This is about yet another crowd-funding campaign. This one is very interesting on several levels. In a nutshell, the objective of this campaign at indiegogo is to finance a feature-length film named Postpartum. The director is Michael Panduro, who has a long list of noteworthy music videos to his credit, as well as commercials and short films. His music videos include “Ohrwurm” for Cephalic Carnage and “Tarnished Gluttony” for Job For a Cowboy. That “Tarnished Gluttony” video, which I wrote about at length here, is still etched in my mind, one of the best metal videos of 2012.
The fact that Michael Panduro is behind this project is one of three things that made this very interesting. The second, which I’ll come back to in a minute, is the subject matter of the movie. And the third is a perk being offered at indiegogo for contributions toward the making of the film. It’s a music compilation that has drawn support from a bunch of killer bands. The tracklist was just finalized today. It includes 21 songs, six of which have not previously been released, and more than 75 minutes of music. It will be made available as a digital download at the end of the campaign for a contribution of $15.
The bands who have contributed music to the comp include Cephalic Carnage, Job For A Cowboy, The Psyke Project, Retox, Saint Vitus, and ZEUS!. The previously unreleased tracks come from Bless Yr Heart, Fuck the Facts, Kount Rotttula, Medeia, Nasum, and Rwake. Here’s the entire, now-finalized tracklist: Continue reading »
