Music to Subjugate the Adult in You. :)

Hi there, how have you all been?

Last week while reading this article in Paste‘s website I got in touch with a cute, interesting indie videogame: Castles in the Sky, by The Tall Trees. The premise–gameplay wise–is simple: exploring the environment by jumping around. But there’s something more to it; something deeper.

Castles in the Sky

Castles in the Sky somehow manages to evoke childhood memories… or maybe more; I would say “mindsets”. Of course, not everyone’s childhood memories are equal. But those guys nailed it by approaching the player in a more subconscious level, reaching an abstract yet palpable feeling anyone can relate to.

And music here (by Jack de Quidt) ultimately makes it greater than the sum of its parts. By supporting the watercolor palette cohesively with slightly melancholic piano-based themes it helps drowning you in your own nostalgia, whatever it may be about.

Check the trailer out and if you’re feeling curious/generous you may lend those guys a hand. It would be worthy for its soundtrack alone–which comes standalone in the pack–but $1.50 is a steal anyway. :)

Cheers, have an awesome musical week!

Nasty.

Paste’s list brings a few nice surprises (my favorite being “Tonight’s The Night” by Solomon Burke and “Use Me” by Bill Withers). My list is ready to roll and I’m going to share it anytime soon…

I could see this coming. ;)

Hi there, how have you been?

This week I’ll share a quick post once again from Paste Magazine on Alaska bands… Aside being an interesting point in itself those are actually great bands, well worthy of your time. :)

Radiohead: Live and Free. :)

Hi there, how are you all doing?

Just a heads up… Paste and Noisetrade have partnered to share a full Radiohead concert, back to “The Bends” days. The setlist is a killer one as almost no band could even come close of putting something alike together… The download is free but if you’re feeling generous every tip goes for charity. How awesome is that?

The sound quality isn’t the best out there but even that adds some charm to the show. Did I mentioned the killer setlist? :P

That’s it, enjoy!
