Join Arecibo Radio Â for a GameFuel special presentation with Grant “Stemage” Henry for the “Where Good Marbles Go To Die” release party.Â Grant “Stemage” Henry, the manÂ behind several amazing bands such as Metroid MetalÂ and Yes, Mayhem, is also an accomplished solo artist who has composed forÂ indie games Alpha Squad and Radiant Escape.
Marble Madnesshighlights seven new tracks featuring various accomplished guests such as Disasterpeace, Kirby Pufocia,Â andÂ VikingGuitar.Â Â Stemage emphasizes the direction of Marble Madness when he states, “The Marble Madness soundtrack has a lot of variety, and that theme carries over to this album. Iâ€™ve actually been calling it a â€œcollection of remixesâ€ instead of an album, but things are really starting to flow together.”
Taking place onÂ June 2nd at 9 PM EST, Marble MadnessÂ will be played in full, along with many other surprises, such as the digital release of the album during the show itself. And if you haven’t tuned intoÂ GameFuel, Â you’re in for a treat. GameFuel is a game-centric show of hard-hitting music, particularly of the videogame and videogame-inspired variety, also featuring chiptunes and other original works every week, hosted by the ever exuberant KyleJCrb.Â Be sure to tune in to Arecibo RadioÂ this Saturday for an exclusive listen to what may very well be an awesome album.
Be sure to tune in for the live show, as this episode of Noise Channel will NOT be archived for later streams or downloads. Because the album will not be released until July, this event presents a unique opportunity to experience a special preview of whatÂ Rokko Chan SoundtracksÂ promises to deliver. Tune in by going to Arecibo RadioÂ and connecting to the live stream this Thursday.
Time to get with what could very well be one of the best releases of 2012! Open Circuit will be hosting an online listening party forÂ Cory Johnson‘s finalized version of the long-awaited The Legend of Zelda album tonight at 5 PM EST on Arecibo Radio:
Originally released as a collection of unpolished demo recordings in August 2011, Cory Johnson’s post-rock interpretation of the classic Zelda music took the internet by storm, garnering coverage from Destructoid, ScrewAttack, and more.
On Saturday, May 12th 2012, 5PM eastern, join Open Circuit on Arecibo Radio as we celebrate the long awaited debut of the finalized version of Cory Johnson’s album The Legend of Zelda.
This will be the first place to hear the full album which is currently slated to include not only songs from the demo album, but also new arrangements of Gerudo Valley, Outset Island, Tal Tal Heights, and more! After the listening party, the album will be available as a free / pay what you want download hosted on Cory’s Bandcamp page.
If you haven’t heard the awesome that is Cory Johnson, you can preview theÂ Lullaby EPÂ or his actual Legend of Zelda demosÂ for a preview of what to expect for this upcoming release.Â Mr. Johnson will be joining on-air for a quick interview during the show, so be sure to tune in as soon as possible to hear the both artist and album in all their glory. See you there!
JustÂ receivedÂ word from our friends over at Ubiktune that Ken “coda” Snyder, one halfÂ ofÂ yogurtboxÂ duoÂ (along with theÂ recently discussedÂ Steven “surasshu” Velema) that are known for last year’sÂ Tree of KnowledgeÂ album, will be releasing his solo debut album tracerÂ within the week:
As weÂ previously announced, a new debut albumÂ tracerÂ by coda ofÂ yogurtboxÂ fame will be released on May 3. This album will be released as ‘pay-what-you-want’ and will be available right after theÂ Noise ChannelÂ listening party. Noise Channel listeners will be the first to hear the album from start to finish and then download it immediately afterwards.
Be sure to join the party and get in on the chat with coda and the other listeners over atÂ Arecibo Radio. Start time is 10PM Eastern, 7PM Pacific, 6AM Moscow time or May 4th noon for JST. More details are revealed over at theÂ Facebook event page.
coda’s EPÂ will consist of four tracks that promise a “half hour of chiptune-infused prog rock madness”. Viewing the trailer above, we feel inclined to agree with this statement and are excited to listen to his fascinating interpretation of chiptunes, which definitely strays away from any traditional chip music we have ever heard. Be sure to head over to Ubiktune or yogurtbox’s Bandcamp for tracer this Thursday,Â May 3rd.

HostedÂ by Kyle â€œKyleJCrbâ€ Crouse, Larry â€œLiontamerâ€ Oji, and N. â€œSuraidaâ€ Carbo, Nitro Game InjectionÂ has exclusively partnered withÂ Arecibo RadioÂ to bring the show back to a live audience, so be sure to tune in every Sunday at 5 PM EST if you’re looking to get your weekly VGM fix.
Just finished a new tune. I called it “Phantom Bracelet” in honor of the 21 and over wristband I had to wear for the entirety of MAGFest X. It still feels like it’s there as I type this. You canÂ download the song here, or find it in the /single/ folder. MAGFest was awesome, as usual.
We don’t normally do a write-up for singles, but we have to say that “Phantom Bracelet”‘s synthpop wobbles get us going a little too much. Shown with the kind ofÂ quality that this song delivers, we definitely hope that this is a sign of good things to come from OverCoat. Be sure to tune in to his show Radio OverCoat on Arecibo Radio every Wednesday from 10 PM – 12 AM EST. We guarantee that you won’t be disappointed.
