About

$6,085

274

So, despite slowing down on releasing physical music. Plan-it-x will be releasing one LP comp each year. This comp will be filled to the edges with cool bands (see below) that I really like and hopefully that you have never heard of (and probably a few 'cool' bands to help it get out there). 


Each comp (the working title is IT CAME FROM PLAN-IT-X) will be really nice and come in a nice gatefold jacket. I'm gonna get different cool artist to do the covers and insert work (this one, the first one will be done by Emily Buckwheat) There will be a 'zine that goes along with the LP too. Bands on the comp will each do one page, and there should be some other stuff in there too. 
The comps will come with some trading cards and a new designed vinyl sticker (probably a comp sticker)

They will come with download codes of course, and the download code will include a ton of bonus material (including the runners up that didn't make the comp).

YOUR HEART BREAKS (animated queer indy pop from WA)

Risks and challenges

The release date should be DEC 31st 2014, sometimes records get delayed, but I hope to have this ready to go in advance with weeks to spare, so, there is the chance of a delay, BUT hopefully not.

Sometimes bands don't send you their songs, so there is also the chance that a confirmed band might flake and not be on the comp, but probably even if that is the case, we will use a previously released track by that band, I don't think anyone will flake out though, just letting you know that is is possible.
