Guthrie, Jim: Sword & Sworcery LP
The soundtrack for Sword & Sworcery: The Ballad of the Space Babies is LEGENDARY, and that is thanks to the LEGEND himself, other-dimensional composer, Jim Guthrie. That’s actually an understatement, because fact is – this dreamy, ephemeral synth-rock journey of an album is responsible for inspiring an entire generation of videogame music. When Guthrie self-published the epic tunes from Sword & Sworcery on vinyl in 2011, the collection wasn’t complete. FINALLY – eight years later – this 2xLP “Super Deluxe Edition” presents, for the first time, the full soundtrack + an additional 40 minutes of bonus tracks and remixes + a mindblowing, glow-in-the-dark playset of a package. Made with moon magic and kissed with cosmic dust.
