Local grunge- and surf-inspired indie rockers Heartbeater want to make a record. A record called Slow Waves. Theyve got the material; theyve got the chops. All they need is the dough. Thats why theyve set up a Kickstarter account the latest way for bands (or pet projects of any sort, really) to raise funds for the creation of an in-demand product. If the project in question meets its set monetary goal, they get to keep the money. If they fall short, then donators get to keep their pledges. Heartbeaters shooting for $3,000 in order to make their record, and as of press time, they were just shy of $2,000 and 30 backers. They have until April 28, and, by God, it looks like they might just make it. Theyve been gigging their asses off lately including this Rabbit Press-sponsored Rock the Block with the Stonesy, heavily bearded psych-rocker Majestico, folk outfit The Kopecky Family Band and much more which shows you theyve got the work ethic. Google Heartbeater Kickstarter to help the guys meet their goal.
