Kinch has always been an ambitious band. Still, I was almost taken aback by the Phoenix piano-pop outfit's latest project, a remix/b-sides collection called Ziptape.
Not only is the music awesome -- a live acoustic version of the rare track "Oh Boy" (one of my favorite songs the band has done) is a true treat, as is a b-side called "Taxi" and a remix of "Tie Me Lightly" by Daggrr -- it's available for free download here.
And not only is a free version available, they're pressing a limited run of CDs available for $10. Oh, and there's a $25 deal that pairs the CD with a T-shirt designed by local merch master Sam Means.
And for $100, they'll write a song about you. That deal is limited to the first 10, which would make for a pretty good Ziptape: Volume Two if you ask me.
