UPDATE

SMASHED!  ORIGINAL GOAL - $5000 - Create new album 'So Pretty

NEW TARGET! 

STRETCH GOAL #1 - $7500 - Create a double LP adding 'From the Top', a full album of swing favorites with original Good Co arrangements

Our newest album So Pretty is underway!  We're busy recording and this album is sounding good. . . better than anything we've ever done good. . . dancing around in my bathrobe and giggling madly as I listen back to new edits good (Woah, that sounds pretty good!)

It's been nearly three years since our last album and in that time we've written some pretty cool music and decided to record some of the crowd favorites we do at live shows but just never had a chance to record (until now!)  So this album has a bit of everything from a crazy dubsteppy St James to an epic keytar (KEYTAR!!!) solo in the title track.

Like a guitar and and keyboard had a child they don't like to talk about

But we need your help to get this thing actually finished!  We have some real ambitious goals for this album and some exciting additions to the band.  We've added the fabulous singer Miss Shannon O'Bent to our lineup

Joined forces with the boys in 45th St Brass for some heavy duty horn magic, 

Horns, horns, and more horns!
Horns, horns, and more horns!

and (here's something important) we are NOT planning on releasing this album to the general public any time soon!

That means for the foreseeable future this Kickstarter is going to be THE ONLY WAY to get the album.  

Will it be on iTunes?  NO

Online Stores?  NOPE

Retail Stores?  NUH-UH

We're making this album for our favorite people.  The people that support the band directly.  You!

But wait, there's more! 

We've ALWAYS wanted to put our music on vinyl and we have a master plan to do that for this album. . . but, when we hopped in the studio to record the rhythm section for the album we recorded it so quickly that we had an entire day of studio time left over!  So with that extra day we recorded an entire new album of swing covers with our original arrangements!   If we're able to reach our Kickstarter STRETCH goal of $7500 we plan to release a DOUBLE LP with our new Electro Swing album 'So Pretty' as well as our new swing album 'From the Top'

You'll be getting two crazy fabulous albums for the price of one!

'So apart from a double LP, what's all this money getting used for?'  I'm glad you asked that disembodied voice in my head!  Apart from recording, production, and manufacturing costs, any addition amount we have left over is going to go towards the following:

Music Video Production - Because to hear a keytar solo is one thing. . . to see it is another

Promotion - Get the word out about this crazy album

Live Show Production - We have some cool new things we want to bring to our live show!

New Good Co Artwork - We're excited about the chance to work with some new artists to bring a vision of Art Nouveau to the band Good Co (rhyming is fun!)

The more money we raise the more cool stuff we can make!

GOAL - $5000 - Create new album 'So Pretty'

STRETCH GOAL #1 - $7500 - Create a double LP adding 'From the Top', a full album of swing favorites with original Good Co arrangements

STRETCH GOAL #2 - $10,000 - Music Video Time!  Epic Music Video for the new album! 

Risks and challenges

RISKS! CHALLENGES!!
Mostly just production delays are the biggest risk. Other risks include asteroid strikes, global warming, and civil war interrupting the album, but if those happen you're probably not super worried about getting an Electro Swing album on time anyhow.
