on my collections, 2017 was much more bright and effervescent and optimistic, where 2018 was much more rich and smooth, and matured. The truth is that whichever one of the two St. John's picks installments that I'm listening to at the moment is generally my favorite of the two at that moment. So, how was 2019 going to compare and stack up against 2017 and 2018, especially when it only had 10 episodes compared to 20 each for the first two, and such an outsized portion of that music for just one system because of our massive PC Engine / Turbografx16 focus? Well, on the St. John side, it comes out just about precisely as I was hoping that it would – as an almost perfect "meet in the middle" compromise between the effervescence of 2017 and the depth and smoothness of 2018, even with all that "velvet gravel" of the HuC6280 in play. Maybe it's just the newness talking, and I'll change my mind in time, but I really, truly think it just might be my favorite of the three – which is just what I was hoping for.

The real surprise, though, was on the "Listener Side". Whereas the listener picks in both of the first two years were more energetic and rockin', and even though there was a comparable amount of that kind of music in the available track lists for their selection in 2019, and the majority of selecting listeners were returnees from at least one of the previous two outings, the Listener Picks best of 2019, on balance, strikes me as much more mellow and laid back. It actually sounds more like a St. John's picks outing than it sounds like either of the previous two Listener Pick outings despite having a similar amount of overlap between listener picks and St. John picks, and even more interestingly, despite being only about 50% comprised of tracks originally selected by St. John in the original 2019 episodes, the rest being originally selected for those episodes by contributing listeners and collaborators: Bryce Dumond, Henrik Andersson, Electric Boogaloo...and most of all, Mario Mendez. Even though I have a much smaller footprint in the Listener Picks installment this year, and a comparable amount of overlap, this one to me still sounds just much more....I dunno....me. 😊 On balance, it's my favorite of the three years' Listener Picks episodes as well.

Anyway, I hope you will enjoy them as much as I had, and a huge thanks once again to all the listeners who contributed – nearly double the number of people who had contributed in the previous two years.

Cheers!

P.S.: there will be no 2021 "Best of 2020". Instead, there will be a 2022 "Best of 2020 / Best of 2021". It's easier to call these "Best of 20XX" episodes "annuals", especially when this is the only time in show history, or planned future history that it would not play out annually. But truth of the matter is that technically, they have never been "annual", but instead, they are "seasonal", as in one per each season of the show. And since Season 4 is being split evenly between 2020 and 2021, we'll just retrospect the entire 2yr season in 2022. December of 2021, instead, will be a free "Listener Picks" along the line of what we had in Dec 2018 with C1E40. So, it's not too early to start thinking of your tracks for that right now! 😀

P.P.S......yes, I did just "P.P.S."! 😀 In case you would find it interesting, and in case you didn't already see these in the show notes to part 1, during production, I had shared a worksheet .docx with the contributing listeners that included their selections, and notes to them as I worked my way through them, that they were able to watch developing in real time. Here's the link:

https://1drv.ms/w/s!AqhGLz1m7arYiOkZaA7HFC5IZLHV6w?e=s3Y6aY

And then I also shared the link to this Google Sheets file which originated as the list of eligible tracks from 2019 that the listeners and I were able to select from. But I have modified the document to include multiple other sheets, showing unsorted and sorted listener picks, my unsorted worksheet, my sorted final list, and perhaps most interesting of all, a "Master Selections Overview", which is like looking through a multi-faceted diamond....like looking at the total picture "in 3D". If that sounds interesting...here you go:

There are awesome tunes and attempts at humor, so enjoy!

Episode 2-8: In the Land of Ice and Snow

It's beginning to look a lot like...well, winter! And you know what that means in VGM Podcast Land: a special, winter-themed episode! We wanted to start this tradition off with a bang, so Bedroth cooked up something wildly involved and time-consuming to bring you some wintry VGM you're unlikely to have heard before on other VGM winter specials.

In fact, the hosts worked so hard to find you some bangin' good tracks to welcome in the season, there were too many to fit into one episode! You'll learn more about that as you listen to this, our first of TWO winter-themed shows. This episode, which we're calling "In the Land of Ice and Snow" features themes that fit the darker, more emotional side of the season. If it gets a little heavy for you, tune in in ONE WEEK to hear the 2nd show, which will be a lot more festive.

Thanks as always to our amazing patrons and the artists who made our show art and theme song. Links to their content can be found below the playlist on our YouTube video!

Rock Out With Your Cart Out 51 – Secret of Mana Madness

Podcasts Rock Out With Your Cart Out

Instead of covering the Secret of Mana soundtrack in its entirety, I decided to take a different approach and pick five tracks from the original Super Nintendo version, Secret of Mana Genesis / Seiken Densetsu 2 Arrange Album, and the 2018 remake. I was curious to see how those tracks were handled in each iteration, so I thought finding five I specifically liked and hearing how they were changed would be a fun little experiment.

On our second to last show of the season, in honor of cuffing season (which Claire is just learning about) we decide to have a Waifu matchup. Claire chooses 3 waifus for me and vice versa. We also explain why said waifus would be perfect for each other. We also talk about my issues with blondes, Chipolte having a cuffing season menu (I'm so serious), look at very lewd pictures of women from anime, and whether or not we could actually pull off a PG episode (this cause Julie to laugh pretty hard). So sit back, grab your cuddle buddy and a cup of cocoa, cause we're trying to bag us a waifu.

Darren Korb's Metal-Inspired Soundtrack For 'Hades'

It seems the developers at Super Giant Games never run out of ideas! As soon as they finished up their game Pyre three years ago, they immediately began work on Hades, which follows the hero Zagreus as he attempts to escape the Greek Underworld to be reunited with his mother, Persephone. Soundtrack composer Darren Korb says he assembled a collection of traditional instruments, including a Greek bouzouki, but since the game takes place in Hell, it had to have full-on metal guitars! One by one, Zagreus meets iconic characters from Greek mythology, including Poseidon and Aphrodite, whom he needs to defeat on his quest to reach the surface. Darren says it was a fun challenge to give each boss their own musical identity, and often he wrote the music for their battles from the end and worked backwards. Far and away the highlight of working on this soundtrack was the opportunity to record some of the music at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London. Darren says it was an incredible

Battle Bards Episode 182: Last Oasis

What does the apocalypse sound like? That's the burning question, so to speak, that the Battle Bards are investigating this week as they dive into the soundtrack to Last Oasis.

Note: Listeners get first dibs on all tracks that both they and St. John wanted for their episodes. So, any such "overlap" tracks appear in this episode and will not appear in St. John's follow-up. However, the overlap tracks ARE indicated in the track list like so: BOLD / ITALIC / UNDERLINE tracks were on St. John's main track list, where BOLD, but non-italic or underline were on St. John's backup track list. There are fifteen of the former and nine of the latter in this list.

Our Intro and Outro Music is Funky Radio, from Jet Grind Radio on the Sega Dreamcast, composed by BB Rights.

Produced using Ardour 6 / Audacity in Ubuntu Studio 20.04

A number of our contributing listeners have projects of their own that I would wish to share with you here:

Hugues Johnson: In addition to being my principle co-host on the all-new "Nerd Noise Radio – Channel 2", Hugues, along with one "Rob, from Detroit" host the video game talk podcast "Retro Game Club", which covers retro and current video game news, particularly as it brushes up against the retro gaming world, and with a programers and developers bent (but at a lay user accessibility level). Retro Game Club can be found here:

https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/retro-game-club/id1453018680

The Diad: Ben, "The Diad" Dishman produces a now and then podcast called "The Diad Presents: A VGM Podcast", which goes deeper into history, composer info, and various factoids and trivia than any other program I know of. You can find it here:

https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-diad-presents-a-vgm-podcast/id1209626172

Pernell Vaughn: Pernell is one half of the Yin / Yang dynamic duo that is "Rhythm and Pixels". Pernell is the yang to Rob Nichol's yin, the fire, and energy and bombast to Rob's super laid-back ultra-chill, and the combination of the two energies is simply fantastic – unlike anything else you will find in the VGM podosphere. You can find R&P's "R&P" here:

https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/rhythm-and-pixels-video-game-music-podcast/id1061486328

Also look up Indie Gaiden on YouTube to find "Blown Cartridges", also featuring Pernell:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoDQj54Gd-w8RTdukMrQScQ

Trey Johnson: Trey, along with Jereme Makowski, and Jon Knitter are the hosts of the Nintendomain Podcast, a VGM talk pod, which covers the full spectrum of video game news, dabbles in news and current events outside of video games, and features frequent, and robust interviews with people from all over the video game spaces (including, once in a while, yours truly). In addition to Nintendomain, Trey also produces a now and then VGM mixtape pod called W.A.R.T. radio, DJ's VGM in Chicagoland, and does a now and then program with his wife, Jess Kenyon called "The Honey Darling Show", which covers movies and pop culture. All three pod programs can be found on the Nintendomain podcast feed here:

https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/nintendomain/id1055861408

Mario Mendez: Mario's program, "Grown-Up Pixels" features a mix of programs focusing on video game music, videogame talk, and most commonly (as well as most powerfully), video game memories and reflections. The heart and soul to "Grown Up Pixels", and the enthusiasm with which it's presented is unparalleled. You can find Grown-Up Pixels here:

https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/grown-up-pixels-podcast/id1467237767

You can also find Facebook and Twitter pages / groups for all of these, and in some cases, dedicated websites or blogs. Get subscribed, and get listening to / reading these great individuals' other works!

*= In cases where tracks were selected by multiple listeners, they were listed in the order in which they submitted tracks: Jeshua was first, then Hugues, EB, The Diad, Chris, Nathan, Pernell, Trey, and finally, Mario. I had mentioned that this 50 tracks came from a total of 79 submissions, containing 61 unique tracks. Since 50 was the hard limit, that left 11 tracks that we had to cut. I won't list the cut tracks here. But I will include a OneDrive link to the worksheet .docx that I used to sort all the selections, who made them, what tracks did and did not make the cut, as well as notes to the contributors, since this was a document I shared with all of them early on:

https://1drv.ms/w/s!AqhGLz1m7arYiOkZaA7HFC5IZLHV6w?e=s3Y6aY

I'll also share a link to the original list of eligible tracks from 2019 that I gave them to make their selections from, as it now contains new sheets revealing all sorts of additional info and "peeks behind the curtain"….including, for the astute...more than a few pt. 2 spoilers! 😉

A Road Walked by Heroes

A sequel of sorts to the “Lonesome Journeys” episode I did way back when, this episode is all about “sad travel music” — the kind of stuff you might associate with an RPG overworld, where the world is big and open and mysterious and you have to venture forth anyway. It’s a little somber, it’s a little hopeful, and it seems perfect for a late autumn day.

And if you haven’t yet, also give a listen to my episode “The Overworld Mixtape,” which is nothing but RPG overworld themes — no talking!

Austin Wintory Finds His Path With His Soundtrack For 'The Pathless'

The Pathless is the latest game created by Giant Squid studios. A mysterious island is plagued with darkness emanating from cursed beings, and it's up to a fearless Hunter and her Eagle companion to rid the island of these beasts. Austin Wintory created a pan-cultural soundtrack with diverse instruments including a traditional Swedish nyckelharpa, a Middle Eastern Oud, flutes and whistles, but he says the soul of the music comes from a six-hour jam session he had with the Alash Ensemble from Tuva. During its three-year development, T he Pathless grew in scale and identity. Austin collaborated with Giant Squid 's Director Matt Nava to re-imagine his music to fit the ancient, multi-cultural world of what Austin describes as a "playable myth." Portions of the soundtrack featuring brass and percussion were recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studio in London. Austin also rounded up many of the musicians whom he's worked with on other soundtracks, including wind and reed instrument
