I hope Joshua forgives me, but I'm gonna keep this one short & to the point: It's Morse, it's SOTN, it's from Sonata of the Damned, and it's awesome. Some day I hope these wandering Latinas meet up with the mamacitas from Frank's valley for some girl-on-girl, castlevania-on-zelda action, but until that fateful day, enjoy some more jm. The artist writes:
"Here's another arrangement that was slated to be released on Resurrection. I wasn't happy with where it was at the time, so I decided not to release it. 'Wandering Ghosts' was one of my favorite source tunes from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, so, at the time, taking a stab at it was a no-brainer, and after 2 months of a love/hate relationship with the arrangement, I'm finally free of it!"
Emancipation, artistic or otherwise, is almost always a good thing. If you're following along at home, yes, it seems increasingly likely that the entirety of this EP will end up being posted as individual mixes here on OCR, which is both an exercise in deja vu AND a testament to the consistency & quality that jm brings to his game. Let me throw in some adjectives & phrases that actually describe the music, just so I'm not slacking: excellent guitar, upbeat jazz/latin/disco vibe, energetic ensemble brass, organ hits, riffs, licks, & slides, and - it's jm, right? - a funky, Weather Report-ish bass. That's all I'm gonna say, and that's all I need to say - grab it if for some reason you haven't already!
