This Tuesday: Jim Guthrie! Jim Guthrie! Jim Guthrie!

My personal take
With Humble leaving the throne vacant this Tuesday, my pick of the day goes to what’s shaping up like possibly the greatest music bundle in quite some time.
Indeed, I spoiled the surprise already, it’s all about Jim Guthrie!
Of course, the man’s well known to gamers for having worked on Valve’s Portal games, as well as scoring one of my personal favorites, 2012’s Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery, whose OST is nothing short of enchanting, aaand! will be included in this bundle in both guises, The Ballad of the Space Babies and The Scythian Steppes. He also contributed pieces to a number of other indie games, and authored in full the soundtrack to Capy’s latest game, Below.
In fact, the reward for the two top contributors will be Below Volume 1’s Vinyl.
Jim’s Bandcamp lists 26 releases (although the descriptions mention 29), and this bundle will contain 18 of them, with one being, however, Royal City’s 2001 LP Alone at the Microphone.
For that reason, though, most of the bundle will NOT be game music, and seeing how Guthrie has used differing styles during its career, one might want to sample the albums.
Which will be easy, since I put together a list with the 9 albums shown in the background picture, just scroll down!, each one coming with its individual Bandcamp link.
At $3, during the pre-sale window, about 24 hours long, I don’t need to say the value is literally through the roof.
Do you miss Humble Mobile Bundles, too?
Bring’em back, bring’em back…
