Hello, we are Mr. and Mrs. Muffins, a husband and wife duo currently residing in Seattle, WA. We write quirky stories with imaginative illustrations and whimsical soundtracks. The result is a project that appeals to both children and adults. (Imagine if Antoine de Saint-Exupéry teamed up with Nilsson and they recorded an audiobook that was scored by Yann Tiersen).
No, seriously, imagine that for just a moment... That would be ridiculously good.
If you aren't feeling imaginative at this moment in time, you can visit http://www.mrandmrsmuffins.bandcamp.com to take a listen for yourself.
Anyway, our goal, and the reason why we started this kickstarter page, is to release our first all-music album, The Raindrop Dance and Other Songs About Love, on vinyl. No, you didn't just time-warp to the '70s. And yes, we said VINYL!
We have chosen to jump on the vinyl bandwagon for the following reasons:
1. The sound is clear and natural.
2. The artwork is large and colorful.
3. Steely Dan's "Aja" was originally released on vinyl, not CD or mp3 download.
All of the music for our recording is already mastered. All we have to do now is get it pressed to vinyl. After literally months of searching, we have found a company that will make 250 copies of our album for $1,450 plus shipping and $100 for a test pressing.
By meeting our goal of $1,400, you will be assisting in the creation of the following things:
-- Vinyl duplication (250 pieces)
-- Full-color vinyl jackets on 16pt stock w/3mm spine
-- Full-color labels
-- Our happiness :)
If our goal isn't met, our project won't be funded and you won't be charged anything, which would result in the creation of our unhappiness. :(
In all seriousness, thank you so much for your support. We are forever grateful.
Love, Mr. and Mrs. Muffins
