Could Not Be Worse This is music for walking into the depths of the woods and forgetting about the world beyond the trees.

Joyful, mysterious, and wistful, these tracks are a perfect soundtrack for a magical adventure. Other suitable times to play this album include: when you need background music for your D&D session; while you're staring out the window on a foggy day; during a lengthy study/work session and need focus music. Favorite track: And We Got Older.

Sudaksis Like many others, this album was my first exposure to Jim's music. After listening to it over months and never getting tired, I eventually came across his other works and found a gold mine of songs that often didn't even feel like music but rather like distilled experiences and moods in an audio format. Jim is the only artist I've ever felt this way about and it was thanks to this album that so many others and I discovered all of his (and friends') music. <3 Favorite track: The Prettiest Weed.

about

Jim Guthrie's Sword & Sworcery LP: The Ballad of the Space Babies

Some of the songs on this record directly inspired the creation of the collaborative art+music+video game project known as Superbrothers : Sword & Sworcery EP, " a brave experiment in I/O cinema with an archetypical video game aesthetic" available for Apple's touchtronic machinery on the iTunes App Store. Other songs, like The Ballad of the Space Babies were created specifically for S:S&S EP. For more information about the project you might want to stop by swordandsworcery.com
