Please help us fund our album and its release !

Please help us get our new record, gesture is, out !  We've been working on it for the past few years.  We've played together and known each other since we were 12 years old and we're finally finishing our first album together as a duo.  We're really excited to get it out, but are needing funds for its completion, distribution, and physical production.  We greatly appreciate any contribution you can offer in helping us achieve this goal.  Thanks so very much !

Listen to the first track on the new album, "Railways", on SPIN here.

Listen to another track on the album, "Gold", on Filter Magazine here.

Please see our video for "Outside Ones" below (directed by Montana Casey)... another track on the new album, gesture is --

If you are interested in preamps and want to order more than one... if you donate their pledge amount, tell us what you want afterwards and we can build them for you.

How does Kickstarter work?

Kickstarter runs on an all-or-nothing model, which means that if we don't meet our $5,000 goal through Kickstarter, then we wouldn't get any of the money, no one would be charged.

--

What Do You Get In Return?

Being a backer means you are actively participating in making this album. We can't do it without you, and we want you to know that you are special for helping us reach our goal. On the right-hand side of the screen, there are great rewards for pledges at different levels. Any pledge amount is appreciated!

--

How Do You Pledge?

Simply press the "back this project" button and you'll be taken to our payments page, run by Amazon.com. Then you enter the amount that you want to pledge, and select your reward.

You can pledge any amount, at least $1, and choose the reward you want. Read through each tier carefully, as we've chosen some very special rewards to offer to you.

Your credit card will not be charged until our one-month campaign is finished on September 22. *note: it could take up to two weeks for Amazon to process all the payments*

Remember, if we don't raise our goal by September 22nd, we don't get ANY of the money, and your credit card is not charged, and you will not get the pledge reward.

    A variable gain VP 26 channel that Matt & Eric have recorded with. These channels amplify a microphone signal and sound great for recording. You can drive them for a saturated tape-like analog vibe or can also get a clean signal from them as well for recording. The VP26, VP25's are the exact same circuits from the coveted mic preamps found in 1970's API consoles. Nothing has been changed, and all the "flaws" that make these consoles sound so great have been faithfully implemented into these circuits. These sell for 600$ new if you were to buy them from the manufacturer... 535 + 65 dollar op amp. Matt will build them for you at a discount here for 500$ with op amps and everything included so that you can just rack them up and use them. He can also build you a VP312, which is an exact replica of the vintage API 312 mic preamp. + you'll get a CD or Vinyl of the new album, "gesture is" and digital download codes

    A vp 26 or 312 api channel racked into a 6 or 8 space 500 series space rack. If you don't already have a 500 series rack, we will buy one for you and rack up the preamp of your choosing (312 or vp26) up for you so that it is plug and play!

    Matt can custom build you a VP28 channel. It is a VP26 channel (description above), the exact circuit for the output buss on a 1970's API console, and a high pass filter eq all in one module. We can customize what frequencies the high pass filter (eq) starts at. Stock is 40hz, 80hz, 160hz, but we built them at 20hz, 40hz, 80hz for the Office of Analogue and Digital for mix buss and mastering purposes as well as a preamp channel. + a CD or Vinyl of the new album, "gesture is" + digital download codes
