Happy February, folks!

This month, I wanted to shed some light on a really cool and inspiring Atari ST creation I came across this week. Set free to the world on January 24, 2018, ‘Escape Return’ is both a digital and vinyl release by Swiss artist, STU. I listen to a lot of music and, friends, this one really captivated me.

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.
