That Tachibana track has a similar chord progression to a Donkey Kong 2 track

just dropping in here in case anyone wanted to know and was not aware that Chip Tanaka (who worked on the music for Earthbound and a bunch of other Nintendo games) has a new album out on Bandcamp

https://chiptanaka.bandcamp.com/album/domingo

(think I'd missed this thread before, will be checking out the youtubes now - or once I've finished listening to Tanaka's Snoopy Concert music for Super Famicom/SNES. Earthboundish vibes plus Vince Guaraldi "Linus & Lucy" motif all over the place)

(yeaahhh I stole both these from a Frank Cifaldi tweet, hat tip etc)

L. Prague de Scamp (a passing spacecadet), Sunday, 19 July 2020 14:28 (two years ago) link

Beautiful Wikipedia sentences of our time:

Among specific musical influences, Tanaka has cited Brian Wilson, Randy Newman, Stackridge, Yabby U, the Flying Lizards, Prince, Lalo Rodriguez, My Bloody Valentine, Frank Zappa, Keiichi Suzuki, Hal Willner's various artists compilations, Sly Dunbar, Jah Wobble, and the Slits.

just found out about this, new arranged versions of various earthbound tunes from keiichi suzuki himself released this year. he provides vocals too

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJMnWEezS8E

probably the most proto-earthbound i've heard from suzuki's previous work

i love this video that highlights one of hip tanaka's idiosyncratic compositional techniques

this song by miki nakatani and ryuichi sakamoto has a certain ethereal earthbound-y quality, i think

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1ShKUHmnQU

missingNO, Sunday, 17 October 2021 14:50 (one year ago) link

oh, that's blocked for me but now I'm curious. I love that first nakatani album that sakamoto produced. which one? "chronic love"?

(⊙_⊙?) (original bgm), Sunday, 17 October 2021 19:30 (one year ago) link

oh that's annoying, this one should work

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNKjgrE1G0I

song in question is track 2, 雨だれ ("amadare" ["raindrops"])

i think this is her best album, futuristic micropop w/ impressive production work from sakamoto and nobukazu takemura. love the peak y2k aesthetic / gen-x soft club cover art

^Excellent pull, has both the longing sweetness of something like "Smiles and Tears" AND a touch the weirdo electronica that soundtrack does so well. Also thank you for making me aware George Riley has a new album out!
