About this project

I'm Judith (The Sneaky Mister) and love vinyl. The concept for PRETTY is an 11-track LP and digital release, consisting mostly of songs from the Song of the Day series which ran from May of '09 until now (with breaks for larger projects) on my blog, TheSneakyMister.

Right now I'm learning fascinating things about how vinyl records are made, leaning towards Aardvark Mastering and Archer Pressing, and looking at recording studios in Brooklyn and Boston. I'm also recording a demo of all eleven songs, with the general arrangements of the final product, but for the next couple of weeks until that's finished you're welcome to listen to and download the sketchy Song of the Day versions here (not the final order):

Friend :: Stupid :: Plain :: Gone :: Thing ::
Box :: Fan :: Worried :: Try :: Rule :: Dog

The funds raised on Kickstarter will go towards: 2 days in a recording studio, record mastering, plating and pressing, and a second digital master for the downloadable version. Downloads will be made available on Bandcamp.

Since I'm an artist and this album is part of a larger painting/drawing/performance/printmaking/photography series all about worrying about things, the heavier rewards mostly involve original art.
