Back when I reviewed Social Studies‘ set at Noise Pop 2012, I specifically mentioned a new song, “Terracur,” as a standout track. Social Studies singer Natalia told me it would appear on their new album, so I’m pretty stoked that the album is almost ready. But first, there’s a small matter of mixing and mastering the thing… and that’s where you come in.

The band has recorded 12 new songs to 2″ tape at New, Improved Recording with Eli Crews, a local producer with records by Why?, Deerhoof, and tUnE-yArDs on his resume. They’re real stoked about how the album is turning out, but they need some financial assistance to finish it proper style.

Head on over to their Kickstarter page and help ’em out, why don’t ya?
