Your visit here means a lot to us. Talkative has been very busy these last few months putting together our first full length LP. We’ve recorded, mixed and mastered it and we need your help releasing it!
FROM STRANGE LUXURIES (2010)
GOTH MOTH/IN MY BLACKLIGHT
NEW SINGLE FROM HOT FRUIT BBQ!!!! (2014We’re asking for $1500. In contrast to many crowd funds, we’re really only asking for less than half of what we need! This goes almost exclusively to cutting the album on vinyl and distributing it. This doesn’t include mastering, mixing or paying for the engineer. Like we said, it’s recorded! Now it needs a way for you all to enjoy it. Should we surpass our goal we will use it to push the record further. This means that the money will be used to bring this record to you and everything beyond our goal will print extra copies and get them into physical record stores.
$800 - Mixing/Mastering
$1900 - Vinyl Production
$2700 - Estimated Total Cost
Fret not if we don’t reach our goal, persistence will prevail and we will release this record if it means selling our shoes, but please, don’t make us sell our shoes! We will use whatever we receive to put towards the record, you will still get the record if our goal is not met.
This funding will help release our record, in full color, on vinyl. This helps out Portland music in a few different ways. Jeff Bond did a wonderful job recording it. He is one of Portland’s premier Audio Engineers and created an environment which Talkative thrived in. This will help him get further in the audio world! Aaron Sullivan out of Eugene, OR is creating the artwork for the album. He’s such a wonderful artist and we love to showcase his work like we did on Light Years. Finally it will put yet another record of the current Portland music climate on the books adding to the catalog of our generations sound.
