Hey, thanks for the crazy quick funding! We're still sending out download codes to new supporters and will continue to do so until the end of this project (March 19th). Thanks. --Sam and Robert
We're I Come to Shanghai, two guys (Sam Frigard and Robert Ashley) who have been making music together for nearly a decade, starting in Oakland, California and recently relocating to Athens, Georgia. In July of last year, we released the first episode in our Eternal Life series. You can hear it here: www.icometoshanghai.com
Eternal Life Volume 2 is completed and ready to release. You can hear an excerpt from it in the video above. What we'd like from you is the means to put BOTH recordings on a single vinyl LP. Specifically, we're looking to pay for the mastering, pressing, and shipping costs of making 1,000 LPs.
The finished product will have a double front cover (Volume 1 on one side and Volume 2 on the other), and we should be able to ship them out in May.
Get Eternal Life Vol. 2 Early
Everyone who pledges at the $15 level or more will receive a download code for Eternal Life Vol. 2 THE DAY THIS PROJECT REACHES ITS FUNDING GOAL*. You could hear this thing tomorrow if we get it done quickly.
*Within 24 hours of funding. It will take some work on our end.
Details on the Limited Edition Cassette
In 2009 Sam gave Robert a CD-R of 11 new songs demoed for possible use on future I Come to Shanghai records. The songs were filed away and forgotten. Hearing it years later, it works as an album on its own, if rough around the edges. For the pleasure of those willing to help make this Kickstarter project happen, we will professionally manufacture a run of 100 cassettes of this music (VISIBLE COW SKETCHES). It will be THE ONLY WAY this recording will ever be released. You can hear one song from the tape here: http://youtu.be/Z6-4phlbJQ0
Note on International Shipping
A large percentage of our usual supporters live in the UK, Scandinavia, Europe, and other places far from Athens, Georgia. We love you guys. Please make sure you add the requested amount listed under each option to cover shipping costs.
THANK YOU --Sam and Robert
