Get a fucking job.

These dudes are just starting this label and resorting to Kickstarter already? For fucks sake...God damn this scene sometimes.

Jockeying is the stupidest practice for any Indie label and these guys are doing it straight away AND with kickstarter. Wow.

I don't really take issue with it. Maybe it's not normal for a record label, but just look at it as a very safe pre-order.

Price is bad, this is the label's first major release, everything feels sketchy. Love the album, will wait until there's an actual product.

That's the entire issue. These guys obviously don't have idea what they are doing. It's bullshit, cowardly and unfulfilling for all parties involved. If they "love the record" so much, they would invest their hard earned money into a physical product they want to make a reality.

This entire thing lacks any heart or passion whatsoever.

I'm ranting because this is something I do and this kind of thing infuriates me to no end.

This reeks of cheapskate. No reward. No love. No drive.

*also, I'm not knocking kickstarter or anyone that donates. This is simply my opinion of the two running this campaign. I've seen and supported some great kickstarters.

This pressing deffinitely needs 5 different colors of vinyl!!!! I mean, just so it's WAY more expensive to press....
