Have you heard about this now fully funded Kickstarter card game? Brian asked that we invest a few months ago and I finally got around to actually reading into what we bought. It not only got 100% funded, it got 10,000% funded. For a card game that seems pretty crazy right? I have to say I cant wait to play it, the game looks pretty funny and entertaining and I bet it will be the next Cards Against Humanity (which was also funded through Kickstarter). What do you think?
Thanks to everyone’s help, the Kickstarter for the new Palaxy Tracks album was successful and Brandon will be releasing it some time early 2015. The album is on pre-order at www.palaxytracks.com in either digital or vinyl format. It’s funny how tapes and cd’s have been left by the wayside while vinyl remains the physical alternative to a digital download.
As a bonus Brandon has released a music video for the track The Afterlives, available now on their website and youtube. That’s the good news. The bad news, I can see how the video isn’t all that approachable for a general audience. It’s basically a bad vhs video of a woman in zombie make up which skips around a lot. So if you’re into the artsy vibe of it, check it out and enjoy, if not I’ll understand if you just want to let it play in another window while you watch something more pleasant.
The Palaxy Tracks aren’t very well known but their album Twelve Rooms has some of my favorite music of all time. Their songs are light, melodic with beautiful lyrics, akin to Pedro the Lion and Radiohead. Unfortunately they haven’t put out any new material since 2005.
There’s good news though, The Palaxy Tracks are working on a new album, Wilderness. The album is being funded by Kickstarter and they’ve still got a ways to go, so please check out their pitch and help them if you can. The best news for me is that Wilderness is going to be put out on 180 gram vinyl! As many of you know Hannah and I love our vinyl collection and the rich sound, artwork and experience you get along with it.
