You, Me & Gravity: The Music of Planet Coaster by Jim Guthrie & JJ Ipsen

Grab your tickets and meet me at the turnstiles! This week we are taking a looking at the ever whimsical soundtrack to Planet Coaster, written and composed by the marvelous Jim Guthrie & JJ Ipsen. Planet Coaster is a melancholy journey that whisks you away with a peaceful log flume, and then drops you into physics defying loops all in the time it takes you to say “funnel cake.” Whether you are a daredevil or not, this album has all the trappings of an amusement park packed into two wax circles that will leave you with a smile from ear to ear. Take a tumble in the bumper cars as you partake in this eclectically folk journey that’s relishes in meandering you to every peaceful nook and cranny of this lively park of dreams. Pressed on “Day Turns to Night” vinyl by iam8bit, Planet Coaster is truly a delight to your soul and not something to be missed.

The Light In Us All

Jim Guthrie has long been one of my favorite artists of all time, and his recent collaborations with the extremely talented JJ Ipsen have been a wonderful treat for us all. These two masters of their craft work flawlessly together to create a dynamic and moody album that hits every mark, rivaling the greats of the theme park sim genre. With everything from Jim’s lo-fi folky roots on full display here, it’s no surprise that Planet Coaster has become a classic before it even stops spinning.

Pride of Pimilico

iam8bit is one of the most synonymous labels in the video game vinyl scene. Their attention to detail and highly artistic approach to their releases is one of the things that makes them stand out as a label. The matte finish on this release contrasted with the high gloss finish of the Ferris wheel creates a subtle yet gorgeous embossing that is pleasing to the eye. The artwork done by Syd Weiler here is presented beautifully when the gatefold is opened fully. Both the inner and outer parts of the sleeve create a peaceful landscape, allowing one to lose themselves amongst the clouds.
