Get Cursive's New Album on the Cheap!

Anybody who has been a longtime reader of Audio Overflow knows two things about me:

  1. I'm a big fan of the band Cursive.
  2. I'm not a big fan of digital media.
Saddle Creek is quickly changing my mind, however, as they're currently offering up Cursive's new album, Mama, I'm Swollen, for the ludicrous price of $1. As always, there's a catch. Here's what the company has to say:
As of today, March 1st, Mama, I'm Swollen in MP3 format is available for $1
exclusively in the Saddle Creek Online Store.
On March 2nd, it will be $2
March 3rd, $3
March 4th, $4
etc, etc
until March 10th when the record hits the shelves, at which point the MP3
files will remain at their regular price of $9.

This promotion only applies to the digital MP3 version of Mama, I'm
Swollen. CD and Deluxe LP physical editions are also available, and include
an instant MP3 download of the record, deluxe art and a download card for
additional bonus music and videos.
Obviously, this isn't the best deal in the world (hey, Radiohead and Trent did just give away their shit), but it's good to see labels getting in on the action. My copy is currently being downloaded, and I can't wait to hear the end result.

What about you? You hopping on board this one?

two bucks sounds like a pretty good deal.

assuming you've already listened through it, how did you feel about it?
