    “The Last Wave” After Dark – Realize: Panorama Luminary (9/22/21)

    That's right, your eyes aren't deceiving you - this is, in fact, an episode of After Dark, our Patreon exclusive show. Because I figured, why not let the people take a sample from the candy jar? It's my wife's birthday, I'm feeling generous. For this episode, originally released on September 22, 2021, we headed to the Playstation 2 for some visual novel goodness in Realize: Panorama Luminary, with a fantastic soundtrack by M.S, Manack, OdiakeS, and Shinji Orito. Get ready to vibe the heck out! And if you like what you hear, please consider subscribing here!

Tekroiz ,

Super cool

A lot of obscure hidden gems in this for VGM, really underrated. Discovering this almost feels like finding a secret room in a video game.

Pete Grüble ,

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.
