wrapped-in-the-covers-this-is-halloweenLast night I said I was going to do Marilyn Manson this week because who better to focus on this week? But then when that search came up dry I sat and wondered what other song really captured the spirit of Halloween and well, here you go…From one of DIsney’s most interesting and visually stunning movies ever…”This Is Halloween” from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

farewell-nick-wan-dainty-review.jpgIt’s been a couple weeks since I’ve had time to sit down with my Sega and take in some Columns 3, but luckily I had Farewell, Nick Wan’s Dainty to fill the void. It’s not because it’s music that filled a musical yearning but more so because it sounded like some of the music you’d find throughout classic video games.

Chiptune music is something that still boggles my mind and I’m sad I didn’t think to get into that. Video games is a huge industry and the diehards love everything about it from the graphics to the sounds. So it’s no surprise that artists like Farewell, Nick Wan exist. Right off the bat I was tossed into that techy sound with “Still Afraid” and it didn’t stop there. There was the quick “With Me” and the rightfully titled “Winners and Losers.” I liked it though when things were ruffled a little. You had a Spanish flare in “Lies” and then got some rock with “Dainty.”

If you’re a gamer who is captivated by every aspect of sport, especially the music, than I suggest you check out Farewell, Nick Wan. You’ll love that he takes chiptune and adds his own eccentricities to the mix. You can check out Dainty, out now.
