MIDI Week Singles: "In Case of Trouble" - Bastion (PC)

"In case of trouble" from Bastion (PC)
Composer: Darren Korb
Game Developer: Supergiant games

Choosing a single can be tricky business.  For example, albums are often front-loaded with the catchiest songs coming first.  However, if you stop there, you may miss the best stuff on the album.  Still, that said, I'm going to go with track 2 from the Bastion soundtrack.  I'm just a sucker for jangly acoustic guitars,  and I like how this song isn't in a hurry, waiting a full minute before the larger arrangement kicks in.  As with much of the soundtrack, Darren Korb does a great job mixing melody and ambiance.  

I have been toying with the idea of doing a song from the Bastion soundtrack for some time.  But it was last weeks single from the 'Gun' soundtrack that tipped me over.  Bastion is heavily influenced by western sounds, but uses them in a different way from Gun, mixing in electronic sensibilities and what sounds like the 'arabic scale' at times.  Bastion is another score from one of those fantastic Humble Indie Bundles.
