Update #17

Video Testimonial from Sarah & Kunal (Chicago, IL)

Comment

My adorable (and newly-wed) friends Sarah and Kunal sent me not only the final version of their video clip for my Kickstarter video, but also a couple outtakes, which I posted on the G,NA Facebook Page! I met Sarah in St Louis when my old band Saving Face played there in 2001 or 2002. She was still in high school then, and I have since had the honor of watching her grow up into a brilliant, successful, independent woman! She met her now-husband in college, and he and I have become friends over the years by working together on various website-related projects through my old company, The Weekend Group. My, how time flies...

I love these two and I'm so grateful to them for taking the time to send these vids! Enjoy!

    14 backers Limited (86 left of 100)

    Official Sponsor status, private blog access, digital download pack, PLUS: "The Collected Demos" limited pressing CD in hand-sewn paper sleeves, numbered and signed! I did not always go by the name Gardening, Not Architecture, and in fact I recorded several demos between 2003-2007 with my friends in their living rooms, bedrooms, and closets. I even posted the demos on Purevolume under two different band names over the years: We The Living and Alma. Now, for the first and last time ever, I'm going to release these demos in a limited run of 100 CDs. Hear the original pre-2007 versions of songs like "Buried in the Basement," "If You Only Knew," "Jabberwocky," and "Great Unraveling" -- plus long-lost demos! The CDs will be manufactured, but the sleeves will be handmade and numbered/signed.

    Official Sponsor status, private blog access, digital download pack, limited edition poster, digital advance of the second album with exclusive B-side track, PLUS: "First LP: Instrumentals" the mastered, but never-before-released, instrumental version of the first album! I created this version of the album to have on file for soundtrack and other uses, but have been holding off on releasing it until I had good reason to. This is definitely a good reason! I'll be pressing the CDs through a manufacturer, but creating hand-sewn screenprinted canvas sleeves that are the inverse (black on white) of the original hand-sewn screenprinted canvas sleeves for "First LP," which you can view here: http://www.gardeningnotarchitecture.com/shop/first-lp-limited-15-00. Experience the first album in a whole new way!

    This is my Dream Amount, which would not only allow me to go to California and record my second album, but would also allow me to cover all of my living expenses AND put out an exclusive Kickstarter-only release of the second album on vinyl for everyone who donated! This version would have its own artwork with its own liner notes including the names of every single person who donated to this campaign, and would be available for only those people!
