Koenjihyakkei Seeks Funding for New Album

Koenji Hyakkei - Dhormimvishka coverGiven this band's history, we know there's no need to worry about the quality of the music, but the artwork is stunning, so you'll want to have the physical item in your collection, either in LP of CD format. The band and their American label, Skin Graft Records, are offering a variety of attractive sponsorship levels to meet a wide range of budgets.

This is a very short-term campaign — they're looking to get it taken care of in two weeks. June 21, 2018 is your deadline for getting in on this bit of tasty zeuhlness. They've got 68 minutes of music, so the vinyl version will be especially lovely, a 2LP set with a gatefold cover.

Check out the crowdfunding page for more details.
