About this project

Hello!  We are a triumvirate of sparkly madness known as Princess Seismograph and we are gearing up to record our first album.  We are throwing all of our hearts into making it a beautiful and exciting art object - recording a magnificent record and releasing it with a corresponding full-color art book with comics, paintings, song lyrics, chords, and a few surprises too!

$8,000 is the minimum amount that we need to do this project, to pay for studio time and printing the book - but if we are overfunded we will use every penny to make our record and book even more beautiful, so please consider donating even if we've met our goal!  What we really want to do is release the album on pink vinyl with a glittery pony on the album cover and a book that is 24 11"x11" pages of loveliness - the more money you donate, the more of our dreams will come true!

We are excited also about the gifts we're making for our backers, which will include silkscreened t-shirts (these will be hand printed on vintage shirts with large, colorful prints and will each be one-of-a-kind), art prints by members of the band, Princess Seismograph stickers, ingenious thank-you cards, Man Masks (replicas of a stage prop used in our song "The Man"), custom poems and drawings, roles in an upcoming music video, and more! 

To learn more about us, please visit our website at http://princessseismograph.blogspot.com/, where you will find videos of some of our performances and descriptions of other antics.  Thank you so much!

Love,

The Princess

FAQ

  • Holy cuttlefish, we've made our goal! The ponies of the world are going to fly on the wings of our elation to bring joy and candy to all our wonderful backers! It's TRUE!

    To everyone who has contributed - by pledging money, by spreading the word on facebook and in reality, by being loyal and enthusiastic fans, by thinking happy thoughts, by playing instruments on our tracks - we cannot possibly thank you enough. Your generosity is amazing and inspires us to work as hard as we can to be worthy of your support and appreciation. We are in awe of your awesomeness - THANK YOU!

    And if you're not a backer yet, WE STILL WANT YOU TO JOIN THE PARTY!

    Any more money on top of our goal might seem like just icing on the cake - but believe us, it's actually moist and delicious cake-meat of the cake itself! Every cent that our backers contribute will be used to increase both the quality and quantity of albums we produce - seriously! There is a direct correlation between how much you wonderful people pledge and how pink the vinyl, how glittery the pony on the cover, how many full-color pages of comics in the art book! So if you're sitting on the edge of the backer's pool with just your toes in the water, wondering whether to jump in - do it! The water is splendidly warm and YOU are WANTED and NEEDED in the pool!

    And for our backers, we would like to announce:

    THE SECRET PRIZE: Backers-only Bacchanalia!

    Thinking of our backers makes us feel so glowy inside, we want to throw you the party of a lifetime to show our appreciation. So (shhh!) we are planning to throw a big ol' hootenanny in Seattle in your honor, with as much fun and delight as we can squeeze out of one amazing night. We'll even take a survey of people's schedules to make the party happen at a time when as many of our backers as possible will be able to make it. There will be crazy food, drink, dancing, freestyle rap, Princess Seismograph songs played to the max, a 100-year-old banjo ukulele - who knows what other madness and mayhem! Stay tuned to your inbox for more details...
