Help get our new album mixed, mastered and printed.

I’ve been working on Disgust for about a year now. The final version will have 12 tracks, and will be funky and meaningful. (There are snippets of four of the unmixed songs in the video above.) The album will feature production from Joe Rogers, and vocal production from Michael Angelakos of Passion Pit. Musicians/friends from ARMS, Harlem Shakes, Darkside, Glass Ghost, El Topo, The Great American Novel, Mojo Lorwin and other bands have rolled through to help ‘sprinkle some magical fairy dust’ on the songs. My dream is to have this album mastered and released with the same sort of attention-to-detail that we’ve put into the creation of it.  Here is a breakdown of the finances. Shut the door. Have a seat. Cigar?:

Mastering LP (CD)       $1,250  

Mastering LP (vinyl)    $495    

LP Jacket and Inserts   $925    

LP production (500)     $3,000  

LP plastic sleeve       $160.75        

CD production (1000)    $2,820.05 (eco - paks)

8,000 dollars will make it possible for us to finish this project and bring it into the world. Thank you for any contribution you’re able to make. You are really something. 

See you in the music, 

Brent
