Earlier this month, we already shared the announcement of the upcoming soundtrack to Capybara Games‘ Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP. As promised, today is the day you can get your very own copy of Sword & Sworcery LP – The Ballad of the Space Babies in either a digital or limited edition vinyl.
The album’s 27 tracks are all written, recorded and mixed by Jim Guthrie. Sword & Sworcery LP – The Ballad of the Space Babies contains both music from and inspired the creation of the game.
Some of the songs on this record directly inspired the creation of the collaborative art+music+video game project known as Superbrothers : Sword & Sworcery EP, ” a brave experiment in I/O cinema with an archetypical video game aesthetic” available for Apple’s touchtronic machinery on the iTunes App Store. Other songs, like The Ballad of the Space Babies were created specifically for S:S&S EP.
As would seem logical, Sword & Sworcery LP – The Ballad of the Space Babies is available through iTunes for $8.99 USD / $8.99 CAD / $16.99 AUD / £6.99, but can also be purchased at Bandcamp in both a digital form and 180g 12″ Vinyl + Limited Edition Print package.
Artwork by the one and only Craig D. Adams (aka Superbrothers). Embossed jacket printed in full colour on reverse board. Also included – a limited edition 11 x 11, 2 colour print on 80lbs paper by Cory Schmitz printed by Standard Form Printing & Publishing in Toronto, ON
The vinyl package sells for $31.14 USD / $30 CAD / $29.95 AUD / ₤19.31 and includes a free download of the digital version of the album from Bandcamp. The Bandcamp offering of Sword & Sworcery LP – The Ballad of the Space Babies costs $8.29 USD / $7.99 CAD / $7.98 AUD / ₤5.14 and is available in 320Kbps MP3, MP3 VBR, FLAC, ALAC, AAC, and Ogg Vorbis formats.
Speaking of releases, the Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP site makes a tiny mention that the iPhone and iPod touch version of the game is planned for this month.
In the same dramatic audiovisual approach that brings unique life to Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, Superbrothers has posted a somewhat hypnotizing promotional video for the release.
