Given the current state of the music industry in which record labels rarely provide funding for the recording and producing of debut albums many bands are taking the DIY approach, recording and producing their work on their own. After two years of finding and refining our sound, playing over 50 shows from Chicago to Massachusetts, and creating a 5-song demo we feel confident enough in our music to enlist the help of an experienced producer to make it sparkle.
After extensive research we are putting our faith in Kyle “Slick” Johnson to produce, engineer and mix the new album. “Slick” is extremely talented in the studio arts and has an impressive resume (Modest Mouse, Cymbals Eat Guitars, The Hives, Fischerspooner, and many more). He understands our music and our goals and will make a huge impact on the sound and feel of the album. We have already started the pre-recording process with him and are scheduled to begin laying tape in late June.
We have set a goal of $5,000 which will go directly toward:
- Studio time with Kyle “Slick” Johnson
- Mixing and mastering
- Album artwork
- Designing new merchandise
- Pressing and duplication
REMINDER: The way Kickstarter works is that you donate funds to enable the completion of a creative project and in return you receive rewards, which we designed ourselves with great care. The catch is that if we do not reach our goal within our 30 days we don't get the funds. Your credit cards will not be charged until we meet our goal.
Thank you for helping us continue to make and bring you new music. With your support our music will be propelled and we appreciate anything you can contribute!
Thank you in advance,
Yes! Each copy of the book for a $50+ pledge will be signed inside the cover by all the members of the band. (Unfortunately Rachel Carson herself is not in the band, so she won't be signing too.)
