After releasing the very good EP “It’s Not So Simple” last fall, New Haven band Beijing is nearly finished recording its full-length debut. All that’s missing is the money to actually release the album.
To that end, Beijing has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $3,000, which will pay for producing CDs and “launching a full U.S. press campaign,” which may well mean hiring a publicist to help spread the word. All contributions of $5 or more get an early digital copy of the first song, “Acrobat,” with various other goodies including a special limited-edition t-shirt ($25), a house concert ($500), all the way up to executive producer status if you feel generous enough to front the whole amount.
The band has raised $510 so far, with a deadline of July 20 to come up with the rest. You can contribute here.
