GINGER + KEVIN ARE OKAY

We are happy to report that Ginger Unwin, who was running in the Boston Marathon yesterday, along with her husband, Kevin Unwin, lead singer and guitarist for fairweatherfriend and who was there on the sidelines supporting her, are both doing just fine and were not harmed by the tragedy on Monday. Our heart goes out to those affected by the horrific events that took place in Boston. We wish Mr. & Mrs. Unwin and safe and joyous visit in the beautiful state of Massachusetts and amazing city of Boston for the remainder of their stay, as well as a safe journey home to the desert later this week.

It was so much fun, and we hope you all had a chance to hear fairweatherfriend's music; if not, you will have to wait until March 26th!

FAIRWEATHERFRIEND FIRST LISTEN

Tonight, Monday, January 7th, KXCI 91.3FM Community Radio will play the brand new fairweatherfriend 7inch record for the very first time at 8:00pm on Locals Only. fairweatherfriend is a brand new shoegaze / dreampop band from Tucson AZ that has never played a live show, so unless you are close friends with the band, or caught the demos they posted on their SoundCloud page a while back, tonight will be the first time the world has heard fairweatherfriend. Their 7inch single is still being put together with final touches, but we received the Test Pressings just last week, and we were oh-so-excited that we asked our dear friend Matt Milner, host of KXCI's Locals Only show, if he wanted to have a first-on-air-spin with the fresh wax.

The band themselves had their first opportunity to hear their finished work when they stopped by our corporate offices earlier this week (photographs below). It was a perfect pressing, so we are all-systems-go with production. The release date is set for March 26th. If you can't wait until then, tune in to KXCI tonight at 8:00pm to listen to fairweatherfriend for the very first time; Milner will be playing both tracks from the 7inch single and interviewing the band members.

Enjoy!

GOD, WE LOVE SHOEGAZE & FAIRWEATHERFRIEND



FairWeatherFriend is comprised of four friends from Tucson, Arizona, who enjoy making (shoegaze) music together and being friends.  They also happen to be our own personal latest addiction; we freakin' love their music!  Help FairWeatherFriend gather the funding necessary to release their debut 7inch record with Fort Lowell Records!  Here is the info you need to know from their KickStarter page:



FairWeatherFriend, thought-provoking, emotive indie-rock... cultivated in the desert southwest by four vastly different fellows bonded in brotherly love.

KICKSTARTER POSTING:
Dear friends, family, curious on-lookers, etc....

As you can imagine, the process of producing a physical, recorded work of music takes time, creativity, and money!  We have made the time to get together for rehearsals and brainstorm what this process will entail.  We are tapping into our creative minds this very second, considering how best to draw each one of you into this project. That brings us to this- the money aspect is awkward to address, but difficult to overlook!  In order to accomplish the goal of releasing a record, we are shooting for $2000.  Here's how it breaks down financially when it comes to producing a vinyl record...  

$790.00 - Vinyl manufacturing/shipping
$238.55 - Lacquers/ vinyl masters
$58.30 - Polyethylene bags
$224.02 - Record jackets
$38.83 - Mailing boxes
$210.00 - Shipping records to stores for sale

These charges total $1559.70.  With a portion of the remainder amount of $440.30 we are attempting to raise, we will be paying a friend to facilitate our recording process so we can focus on instrumentation.   Finally, the last of the money will be used to ship out the rewards to you, the "backers".  

Needless to say, we need your help to partner with us to make this dream come alive.  If we meet our goal, you can rejoice with us and smile with great satisfaction.  The bad news is, if we don't receive the entire goal amount during the 30-day drive, the campaign will be over and no money will be available.  We are going to go forward in confidence with our goal in mind, so we invite you to respond!   We feel so passionately about this music and desire to share the sense of community with all who desire to join us.  Friends and family- unite!  Don't forget, strangers are welcome to donate, too!

By the way, EVERY BACKER WILL BE MENTIONED BY NAME IN THE LINER NOTES! 

We believe that in a community effort, gifts, both miniscule and massive, are a sacrifice worthy of mention! We thank you in advance for your love... 

God bless,
FAIRWEATHERFRIEND

Pledge $5 or more
Thank you, dear person! You shall receive digital downloads of our very first 2 original songs. In addition, we will send you a one-of-a-kind, personalized thank you photo. We may make a human pyramid or pose in a stranger's car without asking.

Pledge $10 or more
Wow. You're swell! We're going to send you a physical copy of the 7 inch vinyl record. This little beauty will possess splendid color, a visually pleasing sleeve, and shall contain 2 original songs. A download card will accompany it so that your iPod can feel as special as your turntable.

Pledge $25 or more
You. Are. Awesome! To thank you, we will send you the 7 inch vinyl record, complete with digital download card (because it's hard to keep the record from skipping in your car). Oh yeah, you also get a one-of-a-kind, personalized, slightly unconventional thank you photo from the band! Most importantly, you are eligible to submit a photo for potential use on the cover of the record! The theme is Tucson missions, so make it good! (Can't go wrong with San Xavier...)

Pledge $50 or more
Can''t thank you enough! But let us start by sending you a copy of this limited-run, 7-inch vinyl record. There will only be 500 of these babies on the entire planet! A digital download card will eliminate the need to take your record player to the park, thereby preventing people from staring at you on your jog. Of course, you'll also receive a unique thank you photo containing the band (possibly walking dogs or juggling). Finally, 8x10 black and white prints of all 3 photos used on the record cover! The theme is Tucson missions...That's cool!

Pledge $100 or more
Benjamin Franklin?! Wow, thank you! You get a limited-edition copy of the vinyl 7-inch record for sure. And a digital download card. And a thank you picture. And check this out- you get a private drum lesson from Ryan! Can't beat THAT. Get it? Nothing.

Pledge $500 or more
In addition to all of the goodies in the $50 package, Sean will build you a custom piece of furniture!! Yeah, you read that correctly. He's multi-talented, and you'll be the recipient of said talent. This item will be wooden in nature, and shall forever be a conversation piece in your home.

Pledge $1,000 or more
WHAAAAAAT?!!! That's NUTS! So we're giving you the recorded goods, the thank you photo, cover art prints....and how about we play a live set at your house? We'll even play a cover tune of you choice. The evening will only be complete if we bring pizza for as many friends as can legally fit inside your dwelling. Don't forget- fire code guidelines need to be followed, or Kevin will lay the hammer down!
