Many give Kickstarter and like services a go. Few campaigns end up doing well -- Amanda Palmer, Parallax Sounds, Marissa Nadler, Cafe Mustache, etc. -- but we can add John Vanderslice to that crowd-funding success list. Earlier this year, he launched a campaign to fund the release of two new records: an original LP called Dagger Beach and a full cover of David Bowie's Diamond Dogs. Vanderslice asked for $18,500 and received close to $80,000! The more money he received, the more he was able to do with exclusives for backers. Some of those things included unique 4x6 photographs and songs written for backers. Both records are out now.
