UPDATE: Below are videos from the first demo session for the album (there are two videos in the playlist, make sure to watch both!)
Urbana's Grandkids are gearing up to record their first album, but need your help!
We’re a four piece indie, humblecore band from the lovely town of Urbana, Illinois. We’ve been described as spacey and organic, with a touch of warm folk. Since forming in early 2010 we have worked hard writing songs, distilling our sound, and playing shows around the midwest. All while maintaining a vibrant role in our local music scene!
So far, we’ve made two EPs (embedded below), but after almost two years of writing and performing we have more than enough material to finally record a full-length. Our new songs express what we want Grandkids to be, which is encouraging! But, like most musicians, we don’t have the financial means to do it the way we want.
This is where you come in. The funds we raise with this kickstarter will go towards:
- Recording time in Chicagoland studios
- Mixing & Mastering
- Manufacturing CDs
We plan on recording during the winter of 2011-2012 with a projected release date in late spring or early summer. We're so very excited!
A preview a what you can expect from the full-length!
