BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 28

After a brief escape and last minute trip to the European Union, we are back in full swing. This time around we have highlighted the new Justice track as well as other solid tracks. Another one within this playlist that is worth mentioning is an artist that goes be the name of Nick Murphy. This artist, formally known as Chet Faker, is looking to develop his sound in a new direction. If this track is any indication of what is to come, then consider us very excited. If you take anything away from the playlist this time, is that it should be a solid one to study or do intensive...


BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 27

Hello again everyone! It’s that time again. Sunday Sounds volume 27 is an older playlist we made a while ago with a bunch of really solid laid back tracks that will be sure to have enough energy to get you through the day. But hopefully not enough energy to ruin your groove. A few favorite tracks on this playlist include, “With You” by Illenium, “Walk with Me -Skyler Spence Remix” by Cosmo’s Midnight, and “Used” by Strangers You Know. We are always looking for new tunes to share with everyone. If you have one that you think is solid and we might like, send us a message over at info@bentobyte.co.

BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 25

This week on Sunday Sounds we have some fresh new tracks headed your way! After the last volume’s more dynamic pace, we decided to take more of a chill approach this time around. With a blend of synth pop and more indie hits like Beck and the Kills. Check it out below and let us know what you think. Sunday Sounds is part of a music series that we do here at BentoByte in order to give you something to get you through the week. And, if possible, help you discover a new track or two along the way. Want to suggest a track or let us know how we...


Sunday Sounds Volume 24

So it has been almost a year since the last time we did a Sunday Sounds segment here at BentoByte. So to restart this trend again, we are going to start by posted spotify playlists of tracks that we think you should check out. This week, we have a playlist with a mix of house tracks. They span from dance tracks that are at the top of the pop charts all the way to deep house and drum and bass. And since we have been obsessed with it, we think you should be too! Want to be a part of the Sunday Sounds curation or help create your own playlist...


BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 23

BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 23 comes at you with three songs, one of which is a monster hit from the great TeddyLoid. Let’s give them a listen! What I Want (You) To Hear Nekobolo I actually found this song by accident but I’m happy I did. It’s a very relaxing song and Nekobolo’s production on this song is top-notch. After having heard this song, I’m going to have to do a little bit more digging in order to find more of their stuff; the pacing of the song is consistent as is the overall tone of the song. If you didn’t know any better, you’d think that there was someone...


BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 22

BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 22 is here with a few songs for you guys to listen to. It’s been a long week, so let’s at least start this one off nice. Let’s get this show on the road! disillusion LiSA This song is actually a cover of the original version that served as the opening song for the visual novel for Fate/stay night. LiSA’s version was seen at the end of episode 12 for Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works and if I may say so, I think that this version is far superior. Regardless of which version you listen to, both definitely give off the overall mystical, yet haunting, feeling of the series...


BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 21

BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 21 is here with a slightly altered theme this week. Instead of my own music, I’ve gone ahead and asked some of the staff here at BentoByte to give me a few of their favorite pieces of music. I’ve looked at them all and listened to them, so here are a few that stand out. START:DASH!! μ’s μ’s makes a return in Sunday Sounds with “START:DASH!!”. This song is one of the first songs performed by μ’s, having been performed by its initial members Umi, Honoka, and Kotori. The song was then performed again with all nine members later on in the series. The song starts off...


BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 20

BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 20 is here, folks. First and foremost, I want to thank each and every single one of you for sticking with this music series for as long as you have. It’s people like you that give me the drive to do what I like. Now, I’ve got five songs here that I’ve had on repeat the past week, so let’s get going with those, shall we? Colony BUMP OF CHICKEN If you’ve been keeping up with our coverage of Blood Blockade Battlefront, then you’d know this band. They perform the show’s opening song “Hello, world!” which, in itself, is a very entertaining song. However, “Colony” brings down...


BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 19

BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 19 is here and around the world people are celebrating Mother’s Day. Well, here at BentoByte, we’re doing the same thing, just in our own way. Let’s get going with it! Blumenkranz Hiroyuki Sawano feat. Cyua If you’ve seen Kill la Kill, then you know exactly how wonderful parenthood is in that show. “Blumenkranz” is the theme song of Ragyo Kiryuin, the mother to both Ryuko Matoi and Satsuki Kiryuin as well as the main antagonist of the show. To be very blunt, she was a horrible mother and is often included in the trio of horrible parents (which include Shou Tucker from Fullmetal Alchemist and Gendo Ikari from Neon...


BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 18

The eighteenth volume of BentoByte’s hit series Sunday Sounds is here for your viewing pleasure. Five songs are lined up for you so let’s get this show on the road, folks! No title GigaP feat. Reol Along with “ME!ME!ME! CHRONIC”, this is one song that I’ve had on repeat for the past few days. I usually skipped it whenever my music was playing but, one day, I decided to give it a shot; I’m glad that I did. This song comes from GigaP’s dual album No title, which has two versions. No title+ has songs performed by none other than Hatsune Miku; however, the alternate version of the album is No title- which...


BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 17

The seventeenth volume of BentoByte’s hit music series Sunday Sounds is here. This week, I’ve got some music lined up for you, so let’s get this ball rolling. Dance Dance Dance Miu Sakamoto Miu Sakamoto isn’t super well-known in anime-centric circles, but for those of you that are into Vocaloid might recognize her voice: she provides the voice for the Vocaloid Mew. When I first found out her music, I initially listened to “Phantom Girl’s First Love” which is also a really good song. However, after admittedly not much digging, I stumbled upon this song. It’s pretty calm for a dance song. As I listened to it, I would imagine...


BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 16

BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 16 is here for your enjoyment. Starting with this volume, I’ll be slowly expanding the variety of music that will be included in the volumes. This series’ primary focus is on anime music and that will never change, but let’s throw some more in the mix. Anyway, let’s get on with the show! Octopus Daughter Serani Poji I was first introduced to the Shibuya-kei genre on accident. I was searching for music from the Persona 3 soundtrack, but I couldn’t find it. One thing led to another and I eventually stumbled upon this song. Now, according to what I’ve read, this song is considered a classic in the genre...


BentoByte Sunday Sounds Volume 15

And we’re back, folks. The fifteenth volume of BentoByte Sunday Sounds is here for you all. In order to ease us back into the swing of things, let’s go in slowly and look at some alternate versions of songs we already know. Check them out! Oath Sign (Acoustic Version) LiSA As opposed to the standard version of this song, the acoustic version will naturally feel more down tempo. However, with this brings an entirely new definition to the song, as LiSA’s vocals are far more punctuated in order to keep with the slower pace of the song. It feels more solemn, more personal, yet at the same time a bit distant,...


BentoByte Sunday Sounds: Volume 14

BentoByte is here for the fourteenth volume of Sunday Sounds. With the winter anime season coming to a close, I want to take a moment to point out some fantastic openings and endings from anime shown during the season. Take a look! Flyers BRADIO If you’ve been keeping up with the site, you’d know that we covered Death Parade, an anime produced by Madhouse. It was an interesting show and definitely one that kept us on our toes. However, without a doubt, the best part of the entire series was the opening song that gave absolutely no hint about the context of the show. Mind you, this is a good thing:...
