Well, here's a novel way to upsell. Alessandro Cortini, keyboardist for Nine Inch Nails during the With Teeth and Year Zero eras, is offering custom-built synthesizers as part of an optional bundle package that comes with his new eponymous LP SONOIO ("It's me" in Italian).
For $160, fans will receive the digital download, CD, assorted extras and a portable synth called SuONOIO with which you can tweak the sounds from SONOIO. Of course, this is just one package as Cortini, who's also the frontman for L.A.-based electronic act Modwheelmood, is offering more affordable options that come with signed prints and other items. For you cheap bastards out there, you can download/stream the first four songs from the album for free here. [via Consequence of Sound]
