Unoriginal Soundtracks #90: Super Hexagon

Every other Wednesday, I share a playlist of songs tangentially related to a single game or series. Songs about alien sex for Mass Effect, world leaders for Civilization, and so on. Make requests to @USPodcast on Twitter.

Super Hexagon is a fast paced gauntlet-running game with a chiptune-techno soundtrack. There's no techno here, but this playlist is full of funk, punk, and pop about geometry.

Shuffled #59: The Long Play

Every other Wednesday either Matt or Alex C-Y share their love of music in an assortment of ways. Shuffled is a podcast whose format is as varied as their tastes in music, so hopefully you won't ever be bored and everyone can find something to enjoy.

The average length of song these days is somewhere around 3 minutes (Ed. Note: This is 100% a guess). The average length of the songs on this week's podcast is about 9 minutes (Ed Note: Somewhere thereabouts). I suggest tucking in for the long haul on this one, because while the playlist only has 9 songs in it, the show is a well over an hour (Ed. Note: 1 hr 31 mins and 18 sec to be exact).

Shuffled #58: Somewhat Random

Every other Wednesday either Matt or Alex C-Y share their love of music in an assortment of ways. Shuffled is a podcast whose format is as varied as their tastes in music, so hopefully you won't ever be bored and everyone can find something to enjoy.


Sorry for the delay. It's just been too gorgeous outside all week and I have been spending most of my time out and about. Here is a really quick seven track fix to get ya through the weekend. A lot of it is in instrumental form, so if that is your style I think you will love some of the deeper cuts. Tyler Abstract also joins me once again, so be sure to check out his podcast Abstract:Japan. Click through to get some music!

Unoriginal Soundtracks #85: Threes


Every other Wednesday, I share a playlist of songs tangentially related to a single game or series. Songs about alien sex for Mass Effect, world leaders for Civilization, and so on. Make requests to @USPodcast on Twitter.

This podcast is all about goaty things like trampolines, tongues, and parties. Its mix of jazz, reggae, and hip hop is far more relaxed than a playlist about Goat Simulator should be.

Unoriginal Soundtracks #83: Titanfall

Every other Wednesday, I share a playlist of songs tangentially related to a single game or series. Songs about alien sex for Mass Effect, world leaders for Civilization, and so on. Make requests to @USPodcast on Twitter.

Titanfall is set in a hellish future where superhuman pilots and giant robots wage war for oil. Unsurprisingly, it inspires a playlist with its fair share of metal.
