12 Followers – Meteo Xavier – “Impulse OST” Review

12 Followers-Meteo Xaxier have been busy making the soundtrack for a new game Impulse. The result is a technological mesh of all kinds of different genres into one melting pot of electronica. Opener “President Obama is a Juggalo” is a fun beaty and meaty track that flows nicely with some interesting combinations of monk choirs, […]

Austin Wintory – “Horn OST” Review

Austin Wintory earlier this year swept me away with the formidable Journey soundtrack which has become one of my favourite game soundtracks not just of the year, but of the last decade.

Aliens Incursion isn’t a game I’ve played (IOS – poor me with a non smartphone still) but elmobo has made a corker of a five track soundtrack for it.

Big Giant Circles – “The Haunting of Magnolia Manor OST” Review

Just two tracks encapsulate “The Haunting of Magnolia Manor” but Big Giant Circles manages to squeeze as much as he can into the small riff space he’s got. “Welcome Guest” has a great hark back to church organ Dracula dramas and reminds me of the Vampire ride at Chessington! It’s a short riff which is […]

Alec Holowka – “Offspring Fling Soundtrack” Review

Offspring Fling, the fantastic hark back to old times game released recently has an equally quaint and joyous soundtrack alongside it thanks to Alec Holowka. Opening with its slightly regal but playful “Mother’s Day” you’re presented with a lovely sample base of strings that fall somewhere between the PS1/PS2 era. It’s a catchy tune and […]
