tunes i like tuesday: morning

Brooklyn-based Northwood, an up and coming Americana-roots-indy-country-folk band, is currently partnering with Kickstarter to raise money for a full-length album.  The song below, "Morning" is from their EP, Pond Life, which you can buy here.

Kickstarter is a funding platform for music, art and other creative projects.  It allows fans to have a vested interest in the outcome of a project.  Backers pledge financial support, thus adding to the collaborative financial effort.  Many times the artist involved will offer a thank you gift for the support.  For example, a $10 pledge to Northwood will get you a digital copy of their album (assuming they reach their fully funded goal).  You'd spend that much to buy it anyway and you get to help the band reach their goal.  It's a win-win situation.  (Higher amounts bring higher rewards.)

Check out Northwood's promo video for their Kickstarter campaign, which features their song, "Morning".  If you enjoy their music, consider contributing to them. (Or at least have a look around and see who else is asking for support.  It really is a tremendous way to be a patron of the arts.)
