February Songaday Day Four

EGO DAY FOUR: Bastion Soundtrack - In Case of Trouble
I can't rave enough about Bastion's soundtrack. It's downtempo when it can be, upbeat and exciting when it needs to be, an exciting Western/Frontier-inspired sound with those tech elements that make things perfect. Self-described as Acoustic Frontier Trip-Hop, the soundtrack to Bastion is awesome, and I highly recommend getting the whole thing.
Bastion, if you don't know it, is a 2011 indie game released for Xbox Live Arcade and PC developed by Supergiant Games. It's an action RPG set in a colorful and beautiful world, with a couple gimmicks to keep things new. For one, the narrator. The enitre game is narrated, every cool thing you do gets a little phrase. It's very in depth, and the narrator's voice is really good, so I'm a big fan of this. Another thing is the world appearing before you, paths floating up from the ether. Kinda annoying for finding your way, but it looks cool. But I'll save the rest about this game for when I inevitably get this wonderful game and do a review. The soundtrack has won a few awards, such as the Spike VGA for Best Soundtrack.
This song is the game's core song, played on the title screen and in the hub area (the titular Bastion). Other great songs include A Proper Story and Slinger's Song, which is my personal favorite.

BRO DAY FOUR: Ellie Goulding - Lights (Bassnectar Mix)
I know nothing about Ellie Goulding other than she released her song Lights semi-recently, it was remixed by some dude slightly more recently than that, and that she recieved pretty good reviews on her latest album.
