Swimfail, and the Major Arcana Soundtrack

Josiah Tobin‘s posting again, and he has something of an announcement. He’s selling his “Self-Centered Tales From The Project That Failed” album for $10 CAD on his site.

You can download it for free if you want, but do support him if you can, I’m sure he’ll appreciate it 🙂 If you haven’t heard it yet, here’s a sample (and one of my favourite tracks from the album):

Greyhound:

This seems like a good opportunity to post about something that’s long overdue – in February of last year Josiah composed the soundtrack to my tarot card inspired RPG Major Arcana. I never managed to release much more than a very basic demo, and at this point the project is well and truly on the long finger. I don’t know when or if I’ll ever return to working on Major Arcana, but it’s about time people heard its excellent soundtrack!

I guess I’m a little biased, but I think it’s awesome – especially considering that most of it was created in less than two weeks. I still have the tracks on my MP3 player to this day to listen to from time to time.

You can download all seven tracks in one 30Mb zip file here, or alternatively listen to them streaming on this page!

    Obligatory “It sucks because it’s old” comment from the artist! 😛

    …Hmm, listening again, there are a few tracks I’m still fairly happy with. Odd, my opinion of it seems to change a lot. Well regardless, I can do a lot better now if you need me again. 🙂

    Err, the soundtrack, not the album, hah.
