Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, the iPad point and click sensation, wouldn’t be the success it is without the haunting, hypnotic score of Jim Gunthrie, now available as Jim Gunthrie’s Sword & Sworcery LP: The Ballad of the Space Babies. This means I can enjoy the Toronto-based artist’s sonorous stylings without exposing myself to the temptation of tweeting every line of dialogue. Apologies to my Twitter followers.
You can grab a digital copy of the 27-track album at iTunes (currently Canada only) for $8.99 or at Jim Guthrie’s Bandcamp for $7.99. In addition to being a buck cheaper, buying straight from the artist allows you to choose “about any [music] format you could possibly desire.” For $30, you could be the proud owner of a 12″ vinyl copy, which features an embossed jacket by Craig “Superbrothers” Adams, a limited edition art print by Cory Schmitz, and the digital copy.
Meanwhile, the iPhone version of Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is still on track for release sometime in late April.
