Ro-Bear - "Three Years"

Ro-Bear has been performing GameBoy music since 2008's Blip Festival, and his album "Three Years" offers some of his best work. This nine-track release includes a selection of songs written over the past three years, with a good amount of lively melodies and ideas. Ro-Bear keeps things interesting with several real highlights, such as the atmospheric intro to "The Discovery of Ice". The oddly-titled "Dank Taquitos", on the other hand, is full of happy melodies and a nice sense of progression. Overall, "Three Years" is a solid effort that's worth giving a spin.
