for the longest time i've been sustaining my musical dreams on the see-saw of my frugality. with the encouragement of sean and andrew, as well as the quiet song of my own heart growing tired of cutting corners, i, along with those other two rascals have decided to spend some money and produce an album that sounds as nice as it does in our heads.
on february 4-6, rtt will be entering tiny telephone studio to track a new collection of songs that we've been playing for a long time (and some that are still very ripe and agile.) we'll be recording, mixing and mastering all analog, just like our friends Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, Nick Drake etc... we're going into the time machine of music recordings to make an album that sounds as classic as the albums we love and draw inspiration from.
i've never asked anybody for this kind of money before, but, i've also never felt so confident in a batch of songs and the band that i'm playing with. these tracks deserve to sound good for all you lovely people that have the handsome souls to oblige our dreams and let our music paint the landscape of your mind from time to time.
these last couple of months we've been making remarks about doing some recording, which has resulted in the "Broken Part" EP which will be available soon, and will be released to everyone who pledges for this campaign. it's essentially a collection of old/new songs that didn't quite fit the vibe of our new album.
if you choose to make a donation, you'll be swept into the whirlwind of the recording process. there will be pictures, videos, song clips, and sean running in a hamster wheel among tons of other exclusives that will be for your eyes and ears only. this is like entering a slumber party with me, and we're having dark chat for hours and hours about what rests inside of my rib-cage.
we spent every penny we had from shows and performing on the street getting these days booked at tiny. this kickstarter is to help us replenish those funds and be able to be back at $0 or possibly go beyond $0 to start working towards the costs of mastering and duplication. this batch of songs will be done properly, and as soon as we have a finished product you guys will be the first to get a glimpse at what we've done. any contribution you can make towards our goal is greatly appreciated.
