Fire In The Northern Firs, an exuberant psych band from MPLS, needs your help to release a full length LP on luxurious colored vinyl.
Handmade Art! Fabulous Gifts! Endless Personal Satisfaction!
Hi, everyone! We are Fire In The Northern Firs, an exuberant psych/shoegaze band from MPLS, and we would love your help releasing our upcoming full length record. 2011 was an exciting year for us: we put out a handmade cassette EP, titled "Field Guide" and were voted one of First Avenue's Best New Bands Of 2011 - you may have seen us playing around Minneapolis, or heard us on 89.3 the Current or Radio K sometime in the last year. We hope for 2012 to be even more exciting, but we need to get our new debut full-length record out and into your ears in order to do so.
We've got a gaggle of thrilling new songs recorded but need some assistance to finish mixing, mastering, and pressing our new record onto sexy colored wax. A little love from you will get you a pre-order of the record + some other goodies. A slightly larger amount of love from you will get you some fun and unique rewards that we hope will knock your socks off. (right over here!) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
Like our previous release, we will be hand crafting the packaging for these records ourselves. And remember: you do not need a record player to enjoy these! Not only will they look sexy but they will all come with digital download cards. The final product will not be a cardboard sleeve with clip art of a business meeting on it, no sir! For the final product we shall fuse each of our respective craft-laden genomes into one super-being of gargantuan design power. "Maury" is on the box and the hot glue guns are set to "stun".
We've all been playing music our entire lives and this is what we live for but, as a DIY band, getting it recorded and out to you is costly. We want you to be a part of this! Your generosity would mean everything to us, since you all are the reason we are where we are and do what we do. Let's make it happen!
Much love from Adam, Carin, Shane, and Scott
