Free Stuff Friday: Zelda Music Indie OCReMix
AS YOU KNOW, today is “Black Friday,” the most buyingest, consumeringest day in the United States of America. People all over the country line up late at night at stores to buy buy buy, hoping to save a little money on some gadgets and gegaws and other shit. And they also go and scoop up the damn $200 PlayStation 3 bundle off of Amazon before I can, those dirty assholes.
With all this Black Friday madness all over the everywhere, it’s tough to find a bargain that hasn’t already sold—let alone anything free. So, with that in mind, I’m happy to present to you Free Stuff Friday, the Black Friday Edition.
Today, Joystiq has kindly posted a link to 25YEARLEGEND, a project bringing 18 indie musicians together to remix and recreate classic tunes from the Zelda game-universe. I’m downloading it right now (it’s a little over 1 gig…) so I can jam out to some solid Hyrulean tunes on the train-ride up to Manhattan later today. But from what I’ve heard in the samples I’ve sampled, it sounds pretty sweet.
The songs come courtesy of OverClocked ReMix, “an organization dedicated to the appreciation and promotion of video game music as an art form,” says their website. There, they’ve got just tons of remixed tunes, so once you’re done with the Zelda songs, be sure to check out the rest of the site and get your music on.
Check it out, crank it up, and eat some leftovers, y’all.
RUBIN—OUT. This party’s over.
