2016 has been a pretty crappy year, but it wasn’t crappy for Turbo Button. I’ve updated the site with links to three new talks (from Vision Summit, GDC, and Oculus Connect) and two new game releases (Adventure Time and Floor Plan).

What I Listened To: 2013 Edition

Posted on Jan 6, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

This is normally when I put together a big list of games I played in the previous year, but while I’m working on that, I thought I’d share some of my favorite songs from last year, in pseudo-particular order. I get my music recommendations from some combination of friends, random bands that I get to see, Sirius XM Alt Nation radio, and Spotify. The songs are embedded below, but here’s a link to a Spotify playlist with them all too. Cage The Elephant – “Come A Little Closer” I wasn’t a big fan of their new full length on the whole, but “Come A Little Closer” hits all the right notes for me as a follow up to some of my favorite songs of theirs, like Back Against the Wall and Aberdeen.

I’m a big fan of the upbeat tempo, compared to what I’m used to hearing from them…I think it actually suits the vocals better than something like “Apartment.” New Politics – “Harlem” One of my guilty pleasure songs from the year. Don’t have much more to say than that. >_> Imagine Dragons – “Demons” Imagine Dragons exploded in popularity this year – I can’t turn on my TV without hearing “Radioactive” on a commercial. So while “Demons” hasn’t been ignored, it certainly hasn’t gotten the respect it deserved being on the same album. This is the only one between the two that has stayed on my playlists. Fitz and The Tantrums – “The Walker” It’s a happy song, and the world needs more happy songs. I gained extra appreciation for it when I found out the song’s lyrics are actually about a homeless guy who...
