So what's your story?
- We're Mechanismo a Madrid-based indie band with Chicago roots
Why the crowdfunding campaign?
We're in the final strech of something that's been in the making for three years: Our first album which will be titled The Forlorn Hope
We've recently finished recording the LP which has been 100% self-financed
We've brought together 12 tracks that are varied, cover different textures, melodies and atmospheres. Several tracks have been produced by Charlie Bautista and Manuel Cabezalí and are very much looking forward to sharing them with everyone
The following are two LP teasers to showcase some of the tracks:
But if the record is finished, why the crowdfunding?
Just having a finished LP isn't enough. Unfortunately, the small record labels are disappearing and independent projects now have to fend for themselves for production and promo
That's why we're giving this initiative a final last push in order to get the record –our first big leap– out into the world
Be a part of our dream and join us on this journey
Thank you :)
