IT CAME FROM PLAN-IT-X COMP LP

I just confirmed KITTEN CRISIS: http://kittencrisis.bandcamp.com/
for the PLAN-IT-X RECORDS “it came from plan-it-x” LP COMP for 2014…….Still working on that last band, it’s hard. I’m trying to pick music made by my friends, new things that I don’t know that well, things that fit together in a neat way and most of all SHORT SONGS so that I can max out this LP with cool stuff. So far so good, I’m really EXCITED about this project. I think it’s gonna be a really fun record to hold and listen too. Also, don’t forget that a lot of the submissions that don’t make it onto the LP itself will still be on the download as extra tracks! It looks like we have made our funding goal… BUT, the thing is, when the timer counts down, many people’s payments will fail and then the powers behind this things (KS and Amazon payments) take their cuts and it usually means a significantly less amount of funds then the number you see. So, it’s still VERY VERY HELPFUL if you fund this project. This will be my last attempt to raise fundings, if you want to be nice, please share this project through your social media outlets! THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!—————chris THE KICKSTARTER: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/942533263/it-came-from-plan-it-x-20-band-lp-comp-2014

So, despite slowing down (not quitting) on releasing physical music. Plan-it-x will be releasing one LP comp each year (at least). This comp will be filled to the edges with cool bands (see below) that I really like and hopefully that you have never heard of (and probably a few ‘cool’ bands to help it get out there). 

Each comp (the working title is IT CAME FROM PLAN-IT-X) will be really nice and come in a nice gatefold jacket. I’m gonna get different cool artist to do the covers and insert work (this one, the first one will be done by Emily Buckwheat) There will be a ‘zine that goes along with the LP too. Bands on the comp will each do one page, and there should be some other stuff in there too. The comps will come with some trading cards and a new designed vinyl sticker (probably a comp sticker)They will come with download codes of course, and the download code will include a ton of bonus material (including the runners up that didn’t make the comp). BANDS CONFIRMED SO FAR: YOUR HEART BREAKS (animated queer indy pop from WA)FREE CAKE FOR EVERY CREATURE (magical pop from Philly/NY)GHOST MICE (folk punk)LOOMING (pop punk with looming undertones)GARRETT WALTERS (queer folk from bloomington)EMPEROR X (experimental electronic traditional folk music)SUPER FAMICOM (only H.P. Lovecraft could explain this band)SPOONBOY (political folk from DC)MARTHA (pop punk’s playing pop from the UK)SPOOK SCHOOL (jangly indy pop from the UK)COTTONTAIL (NC poppy folk members of Ramshackle Glory)ROMAN CANDLES (solo peace core punk from CA)BOOGDISH (sharp-comedy-to-true-punk from Bloomington)DOGBREATH (pop music made by punks from AZ)
+6 more TBA!Get in on the kickstarter if you want to help out! or just wait!https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/942533263/it-came-from-plan-it-x-20-band-lp-comp-2014
