I'm still mad that Young Knives' fantastic last record Ornaments from the Silver Arcade never got released in the U.S. (though we featured a song from it).  They've been doing a lot of experimenting with ambient sound recording and have even created a custom synthesizer from all of the sounds they gathered.  Their extremely entertaining Kickstarter campaign invites you to contribute towards the completion of their forthcoming album Sick Octave. You can get everything from a download of the record to one of the aforementioned custom synths  for your contribution. Plus, you'll have the satisfaction of supporting true artists who are going it alone.
