New Zealand artist Module’s soundtrack for Sidhe Interactive’s spangly Breakout/Arkanoid variant Shatter cunningly and curiously managed to sound simultaneously retro, contemporary and futuristic. Such devilry.
More importantly it was toe-tappingly, grin-inducingly compelling, and elevated a damn fine albeit (deliberately) old-fashioned game into an essential one.
Almost every one of the thirteen featured tracks is a winner but my personal pick is probably this one, which invokes Tangerine Dream, Daft Punk and shades of Commodore maestro Chris Huelsbeck.
Meanwhile over at Bandcamp $2.99 will get you a download of the music or you can pony up $34.99 for a highly desirable signed limited edition vinyl copy.
