Local “Space Rock” band Silver Machine are no longer lightyears away from their $1,500 goal to release their album. In relative terms, they’re now within lunar distance, less than $200 from hitting their target. Just to give them a little boost as they approach their zero hour on March 3, here’s the pitch.
Greetings friends, family, and curious strangers!
We are Silver Machine, a Space Rock band from Asheville, NC. What we have here is the product of literally hundreds of hours of painstaking work, and we need your help to share it with the world. The hardest part is behind us- we’ve recorded the album and done everything necessary to prep it for release, but in order to spread these space gospels they will need to be professionally mastered and then physically replicated. If we meet our goal, we will be able to not only put an album into the hands of every person who supports us on this campaign, but also into the hands of hundreds of radio DJs and music publications the world over.
You may be interested to know that all of that music was performed live, on the fly. No laptops or midi triggers, no fancy post-productions tricks, just 4 guys with their instruments and some analog effects. While our music is often categorized as “electronic rock”, there aren’t any sounds in our mix that couldn’t have been made 50 years ago. Central to our sound, as you probably noticed, is the theremin, which features prominently throughout the album.
This album is more than just a collection of songs- it is a concept album in the vein of early Pink Floyd, a symphony of sound, a journey from start to finish that we truly can’t wait to take you on.
