What we're doing
The Jupiter Deluxe has completed all the tracking for our full length LP and are nearing the finish line. This includes the critical post-production steps of mixing and mastering all the material. You can sample and comment upon some extremely great work-in-progress mixes above!
We will also be pressing vinyl records, some CDs and making the music available for purchase online. We have estimated this to cost us $2,000, and we are asking for your help in making it happen.
The tracks are currently being mixed at Hoboken Recorders, where we produced our EP four years ago. We decided to stick with what works. The single from that release, "Faceplant," has been played on FM and Internet radio and was recently featured on the season finale of NY INK during a pivotal three minute montage. The timing of this couldn't be better, as we hope new fans will seek out our music following the 7/21 airing.
What's our plan?
We are shooting to have this project ready to be pressed by September 15, 2011. That means all the mixing and mastering completed by the end of August. We will be using the funds we collect here to pay Hoboken Recorders and to order physical copies of the record.
How does this work?
The way Kickstarter works is simple. As a backer, you pledge a certain amount of money towards the project. If we don't reach our goal of $2,000 we won't get anything, so we need (and appreciate the heck out of) everyone's support! You can make these donations through Amazon.com. Your account won't be charged until the end of the campaign, or once we've reached our goal...whichever comes first!
