Primal Collective is polytonal folk music that resonates with the primal spark in us all. Help release their 2 disk album!

EDIT #1: Hammer Smashed Sound gave our project a fantastic write up.  A HUGE thank you to them!
"I think once you hear this, you will have a strong desire to support this project. Improvisation often creates magic, and that is most certainly the case here."

Recorded in 2010 amidst the trees, Primal Collective is a group of musicians creating poly-tonal improvisation folk music with guitar, voice, trumpet, wooden flute, blowing horn, singing bowl, violin, maracas, drum, and found objects. 

The video above is a sampling of the first disk, North Woods Sessions.  To hear the rest of the album, visit our bandcamp at http://primalcollective.bandcamp.com or our facebook at www.facebook.com/PrimalCollective

Primal Collective was formed for Old Forgotten Lands' Primal album.  Only one track from the two recorded sessions made it onto Primal as the track "Lakewood."  The remaining tracks are going to be released in a limited run of 50 albums under the name Primal Collective.  The artwork itself consists of photographs of primal pots being fired with ash glaze.

We are not asking you to completely fund this project, but rather give us a boost towards putting out this primal music.

Where will the money go?

1. Artwork and packaging. This album consists of two disks, one for each of the Sessions.  The total production cost for 50 albums is about $300.  We're only asking for a little over half that.

2. A very small portion goes towards Kickstarter and the perks we are offering for pledging (like shipping costs). 

3. Any funds over $180 will be applied towards releasing more than 50 copies of the album.

How does Kickstarter work?

Kickstarter is a unique fundraising platform in that each project (like this one) has an "all-or-nothing" style: we either meet and exceed our $180 goal, or no money changes hands. You choose any donation amount, picking from the list to the right, which has cool rewards for you.

Could we do this without help? Probably, but the end result would be drab in comparison. We don't want that, and we bet you don't either.
