Showcasing your music at SXSW in Austin is no mean feat, it’s not cheap and bands making that leap need to make every penny count. Three albums and five years down the line Edinburgh based band Meursault feel the time is right for them to head over there and fans will no doubt agree that with a growing US fan base it’s time they pushed the boat out. To help them on their way they have started a Kickstarter campaign to help raise the funds to ship them over and plan to do an East Coast Tour following their showcase.
As with all these campaigns the band are offering some great goodies in return and this includes fans helping to choose tracks for a new album called The Organ Grinder’s Monkey. Everyone who chips in will vote for up to five songs, and the winners will be on the record, along with one Meursault song and one cover chosen by special contributors who make an extra donation.
