Sword & Sworcery LP goes old school

Sword & Sworcery LP: The Ballad of the Space Babies is the soundtrack to the critically acclaimed Sword & Sworcery EP. The album's been available to download from composer Jim Guthrie's Bandcamp page for quite some time now for. If you want to kick it old school, there's a $30 vinyl edition available for sale that comes with a digital download as well as an original art print (pictured right) by Pendleton Ward, the creator of Adventure Time. This batch is limited to 1,000 copies and started shipping earlier this month. But lots of things come in vinyl nowadays. After all, it's retro chic. But there was also something I wasn't expecting.

Now available is a limited 400-copy cassette release for $12. Now that's retro! How often do you see a new album released on cassette tape? Answer: barely ever. The copy also includes the extended 27 track digital version as well as a download code with an additional six track EP and a couple of S&S stickers. I snatched one up right away. You should too, because $12 is a steal for only 400 in existence. Plus, you can blow your friends' minds.
