Today, I begin a 30-day pre-order for the new album, "A Failure."
Thanks to the wonders of technology, the generosity of friends, and some mephistophelian dealings, I've recorded a great album on a shoestring, but it's still more of a shoestring than my credit cards can handle, so any encouragement you can provide is appreciated.
Think of this, though, as a pre-order with a target., rather than a crowdfunding campaign. The album is coming out regardless, and every donation above the $15 mark gets an early copy of the album (plus some additional perks for those able to donate at the higher levels).
My favorite perk is the "Deluxe Edition" of the album, which comes with a bonus download of over two hours of bonus material, including all the original acoustic demos, instrumental mixes, alternate versions of some songs (including The Comet I Was Waiting For with a full string quartet, and a "noise mix" of The Advice Song), and a few songs that didn't quite make the cut for the album. It also comes with a limited edition t-shirt that says "a Failure" in big letters across your chest, and a signed lyric sheet!
