Alexander "Siren" Brandon's -- whose long list of audio credits for video games includes the Unreal and Deus Ex series -- has put out a new album that brings together game audio (paying homage to the original Unreal soundtrack in spots) and '80s pop.

I've given Violet Electric a listen a couple times, and it's really great stuff! There's even a track that features Information Society's Kurt Larson on vocals, "Shrinking", with a hook that sticks in your head after a while.

Brandon says the CD is "intended to be a musical journey. Not something to just bob your head to or play in the background. A trip to a new world." You can stream the entire thing for free at Bandcamp, or buy Violet Electric in your format of choice for $12.
