Owen - New Leaves

     New Leaves is the fifth full-length album by Mike Kinsella (Cap’n Jazz, Joan of Arc, American Football) of Owen. The album has been recorded over the past two years and many people have really anticipated this release since his last album, At Home With Owen. New Leaves has the sounds of earlier music of Owen. New Leaves stands out from all of his other albums because instead of songs about failed relationships, Kinsella has written songs on new beginnings. Between this album and his last, Kinsella has become both a husband and father, changing the music styles that reflect his emotions both lyrically and musically.
     Songs that got my attention: New Leaves, Good Friends, Bad Habits, Amnesia and Me. I think this maybe one of my favorites of this year’s releases. Some of the songs were once again recorded at his mother’s house. This time around there was a full band including his cousin, Nate Kinsella (Make Believe, Joan of Arc, Birthmark, Decembers Architects). Did your relationship end with someone close? Stop crying and you can

16 bit genius

Koji Kondo - Super Mario World (Disc 1)
Koji Kondo - Super Mario World (Disc 2)
Koji Kondo is a goddamn genius. These are beautiful pieces of work. Kondo stretched the 16 bit format to its limit with his compositions. Dude has been a legend in the gaming industry and I doubt that status is going anywhere. Here you'll find all of the music from the Super Mario Bros. franchise. There are a lot of sound effects included as well. Definitely worth checking out.
