Random Encounter is a band I’d like to hear more from, if the amazing quality of this cover from Final Fantasy VI is any indication. They absolutely nail this song. SO GOOD. Taken from their album Unavenged. You can sample their entire back catalog at their Bandcamp (something I need to do myself!).
I recently revisited Shovel Knight (it’s marvelous) and after my initial pick from this post’s cover band Lame Genie didn’t pop up on Youtube (their sublime StarTropics cover), I decided to go for my #1 pick, which is their take on “Strike the Earth”. SO GOOD. I just discovered that the band has their music…
Holy shit this is an amazing “Secret of the Forest” remix. I was sampling Tom’s work and came across this track and the moment it started I knew it was something special. Splendid. Just splendid.
If you want to hear one of the best acoustic remixes I’ve ever heard of a video game tune, give this a listen. I love the original, but Jamie Maxwell takes it on such a sensational journey with his acoustic guitar…just about perfect.
This glorious mix of Xenoblade themes from Super Smash Bros. (with the stirring title music thrown in for good measure) is amaze to the ing. From start to finish, Eric Scerri and his guests deliver one of the finest remixes I’ve ever come across, and I’ve heard a good many. Kudos!
