Game: Scott Pilgrim vs the World Song: Anthem Composer: Anamanaguchi
Above: Anthem from Scott Pilgrim
In one of the smartest community-facing moves of all time, Ubisoft tapped glitch-rockers Anamanaguchi to score its Scott Pilgrim tie-in game. If you listen to TalkRadar, you know we love the film. If you read the game review, you know we're fond of it too. Now, let us say that amidst all our love for everything Pilgrim, the newly released soundtrack to the XBLA/PSN game may just be our favorite-favorite.
Above is the game's main theme, which in true 'guchi style is loaded with the past, present and future. Their music combines everything we loved about the sound of an NES with modern day mixing software and solid guitars to create something that sounds like it's from the year 3000. So god damn good.
Show some love by picking the album up on Amazon (DRM-free MP3s, people!) for a mere $10. Why should you, other than the music kicks all known asses? To send a message to Ubi and other publishers that we like when they acknowledge the community and actually react to what we read/listen to/have to say. Get on it!
