Zachary Ross I was introduced to Archie Pelago when someone recommended the game Off Peak to me. I remember feeling like I was in a particularly vivid and unsettling dream with amazing music as I played through it. A while later I discovered that the sound track was available to buy and I jumped on it. After listening through the songs on their own I can say with even more certainty that Off Peak is one of the most impressive albums I've heard all year. It's bizarre and wonderful all at once. Bravo. Favorite track: Frogphone.

Stillhead Utterly mesmerised by these guys. This album should be purchased on the first chord from Frogphone alone. Favorite track: Frogphone.

Niccolo Brown The potential for self-indulgence when combining live jazz instrumentation and studio electronics is alarmingly high but worry not; Archie Pelago's subtle chicanery means they coalesce into a luscious whole on "Off-Peak". Captivating to a fault, I'm guessing the video game it soundtracks is a seriously surreal affair. Favorite track: Mortified by Faith.

eva henderson Just wow. Some of the most enjoyable and innovative music I've listened to has been video game soundtrack music. Off-Peak is no exception. This is album is chock full of seriously amazing, genre-bending, and jazz-infused experimental music. Well worth the buy. Favorite track: Fick Yer Mini.

about

Archie Pelago releases a long-form soundtrack album to accompany the game Off-Peak. Created by Archie Pelago cellist Cosmo D, Off-Peak the game can be played at cosmoddd.itch.io/off-peak.

About Off-Peak (the game):

"Wonderfully odd." - Rock Paper Shotgun

"Play it now... the soundtrack is really, really striking." - Boing Boing

"Where Coltrane and Rinse Dream collide... whether or not this is a videogame, a music video or a mood board is a question with no incorrect answer." - Kill Screen

You're stranded at a cathedral-like train station in the near future, searching for a ticket out of town. Explore the secret passageways, interact with strangers, dig for records, and get hypnotized by the soundtrack – a new batch of never-before-heard Archie Pelago tunes.

In Off-Peak, players will uncover a world where the fate of it's musicians and artists is unclear, yet their tools of the trade are highly prized. Meanwhile, the station itself provides all the comforts a commuter could ask for: great food, the best beer, entertaining board games, relaxing gardens. But *who* is really benefiting here? It is entirely up to the player to what degree they want to engage in and interpret Off-Peak's stories, characters and themes.

About the album:

The music that accompanies Off-Peak has been stewing in a variety of forms for a few years. With Off-Peak the game, it's given a particular context and function, soundtracking the player's journey through an original world. The games' themes and messages interweave with the music.

As a standalone soundtrack album, however, the tracks unfurl at their own pace and in their own space, delving into the abstract emotional and sonic landscapes Archie is known for, deeper than ever before. The band brings its full instrumental arsenal to the table, alongside powerful vocals courtesy of Novelty Daughter, Gabe Garzon-Montano and others.

The spirit of openness that has been in the band's DNA from the beginning is represented in full-force on the Off-Peak OST.
