It took a while, but the wait was worth it as I think it is our best mixed song so far. Yakuza is one of the darker songs off the album but one that we find hauntingly catchy. It is, so far, the only song on the album in 3/4 time and that uses the NES, OPL3, and SID chips within the song. The SID and OPL3 sounds were from a SammichSID and SammichFM respectively. We wanted to include the GameBoy but when we first started writing the song we didn’t have all the stuff needed to make and record music on it and found that it didn’t sound quite right (we were trying to shoehorn it in and it just didn’t work).
In any case, you can listen to and download the song in various places (such as SoundCloud, on the album page as well as most of the links on the right). You can purchase a high quality version of the song from BandCamp as well as pre-order the entire digital release of the album there if you like.
For the lazy, here it is. Right here in the blog post – thanks SoundCloud, we love you![soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/18117077″ params=”show_comments=true&auto_play=false&color=340080″ width=”100%” height=”81″ ]
