It´s become more and more popular to make albums with the help from the fans through funding platforms such as Kickstarter and PledgeMusic, but also by the band´s own website where you get to pre-order an upcoming album and get exclusive offers. Falling Up´s latest audio project "The Machine De Ella Project" contains 2 albums and were released between October 2012 and February 2013, "Midnight on Eartship" features 10 tracks in a more ambient style in the same vein as the previous release "Mnemos". While the 12 track album "Hours" is classic Falling Up rock that goes hand in hand with their first albums soundwise, I´d like to point out Jessy Ribordy´s amazing vocal performance on both albums. He alone, is a reason enough to listen to the music here. From what I know, their former label Bec Recordings wasn´t interested in working with Falling Up on their experimental endeavours. I think that´s a big mistake from the label´s executives because the quality this trio deliver, is pro-made and a guaranteed sonic adventure from start to finish.
