Support: 'At the End of Days' a jazz tribute to Animal Crossing by Zac Citron

Fund an album more underground than KK Slider.

If you are a fan of Animal Crossing, or just damn fine music, be sure to check out the latest kickstarter by Zachary Citron. You may remember Zac from his previous success at funding the well received Okami tribute Shinshu in Bloom.

This time around, the group of Zac and his trusted artist Elie are seeking a relatively small $1,200 as their goal. Rewards for pledges range from $5-1000. The former netting you an early album release, while the latter (which would fund the album essentially by itself) offers one wealthy backer the chance to direct Citron's next album with songs of the backers' choosing.

At the time of this writing, At the End of Days has 17 days left, and has reached nearly $500 of their 1.2K goal. Be sure to donate soon, I have to wonder how many folks lost some time off their lives from last minute Kickstarter pushes.

Get a taste of one of the two preview tracks available now on their Kickstarter page. Listen to the first take on "Isabelle's Story" below

Support: Kickstarter fundraiser for Shinshu In Bloom: An Okami Remix Album

On the official Kickstarter page, Citron says, "It's awe-inspiring how well done and immersive [the Okami soundtrack] is. I want to, potentially, bring this amazing soundtrack to someone who wouldn't have heard it otherwise."San Francisco based musician Zachary Citron, AKA Zencha, is looking for supporters to help fund production of a fan made, jazz-hop remix album of music from the game Okami. Shinshu In Bloom, Zencha says, will be 14 tracks from the Capcom game Okami, rearranged in the style of "underground/Jazzy hip-hop."

Perks for donating to the project include pressed copies of the album, and higher donor tiers can look forward to limited edition artwork and posters.

As a fan of a variety of beautiful but incredibly niche games such as Okami, I have felt first hand the fervor and passion with which fans cling to such once in a lifetime experiences. Perhaps this is why less popular titles always seem to be a haven for the more experimental musicians out there. This fusion of jazz music and hip hop beats all in tribute to Okami may be a perfect complement to a game with a small but diverse crowd of fans.

The Shinshu In Bloom: An Okami Remix Album project will be funded if at least $1,500 is pledged by Sep 5. Enjoy two preview tracks from Shinshu In Bloom below.
