Cuphead's tunes become the first video game soundtrack to top Billboard's jazz charts.
There's nothing quite like Cuphead. With hand-drawn animations straight out of a golden age cartoon, it's probably the most visually-striking indie on the market. But it'd lose a lot of magic without its soundtrack, and apparently jazz fans agree: The game's soundtrack is #1 on Billboard's jazz music charts for the week of September 14.
Cuphead is like time-travelling to the 1930s, when fast-tempo jazz and old-time piano notes invigorated smoke-hazy clubs. It's a unique and spellbinding journey, and the soundtrack really captures the authentic vibes of the period. Whether it's a slow meandering melody as you roam across the world map, or a pulse-racing xylophone beat punctuated by bombastic trumpets, the soundtrack is absolutely excellent and worth your time (and money).
