Very rarely do you find a video game with a soundtrack that just makes you want to pause the game, sit back, and listen. PixelJunk Eden is one of those games. Now… don’t get me wrong. PixelJunk Eden is a fantastic game. Probably one of the best downloadable games on the Playstation 3 But the soundtrack is in a league of it’s own. Both relaxing and catchy, its easy to lose track of time whether you’re listening to the music or actually playing the game. And if you don’t want to download here, you can find it for three or four dollars in the Playstation store. And if we’re lucky, Baiyon will release some new music in the near future.

Very minimalistic album. Soft, lush electronics mixed with what sounds to be like wind chimes and a vacuum cleaner or the ocean make this album a unique experience. Recommended for studying or reading.

Hey there. My name is Teddy, and I like music. I used to run Geroni Listening, but I got tired of it (it’s very amateurish and was more of an experiment). I live in Birmingham, AL, as seen in the header above. If you live in B’ham leave a comment and we can talk about our wonderful city and it’s sometimes-up-to-par scene. I hope this blog and it’s eventual many contributors will go places and do wonderful things. Now onto the music…
Atlas Sound is skinny man Bradford Cox and Bradford Cox only. This is his first true solo album, though he has released hundreds upon hundreds of songs in his lifetime. Let The Blind is a look into Cox’s mind and stories. It’s very cold and distant as compared to his newer album Logos. Cox said when he wrote Let The Blind he took riffs and looped them, and improvised a lot of the vocal parts and harmonies. The result is a very effective blend of not-over-the-top shoegaze and lush pop. Highly recommended.
