Podcast: NLFM Episode 12: Ch-ch-changes

Posted by Jon Wahlgren

New year, new podcast

Changes are a-brewin' with NLFM this year as the show enters its second season.

First of all, we're shrinking and growing at the same time. Is your mind blown yet? Tell the rest of the goo in your skull to stay calm, as what this means is that while the average episode will shrink in length, we're ditching the whole monthly schedule shenanigans and going weekly. Yes, weekly.

For the time being, at least. Until we collapse under the weight of a regular schedule.

Second, to help make contributions and requests easier, we've got ourselves our very own
Soundcloud dropbox. So if you've cooked up an original tune and want us to play it on the show, just drop it in the box. As the name implies.

So yeah, new year, new podcast! Here's what Baby New Year dragged along this time, the scamp:

1. Ryo Nagamatsu — Melty Monster Galaxy (Super Mario Galaxy 2, Wii)
2. Psilodump — Metronomnom (Metronomnomnom)
3. Naoki Kodaka — Title Theme (Journey to Silius, NES)
4. Bryface — Thought Process
5. The J. Arthur Keenes Band — Colour Television
6. Matt Harwood — Area 51 (3-1) (Alien Hominid, Gamecube/PS2/Xbox/XBLA)
7. Kenji Yamamoto — Music Madness (Donkey Kong Country Returns, Wii)

In case you've missed out on the fun so far, NLFM generally focuses on music from games playable on Nintendo consoles and handhelds, which, thanks to the Virtual Console, also includes the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive and Master System, Turbografx-16, Neo Geo and Commodore 64. It's not all games either as we highlight chip musicians and albums we really like, as well as your own original gaming compositions.

To prevent the death of freedom that comes with missing episodes, subscribe to our Podcast feed (using iTunes) or download it using this direct link. You can also find us on iTunes (don't forget to rate us!) and drop requests or suggestions in our Soundcloud dropbox, so show the podcasts some love as there is plenty more good stuff lined up for the future.

Why yes, my mind has been blown.
Is the drop-box only for user-made creations? Because I'm sure many of us would like to submit/request professional-grade songs.

The dropbox is for anything at all that you think would be a good fit for the show, so long as you hold the rights to upload it to the internet.

If you're planning to submit a song via the Soundcloud Drop-Box, PLEASE READ The Soundcloud Community Guidelines. Take special note of the paragraph under "Share content that you own the rights to"... this means that songs ripped from YouTube videos, songs from video game soundtracks, or anything else that you personally do not have permission to share over the internet are not kosher. Please follow Soundcloud's rules and do not upload works to which you do not hold the copyright.

If you would like to request a song you do not hold the rights to via Soundcloud, you are more than welcome to use the 'Send a Message' link to do so. Thanks, guys, and we apologize for the confusion. :3

It's nice to see NLFM taking a weekly approach. I always feel deprived of NLFM after two weeks of a monthly release.

EDIT: Crap, I submitted a song that I completely goes against SoundCloud rules. Sorry, TBD. My bad.

Nice idea setting up on soundcloud. I favourited you (mine is Awesometonia) so feel free to get any stuff from there you want, it's all original Rytmik compositions. That's just an open invitation I'll also put any songs I particularly like into your drop box for your consideration. I have a few Rytmik Rock Edition songs that I'll be uploading soon as well..would you be interested in those?

EDIT: Made an account and deleted my track. I shall now request instead. :)

lol, oddy... it's not your fault, and you're not the only one who said they'd done it/were gonna do it... just from now on, nobody do it again, y'know? the wording was confusing before, but hopefully everything has been made clear now so that we don't get in trouble with Soundcloud or anything :3

By the way I think the new format is 100 times better (well 97.6x but I'm rounding up). I found the old longer format a bit draining but this is quite refreshing and I'm looking forward to more frequent updates and more variety.

Here's an idea right off the top of my head, what about every now and then you could suggest a theme and people who like to compose music could all try their hand at that theme? (eg make your best mario remix)
