Album of the Day 242: Particles EP by M.O.O.N.

https://m-o-o-n.bandcamp.com/album/particles-ep

2012 house EP from Lisbon, Portugal. A solid EP that runs longer than you'd think for such a short track list. "Plus Four" is such an odd track that I can't help but find captivating.

Vigor got a store page

"Outlive the apocalypse! Dive into intense Encounters and extract the most valuable spoils the Outlands have to offer! Loot, shoot, and build to become the absolute Outlander and explore the landscape of a post-war Norway in Vigor."

@lashman My first response was, "Doesn't Bohemia already have DayZ? They're competing with themselves?" But I guess this is more of a match-based Escape from Tarkov competitor than DayZ's persistent survival.

Album of the Day 241: Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54W8kktFE_o&list=PLHTo__bpnlYVFUoh6h0FgewYE6_7VSCki&index=1

1975 prog rock album. Pink Floyd's best album. Sorry Dark Side of the Moon, you're a great one, too, but this is a perfect album.

I know I usually dig for the less obvious albums, but I felt lazy this time. 😆

Album of the Day 240: #1 Record by Big Star

https://bigstar.bandcamp.com/album/1-record

1972 power pop/folk pop album from Memphis, Tennessee. An album that at times is rocking out power pop, and at other times is jangly acoustic folk ballads, yet the two don't seem at odds with each other somehow. Some great harmonies throughout the entire album. Also has "In The Street," famously covered by Cheap Trick for That '70s Show.

My picks: "Feel," "In The Street," "Thirteen"

Last week our friends brought out a lot of New to us games to play!

My favourites are Abducktion and The Shipwreck Arcana. Eerko's are The Shipwreck Arcana and Steampunk Rally!

Did you play any new games last week?

LadyMarth01,
@LadyMarth01@mstdn.games avatar

@BGStatsApp I love The Shipwreck Arcana! I feel like it's massively underappreciated. Fun little puzzle of a game, and the only board game I know of to support players dropping in and out.

Album of the Day 239: What's Your Damage by Hot Tub Boys

https://eyewitnessrecords.bandcamp.com/album/whats-your-damage

2020 outsider house album. A solid toe-tapping, head-bobbing album. Usually warm and relaxed, although "Off My Face" is a bit more driven and aggressive than the rest of the album.

My picks: "Yikes," "Wingwingwing"

Album of the Day 238: Super Metroid: The Atmosphere of Zebes by Ryan Roth

https://dualryan.bandcamp.com/album/super-metroid-the-atmosphere-of-zebes

2022 ambient album from Toronto, Canada. Ryan Roth has done a number of official soundtracks, so this unofficial one fits the tone of something that would work just fine in a game. Environmental sounds are present in the tracks, from mechanical hum to rain and thunder, filling out the atmosphere.

My picks: "Opening," "Brinstar Red," "Maridia"

Album of the Day 237: Relativity 2 by Lemaitre

https://lemaitremusic.bandcamp.com/album/relativity-2

2012 electropop/French electro EP from Oslo, Norway. Here's a Norwegian band whose so inspired by French house that even their name is French. (Although the name is taken from the Belgian astronomer Georges Lemaître, who proposed the Big Bang theory.) Catchy stuff, though.

My picks: "Splitting Colors," "Steady State"

I'm tempted to back the Millennium Blades kickstarter for the new mini-expansion, but considering I've played the game one (1) time since I got the last expansion it would probably be a waste. And I heard the soundtrack add on has a single card included with it and I'm not a fan of that.

LadyMarth01,
@LadyMarth01@mstdn.games avatar

@PaseoBaggage Millennium Blades is a game that I'd love to try, but I don't think I'm willing to buy it myself to get the chance to try it. What are your thoughts on it?

Album of the Day 236: After the Gold Rush by Neil Young

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ppMcqsg0Sw&list=OLAK5uy_l61knFHCT9-JvA88E172MSuaGZupcQwSc&index=1

1970 folk rock/country rock album. The front half of this album has an incredible run of some of the best of Neil Young's work—not to say the back half is bad by any means. "Tell Me Why" might be my favorite Neil Young song overall.

My picks: "Tell Me Why," "Southern Man," "Don't Let It Bring You Down"

Blow me, kobo have announced colour e-readers, finally.

BUT! I tried one from a different company earlier this year and it sucked. So I’m not sure how this will be different.

BUT! I love kobo and their devices are amazing so maybe this will be different.

LadyMarth01,
@LadyMarth01@mstdn.games avatar

@Sobtanian I have a Kobo Libra H2O that still works great and that I rarely use, yet I can't help but want a color screen to read comics on.

Not that I think upgrading would lead to me using it much more than I do currently. 😅

LadyMarth01,
@LadyMarth01@mstdn.games avatar

@Sobtanian @matt I'm glad to see advancement in the technology, but to be honest, I'll probably stick with physical comics for the most part. Not anywhere near as cheap, but then I'm not exactly an avid comic reader, making it less of a problem.

Album of the Day 235: Magic Machine by An Endless Sporadic

https://anendlesssporadic.bandcamp.com/album/magic-machine

2016 prog metal/prog rock album from Los Angeles, California. It's kind of a bizarre album, really, bouncing from one idea to the next. It could be jazz or funk or synthy prog—there's even a section that sounds like a MIDI march from a '90s game—then suddenly you'll find metal riffs interrupting it all. A fun, if odd album.

My picks: "Finding The Falls," "Sky Run," "Impulse II"

Album of the Day 234: Endless Summer by Fennesz

https://fenneszemego.bandcamp.com/album/endless-summer

2001 glitch/ambient album from Vienna, Austria. To paraphrase a YouTube comment: it's not a sunny beach in audio form, but a low quality jpeg of a sunny beach interpreted by someone who's never been to a beach. I was caught off guard when I first heard "Before I Leave" and discovered Robot Science's "Alaska" had heavily sampled it.

My picks: "Endless Summer," "Caecilia," "Before I Leave"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPCLFtxpadE&list=OLAK5uy_mr3aLJuPJvJve1bSwRl-8W4iN8uhGOr80&index=1

1971 prog rock album from London, England. Okay, everyone loves "Roundabout." But where's the love for the rest of the album? It's an incredible album the whole way through.

Except for "Cans and Brahms." Feel free to skip the "pesky contracts prevented a Rick Wakeman original" track. 😆

My picks: "South Side of the Sky," "The Fish (Schindleria Praematurus)," "Heart of the Sunrise"

Album of the Day 232: Risk of Rain 2: Survivors of the Void by Chris Christodoulou

https://chrischristodoulou.bandcamp.com/album/risk-of-rain-2-survivors-of-the-void

2022 prog electronic/prog rock OST from Athens, Greece. I have a few complaints about the DLC this soundtrack is tied to, but the music is definitely not one of them. Chris Christodoulou seems to be unable to do wrong.

My picks: "Once in a Lullaby," "They Might As Well Be Dead," "The Face of the Deep"

https://limneticvillains.bandcamp.com/album/replications
https://faircamp.radiofreefedi.net/limnetic/replications/

2022 alt rock/electronic album from Ireland. At times reminds me of Nine Inch Nails—"Vulture" in particular. "Digoxin" gives me some Battles vibes.

My picks: "Vulture," "Sad Gits," "Digoxin"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5j4W2Y7RPQ&list=OLAK5uy_n6ijURMv3LLKtMtt0G7y-hcA2GTSXSIaQ&index=1

1997 indie rock album from Stockton, California, rereleased in 2008 with outtakes, b-sides, parts of live shows, etc. from the same time period.

My picks: "Stereo," "Harness Your Hopes (B-side)," "The Killing Moon (BBC Evening Session)"

new pedal day! my first pedals actually.

i know these are “cheap” pedals, but i really wanted to just see how things go with something affordable before i invest a lot of money in fancier units. also, no fancy effects yet, but hopefully will just have more control over my sound beyond the pickup controls on the bass or the bass/mid/treble controls on the amp.

@mishamouse To be clear, while Behringer has been problematic, they also make some great cheap clones of out of production synths, and did eventually make good on a promise to donate synths (and money) to music-related charities. It's not as black-and-white "Behringer is bad" as people can make it out to be.
