Cuphead - iam8bit soundtrack

iam8bit is releasing a double vinyl album featuring highlights from Kristofer Maddigan’s score for Cuphead.

StudioMDHR’s Cuphead is rightly recognised for its eye-popping visuals and ‘rubber hose’ style animation. However, it’s arguable that Kristofer Maddigan’s super-cool jazz soundtrack is just as important to the game’s sublime evocation of 1930s-era cartoons.

iam8bit has announced a new Cuphead 2xLP Vinyl Soundtrack album that features some of the game’s best tracks, and also includes some previously unreleased solos. The new release follows a four-record collection that sold out in the US, although you can still pick it up from iam8bit’s Asia store.

The new album is packaged in a retro-style sleeve and priced at $30. Pre-orders are open until May 1, with the album due to ship in autumn. Head over to the iam8bit store for more details.

Now, dear reader, pull up a stool and listen to one of our favourite Cuphead tracks, the musical masterpiece that is Botanic Panic.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
