November 7, Saguijo for J-hoon Balbuena's Noodles vinyl launch
Migi de Belen thinks himself a hero only in the Super Mario sense, sucked into the dank and winding pipework of his own nostalgia. Nights of Rizal is the low-res, pixelated soundtrack to Migi's endless 2d side-scrolling: where the princess is not a princess, but is a concept, and is always in another castle.
