West Palm Beach's main source for static and fury, the Band in Heaven, is soliciting public support to fund a new music video via Kickstarter. This comes only a couple weeks after the group's last, and successful, effort to raise monies for T-shirts.
The song in question is "Sludgy Dreams," the final song on the group's HoZac 7-inch release due in January. If you're already familiar with the speedy burst of vitriol titled "Sleazy Dreams," consider this song its dirge-y, bum-legged twin. The group is hoping to enlist the services of Alice Cohen to create a video to accompany the song, and thus we have another Kickstarter campaign!

see what we mean. We set the goal of this campaign very low so that we
