Guildlings OST // Interview with Pedro Silva

Most of you know Pedro Silva from their enormous contribution to modern chiptune a la everyones favourite 8bit/dreampop/VGM project Slime Girls. Pedro is an incredibly talented musician, composer, and performer from Los Angeles, California and they are responsible for this meticulously crafted 20 track OST. Guildlings is a story driven RPG episodic adventure from Sirvo Studios with an endearingly unique premise and a focus of exploration, conversation and non-traditional combat. The art style is akin to low poly 5th generation console games like Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards and modern day indie contemporaries like The Flame in the Flood. The music does an excellent job of punctuating the...

Serotonin II

ambient chillwave synth pop

Serotonin II

Nat Ćmiel AKA yeule is a UK based musician who specializes in avant-garde synth-pop and experimental electronica. They are named after Paddra Nsu-Yeul from the criminally underrated Final Fantasy XIII-2. I know what you are about to say and in my defense, f*ck you, that game is tight! Sounding like a cross between the legendary FROSTBITE EP by kitty and WIXIW by Liars. The songs have a dreamy, authentically cool and detached vibe that they often, quite transparently, attempt to duplicate in the mainstream music meat grinder. Seeing it here is stunning. Sometimes you hear a release and you instantly think to yourself "it was important that I heard this." yeule's catalogue features some...

Tales From the Flowers EP

Toronto based composer biosphere makes Studio Ghibli inspired instrumental hiphop. Their latest EP, Tales From the Flowers, features collaborative production from lofi artists Kalaido, aqualina, and ibrahim making it a great introductory release for anyone who wants to delve into the world of record crackle and soul samples. This album plays like a deligtful adventure, hand drawn and loviningly detailed. It makes me think of all the hidden little gems in the world of anime that never seem to get referenced like Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals, Origin: Spirits of the Past, Jade Cocoon: Story of the Tamamayu or Wonderful Days (Sky Blue). Tales From the Flowers will spark memories of your...

Cherry Plum

Cherry Plum

"Cherry Plum" was first prepared as a flower essence by Dr. Edward Bach in 1935, as a remedy for the intense fear of losing control of one’s mind and, if I may,  couldn't we all do with a bit of that shit right now. This cute little release was dropped in 2018 by  ahiru あひる an electronic artist from The Netherlands who specializes in downtempo, chillwave beats and piano compositions. They are a member of the "nemuri winter" sleepy beat netlabel & collective. Drift away with these six stunning tracks. Sounding like the score to and early Makoto Shinkai feature, this album is filled with...
