Kuma’s Quick Shots #24 ft. Super Robotic Encounters and Svetlana

Posted by

Sup, ChipWINners, and welcome back to Quick Shots! This month, I have two very cheerful, funky albums from two very different parts of the globe to help kick off your summer right. One is from an artist who’s ready to go out with a bang, the other is from someone whose career is like a juggernaut: it just can’t be stopped! With that in mind, I cordially invite you to sit back, relax, and join me as I review music by veterans Super Robotic Encounters and Svetlana.

Kuma’s Quick Shots #22: Libla, Mint℠, & SemiProcastinator

Posted by

Welcome back to Quick Shots: the monthly album review column in which I seek out some of the newest music the scene has to offer and do my best to help you determine if something is worth your time.  This month, I have three albums from some lesser known artists who offer unique listening experiences from one another.  One wants to see you get down on that dance floor and strut your stuff. The second wants to share a moment in time in with you as they reflect on their life in relative solitude. The last wants you to indulge in some work they’ve contributed to an upcoming game that is just as easy to groove to as it is to zone out to it.  With such a wide offering of experiences on the table this month, I think we should jump right in.  Join me as I dissect sophomore releases from Libla and SemiProcastinator, and take a closer look at Mint℠’s third LP.

Kuma’s Quick Shots #21: Khaz and Destruction Luster

Posted by

Happy New Year, everyone! Welcome back to Quick Shots: the album review column where I dissect the latest offerings from the scene to help you determine what’s worth listening to.  This month, I have two EPs to that embody very different aesthetics within the scene.  The first is an endearing cross pollination of pop culture that feels slightly tongue-in-cheek.  The second is a more serious attempt at capturing the glorious nostalgia of a niche within PC gaming that is often overlooked. These albums both succeed at capturing the attention of their intended audiences, and I’d be remiss if I didn’t take the time to showcase them properly.  So let’s not waste anymore time. Join me as I delve deep into work from newcomer Khaz and multi-faceted veteran Destruction Luster.

Kuma’s Quick Shots: Round 17

Posted by

Hey, ChipWINners! Welcome back to Quick Shots, the album review column in which I break down some of the latest albums the scene has to offer then give a numerical tl;dr to help you determine if they’re worth your time.  For this month’s edition, I have two highly intriguing records that are more subdued than anything I’ve reviewed this year.  One is a short debut EP from an artist best known for his illustrations on tumblr and Youtube. The other is from a musician that combines traditional instrumentation and stirring vocals to craft somber, heartfelt folk music.  Both offer work that’s rather converse for the time of year, as introspection is not often an emotion associated with the summer.  This divergence from the norm, however, is what made me check them out, and I think you’ll find yourself wanting to, as well, as I was quite surprised with what I found.  Let’s not waste any more time.  Sit back, relax, and join me as I take the time to review music from newcomers Rod-Scorpion and Three-Year Day Job.
