Humble Music Bundle: Pay what you want for six albums

The fine folks at Humble Bundle unveiled the first-ever Humble Music Bundle today, offering six albums from "the Internet's finest songsmiths."

The fine folks at Humble Bundle unveiled the first-ever Humble Music Bundle today, offering six albums from "the Internet's finest songsmiths."

The bundle includes Calling All Dawns, the classical crossover album from composer Christopher Tin that won two Grammy Awards in 2009; Favoritism from nerdcore hip-hop artist MC Frontalot; Best of the Valkyria Chronicles by noted JRPG composer Hitoshi Sakimoto; Jonathan Coulton's Greatest Hit, a 14-track compilation from the eponymous geek-oriented singer-songwriter; and Album Raises New and Troubling Questions, a rarities collection by They Might Be Giants.

Just like the Humble Indie Bundle, the Music Bundle lets you name your price for the DRM-free content on offer. If you pay more than the average — currently just under $8 — you also get OK Go's Twelve Remixes of Four Songs, a compilation featuring remixes of top tracks from the band's most recent studio album, Of the Blue Colour of the Sky. The bundle can be purchased on Windows, Mac, or Linux, although since the music comes in MP3 and FLAC files, it's compatible with any device that plays those formats.

As usual, you can distribute your contribution however you would like among the artists, the charities involved (Child's Play and the Electronic Frontier Foundation), and the Humble Bundle organization. As always, the promotion only lasts for two weeks, although we're wondering if — like the Indie Bundles — the Music Bundle will soon add more albums to its package. Either way, it's a good deal for a good cause.
