Kevin’s Music Reviews: 新しいデラックスライフ (New Life DeLuxe)

Kevin’s Music Reviews: 新しいデラックスライフ (New Life DeLuxe)

Here is a truly bizarre album, especially taken out of the context of its genre. I had trouble finding this album for obvious reasons – for one thing I can’t type in Japanese, and my only exposure to this album at the time was though a “vaporwave essentials” image, which of course I can’t copy […]

Kevin’s Music Review: PS1 Soundtrack – Revelations: Persona

In an era where JRPGs were still a genre of D&D motifs and high-fantasy as far as western gamers were concerned, the elusive Shin Megami Tensei franchise was decidedly a departure from what was considered normal. Even more so, when Final Fantasy VII had yet to popularize the genre, one of the few games in […]

Kevin’s Music Reviews: Uio Loi – Uio Loi

Sitting shyly in the painfully overlooked crevices of ambient electronic hip-hop sits a sharp producer by the name of Kyle Yerhot.

Kevin’s Music Reviews: Eternal Sonata (XBOX360/PS3 Soundtrack)

Even in the exhausted JRPG genre, there wasn’t a game quite like Eternal Sonata. Originally released in 2007 by Tri-Crescendo for the Xbox 360, Eternal Sonata more closely resembles a work of poetry in motion (albeit a cheesy one) than an epic endeavor to save the world. Delving into the subconscious and musings of a […]

Kevin’s Music Review: Boards of Canada – Music Has the Right to Children

Music Has the Right to Children…the faceless, brooding IDM titan indeed proves this notion truer than most, begetting countless electronic artists over the years, inspiring legions of nostalgic, watercolor-tinged dark horses, who all walk under the same turquoise hexagon sun. Scottish brothers Marcus Eoin and Michael Sandison have always been an elusive pair, both in […]

Kevin’s Music Reviews: First Impressions and Such – Library Pickups

Yes, we all know that bandcamp kicks ass. But can you get Kate Bush’s discography from bandcamp? No, you cannot. But you can get it at the library, among any number of bandcamp expatriates, 20th century juggernauts of yore, or otherwise anything you can get your grubby little hands on. And best of all, it’s […]
