LMH Mixtape #95: Title Screen Music 2

Have you ever encountered title screen music so good, you had to put the controller down and just listen?  For episode 95 the boizz compiled fifteen more opening tracks that might have a similar effect on you -- and in mixtape form, you won't even have to worry about your impatient sibling mashing past the intro screens!  You gotta admit... that's pretty skitchin'.

Episode 214: Virgin

The word “virgin” is a sort of running gag throughout this episode.  Brent clears his throat while recording (apologies for that), Rob confirms his youthful presence and performs improvised spoken word poetry, and other than that, just playing some tracks and joking around as usual.  Virgin.  Full track listing below.

LMH Mixtape #94: Pirates

Arr, mateys!  Join the crew of Rob F. [the] Switchbeard and first mate Brentbeard as they set sail on the seas of pirate-themed VGM.  Far from a mixtape of sea shanties, the variety of musical aesthetics here might surprise you.  Who knew the life of video game pirates had so many different moods?

LMH Mixtape #93: Toys

Toizz!  This time Brent and Rob took us through the toy aisle for a sampling of games featuring licensed and unlicensed playthings, as well as tunes from toy-themed titles and levels in general.  Barbie proves she's a force to be reckoned with by capturing a full third of the setlist, and the Treasure Trolls track may inspire you to ad-lib a positive 80’s rap.  There's a lot of wholesome fun to be had here, so queue up this mixtape and get playing!

Episode 213: Sports 5

Another Sports focus!  Rob also gets some things off his chest in a major way.  Brent and Rob attempt to do sports commentary, but they do it in a unique way (one might say a bad way).  Also look out for a NeverEnding Story sing along and a discussion of “soccer” versus “football” in an English accent.  Full track listing below.
