File under MUST DOWNLOAD!! This absolutely GORGEOUS new post-rock/britpop take on the main Chrono Trigger theme comes from none other than JJT himself, whose new album with his band, The Roof Beam Carpenters, Golden Hill, JUST went on sale yesterday!! I especially dig the second & third tracks, w/ "College Avenue" having some super-catchy hooks & background vocals - be sure to check it out & show Jon some support!
"It's been a minute since I've worn my remixing hat. Thought I'd combine my love of '00s-era Britpop with my love of Chrono Trigger and see what happened. This happened.
Also, I'm releasing a record with my band The Roof Beam Carpenters. Check it out at http://theroofbeamcarpenters.bandcamp.com and https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/golden-hill/id892865159."
I'm a huge fan of Jon's stuff, and his arrangement of "Big Blue" will always have a special place in my heart, but now it'll have even more company, as this unfamiliar take on a familiar theme breaths new life & adds some rawness & immediacy to an already fantastic melody. Larry writes:
"There's grittiness in the production, yet the overall feeling of this piece was mellow and smooth. It's pretty contemplative music, so I'm interested in reading what kind of imagery and feelings it conjures up from fans. IF it were thrown into a Chrono game or anime, it'd make great end credits music. I hope Yasunori Mitsuda would enjoy this take on the main theme, especially for how different it is from the many others out there.
It's great to hear how far Jon's come as a musician, as his debut electronic take on "Frog's Theme" back in 2003 was cool for its day, yet also gave no clue as to what he'd evolve to more than a decade later. Whether it's piano or rock, his sound truly is something worth sharing. I hope everyone in the community will buy and pimp his new original album with The Roof Beam Carpenters, because it's tremendous and Jon's a hell of a singer-songwriter. "San Fernando" is a personal favorite of mine, and all of Golden Hill is well-written and super-polished.
P.S. The 7-part video webseries about the fundraiser for Golden Hill was hilarious. Jon's legitimately got a career in comedy if he wants it. WATCH IT!"
Introing with an acoustic guitar riff that could be mistaken for Oasis, the shimmering & resonant EP that enters on lead sets the tone, and drums/electric/bass just layer in beautifully. The art here is balancing multiple competing textures, all of which have a certain amount of dirt/grime on them, without things just feeling cluttered and chaotic - and Jon nails it. Short but sweet @ 3'28", it'll be over before you're ready for it to end - just like the game. Unforgettable & timeless work from JJT, this is one that I'll have in steady rotation for years to come!
