    Lots of unknowns this week, which happens when you're dealing with budget PS2 titles but regardless, plenty of jams for all the jammers in the house, including a ZUNTATA mood, a Manami Matsumae beachside bopper, something feel good from a very adult JRPG, a le bop from Le Bop, and of course, something dirty and jammy from the Personal Computer-98. And if you're a member of the Patreon, I have been slowly assembling mixtapes of all the After Dark episodes for your talk-free enjoyment.

    This week, we chill things out a bit...or a lot...because we've got tons of chill tracks from everything from Tetris clones to croquet to soccer RPGs to...well, visual novels, duh. Wouldn't be a Last Wave without at least two visual novels per episode. Deal with it.

Can‘t go wrong.

Always a good listen, whether you’re home on a Sunday morning, or driving down the coast.

Chillest and Illest

We love VGM of different stripes, but let’s face it 99% of the time we want the chill stuff. This is a great channel to run in the background while getting things done. Thanks, KVGM.

The Best VGM Podcast on the Planet

Hammock hits all my T spots, from the hilarious commentary to the silky smooth VGM jams. I look forward to listening to this podcast every week, and the amount of deep cuts and hidden gems in Hammock's selections are incredible! Even my friends who don't like video game music can't help but jam out to the Last Wave on KVGM.
