The lovely peeps at Hewson gave me a chance to listen to their upcoming new album “Hints & Tips for Videogame Pioneers” which will be out at the end of this week.  This album comes from Hewson Consultants, responsible for some rather popular c64 games such as the ones included here.

Have enjoyed repeat listenings of the album on and off over the last week, Even though there are a few tunes on there that i’m not familiar with the originals (including Uridium, yes yes I know) you don’t need to love the originals to appreciate whats on offer here. So lets see what treats lie within …album1.. Firelord Orchestral remix by Ben Dalglish and Max Hall, a tune i’m not familiar with that much but have heard versions before on Slay Radio live shows. Very well put together tune.

2.. Uridium by Press Play on Tape, again not hugely familiar with the tune (Kitty freaked out when I mentioned that) but am very familiar with Press Play on Tape as I own a few of their albums. If you like PPOT or just the tune in general, you will be enjoy this offering. Good rock song with added lyrics.

3 / 4.. Avalon by Steven Turner and Dragontorc by Norbert Walker, another couple of tunes I don’t know that well but again very well done. Avalon being a very mellow guitar tune and dragontorc being more lively.

5.. Battle Valley from Tess & Tei. ohhhh now this I REALLY do know. Battle valley was a game I would load just to hear the music. Very well done remake that has been done here with lyrics. The singing fits in very well.

6.. Rana Rama by Steve Turner, a short little ditty from a game again that I don’t know that well. Nice little guitar number.

7 / 8 / 9.. Eliminator by Jeroen Tel, Exolon by Ash Read and Stormlord 2 by Matt gray. these are 3 games I only know by the tunes, and it superbly done by Tel, Read and Gray.

10.. Ok who DOESN’T know Cybernoid II by Jeroen Tel? a fantastic 7 and a half minute remake of the classic c64 tune. Will make no secret of my love for JT’s work, with his c64 tunes dazzling me as a kid.  Was one of the people who did what I called “epic” tunes, long songs that were amazing from beginning to end.  And as shown here, translates to a modern format very well.

11.. Firelord : Acoustic Live version. As before only know it do to radio plays but again as before a very well done tune.hewsonSo there have have it, a really enjoyable album that was a pleasure to listen to. The review may be a little brief but have never had the opportunity to review a music album before. But hope it wont be my last one.  I may only know a portions of the tunes, but even taking the music just for what it is without know the background and history, it is well worth the time to pick up and listen too. (ohh, and if a second album is done, Zamzara needs to be included *nudge*)

The album can be purchased from the normal Digital channels such as iTunes / Google Play / Amazon and bandcamp and even a bunch of sites that ive never heard of :)
Also if you buy from iTunes you can get 40% off too.

Pre-order here http://www.hewsonconsultants.com/hewson-shop The site also contains a few previews if you want to sample first.

The album is released Friday 8th May.
