Level 209: Ego Plum (The Cuphead Show)
Composer Ego Plum writes such fantastic music for The Cuphead Show (on Netflix).
The show itself is an absolute delight and it’s almost inexcusable if you don’t watch it (the episodes are brief enough that you could binge all 3 seasons in a day). And with comedic animation like this, the music is intertwined with the visuals that you really need to just watch it. It’s SO worth it.
That’s my endorsement. As for Ego’s music – he fumbled through the restrictions of the pandemic like any composer, finding musicians capable of recording themselves as far away as Greece. It sounds so good and the energy he still managed to capture is electric.
