The soundtrack to LISA: The Painful RPG can be preordered now

Back in February Ghost Ramp announced in an interview with PCGamer that they will be releasing the soundtracks to LISA: The Painful RPG as well as Crypt Of The NecroDancer. Yesterday Ghost Ramp tweeted that they would open preorders for LISA: The Painful RPG today – and now that time has come!

The game was developed by Dingaling and the soundtrack was composed by Widdly 2 Diddly – both which are aliases for Austin Jorgensen. The release comes in 3 different variants – a special edition with 2LP picture discs that includes an enamel pin and an embroidered character patch, a regular 2LP picture disc version and a 2LP version with one disc on red/black split and the other on blue/black split color vinyl. The packaging for all three versions are identical and features brand new artwork by Karsten Schreurs (see below).

The soundtrack is priced at $50 for the special edition, $40 for the picture disc, and $35 for the colored version. It is scheduled to release on early October, 2016.

Preorder via Ghost Ramp’s online store here – special edition 2LP picture disc, regular 2LP picture disc, and 2LP colored variant.

David Earl’s Headlander Soundtrack will be released on vinyl

Very little detail on this, but it’s confirmed in the music video description to David Earl’s track “Methuselah” on YouTube that the soundtrack to Double Fine’s Headlander will be given a vinyl release:

‘Methuselah’ from the Headlander soundtrack by David Earl, available now on Steam, coming soon on vinyl!

No word on what label will release it (or if Double Fine will handle it themselves like they’ve done with Brütal Legend and Dropchord in the past) or when it’s scheduled to come out other than “soon”. I will update this post when more info is out, but in the meantime you can enjoy said music video below:

Spacelab9 to release “Assassin’s Creed: The Best of Jesper Kyd” picture disc

In a newsletter sent out today Spacelab9 announced that they will be releasing “Assassin’s Creed: The Best of Jesper Kyd” as a picture disc LP.

Jesper Kyd scored Assassin’s Creed 1, 2, Brotherhood and Revelations, and all four titles will be featured on this compilation LP.

It’s unclear if this is one of the vinyl releases that was announced by Sumthing Else Music Works last year. Sumthing Else have previously released records on their own, but it sounds likely that they are collaborating with Spacelab9 for this release.

The release date is currently listed as “TBA soon” and I will update this post as soon as more is announced.

Killer Cuts to receive a vinyl release via iam8bit

Ultra Combo – the official Killer Instinct website – have announced that the soundtrack to the first Killer Instinct game will be released on vinyl via iam8bit. The soundtrack is composed by Robin Beanland and Graeme Norgate and is titled Killer Cuts.

There will be three different versions of the soundtrack – one on Sabrewulf purple vinyl, one on Spinal clear vinyl, and a limited edition Fulgore green vinyl version. What’s special about the Fulgore version is that it will only be for sale during the EVO weekend (July 15-17) and after that it will be sold out forever. Additionally, people who purchase the Fulgore variant are also entered in a draw to win the custom-made Fulgore puppet used for the cover art. A download code for the digital soundtrack is included as well.

The artwork on these is done by Cory Schmitz, Ben Sifel, Austin James & Seth Cuddeback, while the puppets for the artwork has been done by Chelsea Bayouth.

As a nice little touch the records end in a locked groove on side A which will play the “c-c-c-combo breaker” shout.

All 3 versions we go up for sale on Friday via iam8bit’s webstore at 9am PDT and are scheduled to release in October. They can be preordered from iam8bit’s US store here or their UK store here.

Black Screen Records open preorders for the Velocity 2X soundtrack on vinyl

Black Screen Records teased this soundtrack a while back by posting a sound clip on social media of them playing the test pressing, but now the official announcement is out – Black Screen Records are releasing Joris de Man’s Velocity 2X soundtrack on vinyl.

The release will come on 2LP 180g vinyl with one disc on solid neon pink vinyl and the other on solid blue vinyl. The release also comes with an A2 poster with artwork from the game and an instant MP3 download of the digital soundtrack.

The release is scheduled to ship out on August 19, 2016, is priced at €24, and can be preordered from Black Screen Records’ store here.

But that’s not all – if you’re feeling adventurous you can also preorder a mystery bundle containing the Velocity 2X soundtrack + the next 3 soundtracks from Black Screen Records. This bundle is €80 and is slightly cheaper than buying the albums individually. On the downside they won’t ship out until November. The mystery bundle can be preordered here.

Ship To Shore PhonoCo. to release their first Taito arcade compilation “very, very soon”

Ship To Shore PhonoCo. tweeted a mockup of their previously announced Taito compilation today. It will feature music from Zuntata (the Taito Sound Team) and will be titled “Arcade Classics Volume One”.

It had previously been announced that we’d be getting some Night Striker music on vinyl and it looks like this is the release for that. In addition, this compilation will also feature music from the games Metal Black and Elevator Action Returns.

There are no specifics on a tracklist (other than what can be seen on the mockup label) and it appears that a solid blue color variant will be available.

No specific news on a release date either, but the mockup image was followed by the words “Coming very, very soon”, so I suspect we’ll be hearing more soon. I’ll update this post when more is announced.

UPDATE: The release will be priced at $25 and can be preordered from August 10 via Ship To Shore PhonoCo.’s webstore.
