Members of the 8 piece Video Game Music Band “Do A Barrel Roll” joined us last night for a great fun time. This band was great fun to talk to as we covered all topics such as music production, favorite experiences from the road, gaming lineage, and so much more! We discovered that 7 string Violinist Ayalisse dropped her Sega Genesis controllers behind a wall and that was the end of her gaming days for a number of years!!
World Debut Track – Can’t Let You Groove That, Star Funk
Do A Barrel Roll pulled no punches when it comes to their musical talent, stating that the way they do their albums is exactly the experience you will hear live. They talked the talk, shots were fired, but this band backed up every word they said when we played their new song, “Can’t Let You Groove That, Star Funk” from the upcoming album, BOSS RUSH.
This seven minute song is a jaw dropping medley seamlessly transitioning between scores with note perfect instrumentation and one of the highest quality production values I’ve heard in a VGM album.
Long story short, Do A Barrel Roll is my pick for the band to watch in 2014.
