Tips for Buying EarthBound

Evan sent this in the other day:

Greetings, Mato!

A local band a few towns over from me called Lost Woods just released their debut EP. They do rock covers of video game tunes, and I’ve been following them for a while. I suggested they cover some EarthBound tunes, and as luck would have it, they covered Snowman and Mother Earth from the MOTHER series, and they’re awesome! One can download the album from their tumblr, which features a whole heap of awesome covers from a bunch of Nintendo/Sega games.

Here’s their Snowman song, be sure to check out all their other ones here!

It seems that EB’s music is enjoyed so much, that people make it there own music.

“…they covered Snowman and Mother Earth from the MOTHER series…”

It seems the Mother Earth track is actually from EVO for the SNES.

AWESOME! Once it snows here, I will be doing a version of snowman on my ocarina.

@Nox The Mother Earth track is the Champion Battle theme from Pokemon Gold & Silver.

Also it seems a lot of the tracks on their site are mislabeled too.

OMG, the guy in the picture looks so familiar…. O.o

Great remix 😀

I think the people that don’t like this mix feel that way because they simply don’t like the genre.

Personally, this is a well-made remix. Definitely good.

This is totally great!
It has this inherent punky simplicity that makes it really strong.
Obviously the recording is not top-notch, probably just some guys in their garage, but it doesn’t change it for me.
