Adam Taylor is recording an album chock-full of virus-like melodies, witty wordplay, and other folky nonsense; Help release it!
HOLY CRAP. This record starts with a PUNCH...literally.
The first day of pre-production, our producer (oh, who happens to also be my brother), and I had a fist fight...over a BRIDGE. Yeah, we're THAT dedicated to our art. So dedicated in fact, we've crafted the record's sound with so much diligence...we've gone broke in the process. This is where you come in.
We can have this music mixed, mastered, manufactured, and mailed to you in a matter of months (like the alliteration?) But ONLY if we reach our $6,000 goal If not, I'm going to have to apply for welfare, sell drugs, and probably DIE putting this record out. YEAH, I might DIE.
But in all seriousness, I've put plenty of blood, sweat, and tears into this thing, and I need your help to see it through. This is what you'll be helping us do:
1.) MIX. You want more cowbell? It costs a pretty penny to have a professional turn 'dem knobs. 2.) MASTER. What's mastering? Making sure the record is consistent in compression and EQ 3.) MANUFACTURE. Hey, if you're gonna pay for it, it best look like a REAL product, right? 4.) PROMOTE. We're taking this record to radio baby! Move over GaGa. 5.) TOUR. Listen, I want to come to Austin, TX and Atlanta, GA too but gas is PRICEY.
