Help The Rifle Go into the Studio

After developing a following with their lofi-bedroom recordings, Tucson indierockers The Rifle are ready to record their first studio project! They’ve reached their very modest funding goals, but there’s still time to earn some rad swag from the band for an early contribution! Thus far, no one, and I repeat, no one has puchased the option of kissing band member Ryan on the mouth. Stickers, buttons, early downloads, even credit on the album also available here.

Help the Melted Cassettes Overcome Tour Troubles

We’ve been longtime followers of Melted Cassettes. Actually, for almost as long as we’ve been a publication. They were in a car accident while on tour over the summer and lost their van, their equipment, and gained a slew of medical woes. They could use some help getting back on their feet so they can continue with their musical pursuits. Make your contribution here!
