Humble Indie Bundle expands to pay-what-you-want music downloads.
The Humble Bundle is trying something different this time, now you can pay what you want for a collection of six albums, including OK Go, Jonathan Coulton, and They Might Be Giants.
The Humble Bundle's creators are expanding into a "new industry" with the new Humble Music Bundle.
This time, you can pay-what-you-want for a collection of six albumbs featuring music from beloved geeky groups including OK Go, They Might Be Giants, Jonathan Coulton and MC Frontalot.
So, it includes:There's a definite gaming vibe running through the six albums being offered here. Besides the Best of Valkyria Chronicles soundtrack, the selection contains Christopher Tin's Calling All Dawns (including the Grammy winning Civilization IV theme "Baba Yetu") and a greatest hits album from Jonathan Coulton (complete with a live version of his memorable, Portal-ending song "Still Alive"). The bundle also features nerdcore rapper (and frequent Penny Arcade Expo performer) MC Frontalot, a remix-filled album from power pop group OK Go (who helped launch the 3DS's downloadable video service last year) and geek-rock favorites They Might Be Giants (who… actually don't have much of a connection to gaming, it seems).
- Album Raises New and Troubling Questions
- Calling All Dawns
- Best of the Valkyria Chronicles
- Jonathan Coulton's Greatest Hit (Plus 13 Other Songs)
- Twelve Remixes of Four Songs (if you beat average)
You'll get the songs in both MP3 and lossless FLAC formats without DRM, and the bundle will be available for two weeks.
