 Our beach house recording experience was amazing.  The more we get excited about the release the more we want to do.  We have designs on a 7", an Lp, a video and a west coast tour.  All that said, we still can use your help.  We humbly ask for your support.  Oh, yeah, and we just added new rewards including a "Seaside Recordings" T-shirt that is exclusive to this campaign. 

   We have many other rewards to offer for your generosity.  At the most basic level, we are asking you to buy an advanced copy of the recordings. In addition to the recording, we have other Holopaw loot and some of limited edition items.  Have you been wanting a dagger and a download or quality time with a member of Holopaw?  We can help. Images of most rewards can be found here

   We have ten new songs with the working titles: "Academy (Intro), "He Don't", "Golden Sparklers", "Disco Intro", "Discotheque", "Virgin Snow", "Diamonds", "Golden Years", "Slippery Boys", and "Hotel".  We have 7 days in June to record them.  We believe in this new material and believe this communal, seaside recording process will set the tone for our finest record to date. Please help these songs find their way into the world. We will work hard to make you proud that you did.

Thank you for your support.
