Ladytron Love

Audiosurf seems most perfectly suited for electronica.  I mean this is sci-fi stuff right? Flying a space ship on a course created by the music.  A steady beat makes for a simple track though.  More complex layered songs like those of the Chemical Brothers or Ladytron (featured below) make for a fascinating trip through rythm and space!  (and it can get pretty frantic too!)

Here’re vids of surfing a couple totally schweet trax off of Ladytron’s latest album Velocifero:

It’s hard as hell to explain Audiosurf to someone.  I mean, it’s easy to sell them on it, because if you just tell them the pieces they’ll expect awesome.  The game takes a song from your own music collection (mp3s on your hard drive) and forms a track out of it that you race a little space ship along and collect colored blocks.  Most folks will be on board with this simple description.

But nothing can can express the experience that goes beyond the simple facts.  There’s listening to your music, there’s watching your music, and then there’s RIDING your music.  It’s intense and passionate and a blast!

A simple demonstration is a poor substitute for the real thing, but here’s a taste.  What’s a more appropriate soundtrack to zipping along in your space ship than some old school Floyd?
