I have not had the best of luck with my Kickstarter backs. I backed the Bibliotheca project which took years longer than they originally estimated. That’s fine though, because a new kind of Bible isn’t really time sensitive. A new album, however, kind of is.
I backed Loud Harp’s Kickstarter for their third album, ‘Hope where there was none’ which was a fantastic album. The only problem is that I dropped like $70 to help them (and get some sweet merch) and still haven’t seen any of the merch.
While it’s a great album, I don’t know that I’ll still be very into it by the time the merch comes around. Because again, I think this sort of thing is time sensitive.
The guys over at Loud Harp occasionally throw in a Kickstarter update, and claim the major snag is the vinyl. But what I don’t understand is how or why this delays the sending of all the other merchandise. The vinyl was just one part of the reward I selected, and to be honest, not that important to me. I don’t even own a record player.
I’m starting to have no hope, where there was some.
