A lot of small bands these days use sites like Kickstarter
to fund their albums, but for the members of Green Paper
, raking leaves seemed like a much better option—or, at least the best option to subsidize an album while avoiding noise complaints from the neighbors. They released their first album, Fire
, in 2010 as the first in a series of five concept albums, and the members have now begun releasing singles off of the second album, Water
, most likely to drop next year.
