RIYL: Nico Niquo, Persona

Label: Always Human Tapes

I’m all about this. Especially since I’m playing Persona 5 right now – get it if you don’t already have it. The soundtrack, and frankly everything else, is something else to behold. Maid of Gold feels ripe and ready to go with a JRPG of your choice. It’s practically asking to be a game soundtrack, especially with each track having a stage number next to it. Maid of Gold mixes the lovable 80s kitsch you’ll find in any vaporwave/futurefunk track and spaced out, kinetic, honeyed synth jams that would fit in with loading music or cafe music in a JRPG. Unfortunately, Maid of Gold isn’t a real game but you want it to be. This has an air of familiarity to me, and takes me back. My rose-tinted glasses aren’t blinding me – this album’s actually a joy to listen to outside of those associations. If I could compare it to something non-video game related, I’d compare it to a softer version of Kode9’s Nothing.
