3 out of 5
Label: WéMè Records
Produced by: Andy Jenkinson
A bit too slight to be something you’d revisit frequently, the chiptune-y soundtrack for an (imagined?) motion picture is actually pretty amazing, milking a whole bunch of stylistic variations out of a main bouncey tune. And though the cover and introductory film “clip” certainly suggest this to be a joke project, the music, taken in its soundbyte format, is interestingly affecting! From the sweet ‘Crisps in Love’ themes to the appropriately dark ‘Fear Theme’ and the beat-pummeling ‘Madness Theme,’ Jenkinson does his faux film proud and gives it a full assortment of emotions. But it’s too dang short – the tracks range between forty seconds to two minutes – to really make a big enough impact to spin it up too often.
Evidence of the inexhaustible source of interesting music that is Jenkinson.
