This is the place where you can confab about all the other stuff besides videogames.

Back when I was a grungy teenager, I bought Road Rash for my 3DO. I was already a huge Soundgarden fan, but I hadn’t heard of any of the other bands.
The very next day I headed into town to track down albums by Paw (Dragline) and Swervedriver (Mezcal Head). Great albums!

More recently I’ve been listening to soundtracks by Dave Housden (Thomas Was Alone), Jim Guthrie (Sword and Sworcery) and Ari Pulkkinen (Nex Machina).

There’s loads of great game soundtracks out these days!

I listened to a lot of 65daysofstatic after playing No Man's Sky, and as has already been mentioned, Hotline Miami turned me on to a whole genre which was great!

I tend to get this more with movies or TV though. I've discovered loads of bands through one of their songs being in a film or show I've been watching.
