Megaman 25th Anniversary Celebrated Right!

Because who remembers anything about the Megaman game series except the music?

Literally one of the most inspired soundtracks ever on 8 bits.

In fact, Capcom is celebrating the anniversary with not one but two albums worth of tribute music.

Mega Man Rocks, a modern rearrangement of lots of megaman tracks,
(Featuring one of my favorites, Mega Ran.)

and a release by popular game music resource OCRemix,

They're both really good. Check it out.

Hop Along - Sister Cities

One of my favorite bands, from one of my favorite crowd funded music collaborations.
This beautiful shrieking should be more famous than it is.

Fitz and the Tantrums - More Than Just a Dream

Looks like a heart. Sounds like a time machine.
First things first, this record shouldn't exist. It literally came from the 80's through as-of-yet undiscovered scientific means. I tried burning it with fire, and banishing it to the negative zone. I cursed it with a mouse skeleton and some incense, and then I eventually broke down and finished listening to it. It made me regret the third and fourth sentences.

This record is pretty great. It's bleeding soul, and echoing great rhythms from a time when music was literally supported by a platform made of cocaine-mortared bricks of more cocaine.
