The Humble Bundle is back, faster than ever, but unlike anything the pay-what you want project has done before. Introducing the Humble Music Bundle, a package of 6 albums from 6 artists all significant in nerd and video game culture. From the Valkyria Chronicles soundtrack to They Might Be Giants, the Humble Music Bundle has something for every proper nerd. As Christopher Tin explains, there're no Steam keys... since it's, uh, music, but everything is fully Linux compatible.
Here's are the 6 albums that are available in this first Humble Music Bundle:
- Jonathan Coulton's Greatest Hits (Plus 13 Other Songs) - Jonathan Coulton
- Best of Valkyria Chronicles - Hitoshi Sakimoto
- Calling All Dawns - Christopher Tin
- Album Raises New and Troubling Questions - They Might Be Giants
- Favoritism - MC Frontalot
- Twelve Remixes of Four Songs - OK Go (Bonus album for meeting the bundle's average price)
If you're unfamiliar with some of the names, Jonathan Coulton is known for writing the Portal and Portal 2 songs that are oh so popular, Christopher Tin wrote the award winning theme song for Civilization V, MC Frontalot is a "nerdcore hip-hop" rapper often showcased at the Penny Arcade Expo, and both OK Go and They Might Be Giants are just awesome bands that fit well in nerd culture.
The average price for the Humble Music Bundle is currently sitting above $8, remarkably high for a Humble Bundle, though you can head over to the site right now and pay what you want (though you'll miss out on the OK Go album if you drop below the average). Another great bundle from the Humble folk, and a fun idea too. More music for everyone!
