LMH Mixtape #18: Hirokazu Tanaka

Episode 18 made LMH history by featuring the first interview with a legendary VGM composer.  The focus was on none other than Hirokazu "Hip" Tanaka, who had graciously agreed to answer questions by e-mail.  Brent and Rob re-enacted the interview on the air in between their selected tracks, with Rob playing the part of the dignified Tanaka-san and Brent playing the roles of both boizz.  The original episode is definitely worth another listen, both for Tanaka-san's insight and Brent's Rob impression.

LMH Mixtape #17: Puzzle Games

Just as the puzzle genre covers a surprisingly broad range of topics (falling blocks, wandering rodents, time-traveling vikings), so do the games' soundtracks serve up a great deal of musical variety.  Rock, classical, new age, funk, hip-hop, and even industrial nightmare fuel find their place in this highly eclectic mixtape.
