We’ve been having a bit of an internal discussion on Chemical Brothers albums (what’s the best, etc) and the album We Are The Night came up, which was pretty universally panned when it first came out (p4k gave it a 3.8 amongst others). However, it is an overlooked album, that is a bit strange, that has seemed to just get better over time.
My night was spent in awe of the hilarious (and badass) throwback “reskin” of Far Cry 3. It’s full of purposefully cheesy cut scenes and one liners along with some amazing gameplay that involves robots, great weapons and dragons that shoot laser beams out of their eyes.
However, one of the most impressive things is the soundtrack which you can listen to in full below as well as purchase on itunes. The soundtrack is composed by Powerglove (a power-metal band that covers video game soundtracks).

One of my favorite albums to come out of last year (that I still play at least 3 times a week in full) is Wild Nothing’s Nocturne. Now that have a song and video out from their upcoming EP Empty Estate due out tomorrow (05/14).
Wild Nothing will be playing The Metro Gallery on June 10th with Twin Tigers. Tickets on sale now.
