More NESBound Music!
A reader named Pete sent this in a while back: Hey Mato hows it going? There’s this criminally underrated VGM guitarist on youtube named Swiggles1987, and he’s a huge Mother fan, so he decided to make an album of Earthbound songs redone in a really cool jazz/blues style. The first two songs that he released are really good. I say it’s worth a look and maybe you could spread the w...Read More »
It’s that time again! Lots of mini-updates! Check ‘em out! Memories of Deleted Saves Luke Records says: Hello, I just read your anti-piracy Earthbound article and had flashbacks. As a child, my brothers and I played this game constantly. We worked our way to the last battle twice, but both times all of our saves were deleted. We had trouble winning the last battle, and it was usual...Read More »

Here’s what he says: My second album of Nintendo piano arrangements is finally available on Loudr.fm! Like the first, it prominently features the MOTHER series, including the following tracks: “Be...Read More »
I somehow stumbled upon this bizarre Japanese video with the NK Cyborg boss battle music and couldn’t NOT share it: I have no idea what’s going on. And that’s why I like it! (Although if anyone CAN explain, please enlighten me!) ...Read More »
Good ol’ Kyosuke has been around since the early days of EarthBound fan sites and has done tons of EarthBound-related projects over the years. Sometimes he’d make 3D models, sometimes he’d do music, he started the big EarthBound fluke craze back in the day, he’s made EarthBound-themed games for classes, he’s gone to Japanese MOTHER conventions and documented them for ...Read More »
A few months back gbev sent me an e-mail about a musical connection in MOTHER 3: Mother 3 clearly has a lot of recurring themes and similarities in its soundtrack, but I think I just picked up on a new one! Or at least, a new one to me. I did have to change the tempo a bit, but they were already in the same key. Check it out: Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play ...Read More »
Lollta sent an e-mail about the trumpet player in Onett: I’ve listening to old Japanese music name “Ieji” many time. Yesterday I’ve just realized that it sound like the music that Onett trumpet player play especially on 0.20-0.27 of the above clip. I don’t sure that other people will think the same thing or not. Yep, it’s the same music! Both the Ieji song and...Read More »
jdaster64, the Video Game Variations guy, recently sent me this Eight Melodies arrangement to share with other musically-inclined fans: Hey! I’m not sure if this deserves an article as there’s no finished product yet, but I’ve written a string-quintet arrangement of “Eight Melodies” with some influence from my piano arrangement and the vocal soundtrack version. Curre...Read More »
A good while back I posted about a fan-made music album by Jonathan “Jdaster64″ Aldrich that included really nice piano versions of MOTHER series music (see here). He has hopes of putting together an even bigger, better album now and has set up a small Kickstarter for it: For those of you who are into sheet music, he’s planning on releasing the sheet music for three of his MOTHE...Read More »
