Apologies to everyone who is sick of me praising Kickstarter, because I've done it again in this week's column.
The fan-funded model is simply the most important thing to happen to independent music in years, and if you need further proof, check out the two albums I have on tap this week. Jason and Ronnie Martin turned to Kickstarter last year for help recording and distributing their first independent albums as Starflyer 59 and Joy Electric, respectively, and the results are superb. If you've never heard the brothers Martin, well, you really should, and this week, I explain why.
Check out the new column on the main site, then head back here (or head to Facebook) to leave me a comment.
