Help release our 2nd album, recorded by Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Destroyer, Frog Eyes) & we'll send you a copy on CD/VINYL, a Thankyou Card,..+

(above video we made for "Inner Journey" from our new album "Fools". For better sound/video quality visit Youtube )

We have 14 new songs (available for listening and free download on Myspace , & falcaoandmonashee.com), and now we need some help to get the album pressed!

"FOOLS" is the realization of our dream to record a live studio album together. It has been a work in progress since early 2008 when we began writing as a duo on Galiano Island, on Canada's pacific coast.

Last year our self-recorded, self-released debut charted on CMJTOP200 and Earshot Top50, and got some nice reviews ("Rooted in psych-folk but looking dreamily forward" - Exclaim, and rated 7/10 - Ondarock, 9/10 -Foxy Digitalis. The Georgia Straight called our music "Post-gregorian art-Goth", and WRUV Vermont called it "A haunting album that has an original...yet undefinable sound that adds some mystery to the music".).

OUR PROJECT

Since then, we've finished up a bunch more songs in Vancouver and recorded our 2nd album, in December 2009, at the Hive studios with engineer Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Destroyer, Frog Eyes, Sleepy Sun).

Captured "live-off-the-floor", using zero overdubbing, with simultaneous vocals and instrumentals performed to bass, guitar, and organ loops and samples; the songs feature many of the same instruments from our first album (Monashee's banjo, mandolin, harp, violin, keyboard), plus introducing a Kootenay Mountain Dulcimer, some Vancouver crows, soundclips taken from Youtube(Queen Elizabeth II of England and Tibetan Longhorns from the Himalayas), as well as some gong, bells, and tibetan cymbals and other instruments of M's parents which we recorded on a trip to the mountains around Halloween 2009.

We spent all our pennies on the recording, and now we can't afford to release it without your help.

Funds raised will be used for Mastering and Pressing on Limited 12" Vinyl, as well as CD...

Any additional $$$ if raised will be used towards touring. We would LOVE to play in your town...

We'd be so glad to be able to send our record to you, and our next one!...we're already starting to work on some new ideas for another album.

As with our first album, the cover art for Fools has been designed by Monashee (with photos taken by her), and we will try again to use Enviro-friendly packaging (waterless printing, veggie inks) and to keep all production costs to a minimum and the items will be shipped to you ASAP.

We're also offering pintings, gueslits for life passes, and other rewards for helping us out!

Instrumentation:
Monashee Sun: keyboard, harp, mandolin, violin,
mountain dulcimer, banjo, vocals, effects
Rodrigo Falcao: bass, guitar, organ loops,
