Hello

The name of our group is Bellflur and we have started a kickstarter fund to help us afford the final production and fabrication costs of both the vinyl and the Box Set we are making to house the vinyl.

We have never released a vinyl album before and we are getting carried away with ideas for making the Box something worth the time and effort we put into making each one and worth the money we are charging for one.  The drawback is that we have very limited funds of our own so we are hoping that our friends and people who like our music can help us afford to not cut too many corners and make this project come to fruition.  With that being said, I do believe that we are offering some nice rewards in exchange for the kindness of helping out a group of musicians in need.

The album is called Old Sun New Songs/Twelve Vagrant Monologues From the Last Living Star.

The album consists of 5 songs on 2 sides.

Side One (4 songs)

  • Country
  • Atoms
  • Report
  • Old Sun New Songs

Side Two

  • Twelve Vagrant Monologues From the Last Living Star

This song takes up the entire second side of the vinyl and is a collaborative effort with author Pablo D'Stair and consists of experimental sections of music written to back a written series of prose. 

The Box Set will include pieces of artwork:

  • 1 piece for each of the songs on Side One
  • 1 piece for each of the chapters of Side Two (12 pieces total)
  • 1 original piece of artwork on the tray underneath the vinyl(unique for each box set)

One of the things we set out to do with this album was to release something with large prints for the artwork so that one could take their time flipping through the book while listening to the album and just relax.  CD artwork is so small that is more painful than enjoyable to browse.  Feeling inspired by the Taschen series of books we amped up our production.  Each of the prints is 12" by 12" and should be easy for anyone's eyes to peruse.

We are looking to release the album in April of 2012 and will shoot to have a release show around the same time.

More details will following in the next few weeks.
