No theme this time! Just happy to share 10 more sweet songs.
Odyssée – Anomalie

As the year of 2017 begins to wind up this month, I felt it would be a worthwhile opportunity to express my admiration for the stacked games of 2017, especially this year’s incredible soundtracks. While surely there are plenty more games to come before the year is out, I think this solid group of 10 fit just fine for me.
A.I. – Raizer
Genre: Electronic Rock, Drumstep
Vibes: Pendulum, Angsty, Slightly Industrial, Voicians-like
Dusk. – Jinsang
Genre: Chill Hip-Hop / Lo-fi
Vibes: Miyazaki, Rain, Mellow, Somewhat Jazzy
Cartoon shows have some of the most catchy and nostalgic jams out there. Seeing how I don’t have much room to share my appreciation for these songs during my current jam and video game OST bits, I felt I’d start a new segment.
Pogo – No Worries
Genre: Chill Electronic/Acoustic
Vibes: Indoor days with a light drizzle outside, Sunday mornings, Low-key inspiration
WRLD (feat. Ehiorobo) – Drowning
Genre: Electronic, Downtempo
Vibes: Chill with a mysterious presence, Dream-like
There’s that old saying that it’s now impossible to sound completely “original.” When it comes to music, innovating on a note progression is going to be a challenge, so finding songs bearing similarities is bound to happen. Here are 10 songs from video games that sound awfully similar to another song in some way.
In celebration of Sonic Mania’s arrival, I thought I’d specialize this edition of My Favorite Video Games on yo boi Sonic! Whether the game was trash or brilliant, one thing Sonic games always have in common is sweet jams. From retro 2D, to 3D rock, to whatever hybrid time-line shenanagans the modern games are twisting on us, its all executed to a high level. From the exciting and fast paced first levels to the final boss fight music, Sonic music has got a spectrum of greatness to uncode. Enjoy!
