VGM Wednesday (Friday) – “Com64” from “Sword & Sworcery”
“Com64” from Superbrothers: word & Sworcery EP, by Jim Guthrie and released in 2011.
This past week, I was recording the Episode 6 of the IRL Podcast with Francesca and Kyle. This particular episode was about the Humble Indie Bundle V, which I talked about last week. They also wanted to talk about the music, so they asked me to come on (from previous Into the Score experience, and I think that we’re always looking for reasons to podcast together because we always have a great time).
While we were discussion the music from Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, Francesca brought up a piece that she says “she can’t listen to on the bus anymore.” It’s a bonus track called “Com64” and, when I listened to it, I immediately knew why.
As soon as I started playing it, I started moving my body back and forth, bobbed my head and did some punch-dancing in my chair.
That four-on-the-floor bass (0:08)…
Then the kick (0:12), with the rhythmic noise tracks clicking on the upbeats (0:00)… GAH! What a solid foundation!
Then the synth groove comes in with the main riff with the bass in octaves… (:17)
Then the turnaround (0:36) right before the melody comes back in with octaves (0:41).
GAH! Dancing so hard!
I hope you’re all dancing so hard too! Also, it’s officially summer for teachers, giving rise to many days of crazy dancing.
Have the best time,
