Lagrange Point score transported onto vinyl record release

Brooklyn-based publisher Ship to Shore has pressed the Lagrange Point soundtrack to vinyl. Composed by the Konami Kukeiha Club, the analog record ships through distributors Mondo, The Yetee, and disk union in Japan.

A collector's item for Famicom audiophiles, the Japan-exclusive role-playing game launched in 1991 with a "special memory mapper chip (the VRC7) that enabled the cartridge to produce FM synthesis," giving it a unique and memorable sound quality.

A JRPG sporting detailed sprite art and narrative-heavy science fiction plot, the often overlooked 8-bit epic found a new audience overseas with the release of an English translation in 2014 by hobbyists at Aeon Genesis. The digital soundtrack is streaming on Apple Music and Amazon Music Unlimited.
