LMH Mixtape #48: Keith Apicary and Nathan Barnatt

Dear Users, do you remember your first LMH episode?  KeyGlyph does.  It was Episode 48!  Keith Apicary and Nathan Barnatt both visited the headquarters way back when, and they each brought a list of games; from those games the boizz compiled a decidedly Sega-heavy setlist of tunes, which you can now listen to in mixtape form, several years later, as compiled by KeyGlyph.  In some weird kind of way it's like things have just come around full circle. Try to fight off the motion sickness, and enjoy!

Episode 180: Rise

Episode 180 is about various things “rising” and loosely follows the story of an army of robots that rise up and attempt to take down the human race.  Brent and Rob also record this episode in a studio building frequented by the likes of Beyonce, Puff Daddy, and Robin Thicke, so an LMH thanks and salute to those guys for breaking things in for the Chiki Chiki Boyz.  Full track listing below.

It's the Taito focus!  And for those of you who finish this mixtape and find yourselves craving more, you're in luck: last week Taito's house band, Zuntata, made more than 3,000+ of their songs available for streaming through Apple Music.  We couldn't have planned this better if we'd tried!

LMH Mixtape #46: Role-Playing Games

The Legacy Music Hour used their first RPG focus to dig up some lesser-known music in the genre, to discuss cart blowing, and to congratulate their listeners in greeting-card format.  After enjoying this mixtape's isolated tunes, be sure to check out user Zeke Sharp's recreation of said LMH greeting card to congratulate yourself on whatever awesome stuff you've been up to lately.
