To me, a vinyl record is a piece of history, it has a life and character of its own. It's more than music, it's a full experience.
At the top of the rust belt, where there is no longer factory smoke, the bustling traffic of industry, or prosperity, there is an emerging culture of artists and musicians who survived the fall of an empire and learned how to endure in an economic fallout zone for most of their lives. They live in a place where the simplest pleasures have become extravagant luxuries.
The Tosspints have earned a spot in Saginaw’s history by performing songs about what it's like to live and die in a town that has been nearly lost and forgotten. With their newest release, they want to make something with as much warmth and life as the town they love and still believe in: they want to release a vinyl record.
Unlike past digital releases, this vinyl record would recreate the band’s physical presence---an experience unattainable through CDs and downloads. This expensive endeavor is out of the reach of three working class men from Saginaw. It would be unattainable without your help.
UPDATE: Thanks to their Kickstarter supporting programs and excellent service, we are planning on pressing the album with Furnace MFG!
