Special thanks to Josie Brechner of @visagermusic who let us use their music for this episode of Sidenote.  It comes from their album 'Songs From An Unmade World 2' - the tracks are inspired by old-school adventure/RPG video game music and they mix classic chiptune sounds with more modern electronic elements.
