Nobuo Uematsu's new band "Earthbound Papas" is set to release its debut album "Octave Theory" next month. You can see the track list and hear some samples at the official site. Earthbound Papas are former Black Mages' members Nobuo Uematsu, Michio Okamiya and Arata Hanyuda + Yoshitaka Hirota of Shdadow Hearts fame and Tsutomu Narita who as of late seems to be Uematsu's arranger of choice (Guin Saga, Final Fantasy XIV, etc.).
With the arrangements covering sources beyond Final Fantasy + 4 original tracks the track list looks promising. The samples didn't leave a lasting impression on me, though. Thoughts?
