The Sensible EP Preview

For your listening pleasure today, I've procured a little taster of our Sensible EP. Slip on your favourite audiophile headphones, relax into a boxy leather armchair and switch on your HDTVs 'fish tank' function as you sample the original studio recordings of 'Goalscoringsuperstarhero', 'War (Never Been So Much Fun)' and 'Narcissus'.

The Sensible EP comprises a heavyweight vinyl signed by Jon Hare and accompanying not-very-heavy-at-all digital downloads. I'm hoping to twist Jon's arm and add more tracks to the EP so I'll keep you all posted with how I get on.

      Hi Paul. I'm so sorry that we can't offer you a compromise on the EP, I really wish I could drop that extra tier into the offering but we only have a license for the product shown. With future music products we'll certainly look to negotiate download-only options.

      I'd also love a slightly cheaper digital download only version of the tracks without the vinyl. $180 is out of my budget. :(

      Though in some ways I understand the need to keep the EP exclusive.

      Hi Iain and ZikZak. We have licensed the music from Sensible Soundware purely for our very special EP tier. While I'm keen to pack that EP full of as many Sensible tracks as we can we are duty-bound to offer it physically (with accompanying download) and for the price shown. I can assure you though it will be a beautiful item, and that we won't repress it beyond this initial run.

      A perk betwen 38$ and 50$ with FLACs would be a great idea.

      Would you consider another funding tier to add digital downloads of Sensible songs to the package? I loved these tracks but can't afford $180 for the Vinyl EP Edition sadly.
