LMH Mixtape #207: Homework

Don't let the episode title worry you, this homework doesn't suck.  Your only assignment this week is to listen to the mixtape and enjoy the fine selection of tracks from this free play!  "Building The House" from Richard Scarry's Busytown is a fun minimalist piece with snappy percussion.  "Injured" from Tecmo Super Bowl II: Special Edition makes great use of the Genesis' strengths with some really smooth bass and of course the pumped up energy you've come to expect from a sports track.  There's a lot to dig into here, but don't stress, there won't be a test afterwards, so just have fun with it.  Class dismissed.


Instant Favorite: Langrisser II - Soldier
Another Favorite: Falsion - Narrow Road (Stage 3)
Classic Junko Tamiya: Street Fighter 2010: The Final Fight - Wetland (Planet 4, Area 1)

LMH Mixtape #206: Halloween (Live)

For Episode 206, the boizz recorded at the Bit Bar in Salem, Massachusetts, presenting in front a live audience of LMH users.  A very on-theme track for this Halloween episode is "Werewolf Form" from the game Werewolf: The Last Warrior.  Can you spot the really cool feature in that track that Brent describes as "elevators"?

Stage Theme 4 from Super Glove Ball is a classic David Wise track with an excellent break down part, and of course it also features David's signature style use of the noise channel to simulate rock drums.  While not all of these tracks are monster themed, they are all fantastic, so prepare yourself for a totally wicked ("radical dude") mixtape.


Instant Favorite: Werewolf: The Last Warrior - Werewolf Form
Another Favorite: The Lawnmower Man - The Shop Building
