we love you: part one

$1
per month
Includes:
  • MONTHLY UPDATES
    • We’ve revamped our newsletter. It’s no longer a bland info dump. It’s actually us writing things we think are interesting. (Had a lot of space left over where the tour dates used to go.) You’ll be the first to get it, which includes news about releases, new videos, tours, and ticket pre-sales.

  • MONTHLY BLOG POSTS
    • We have the time and space to flesh out some bigger picture ideas. Think of it as twitter without the character limit, instagram without you having to see our sculpted beach bods, facebook without all the pleading and salesmanship.

  • LIVE RECORDINGS
    • Live Mipso exists! Lately we’ve been traveling with great engineers who have helped snag some live shows. We’re sifting through and preparing their unveiling. Some of these are shows hot & fresh, including the new arrangements of old tunes so we actually like them now. Some of the shows are from back when we wore khakis. We are not afraid to embarrass ourselves for your listening pleasure.

  • MIPSONG STORIES
    • All of these songs have a background story, and we may have told a few of them at shows here and there, but we’re going to put them together a little more formally. These’ll be mini-docs (of very low quality, don’t worry) with the stories of individual songs, early version snippets, the recording process, and some recorded FaceTime videos of us chiming in on their evolution. If you love a song, you’ll probably love the episode about it. If you hate a song, you’ll probably be bored. But...we’ll do it for multiple songs so that the odds improve for you, discerning listener.

  • VOTING ABILITY
    • Sometimes we'll be needing your opinion on how exactly we should be living (very small parts of) our lives. Which cover to learn? Should we release a recording of a particular show? Should Joseph eat a ton of ice cream even though technically dairy consumption makes him gassy? You get the idea. Fan polls. Voting matters. Seriously please vote in November - and here too!


    In general, each offering will be delivered at least quarterly, unless otherwise specified.

we love you: part two

$5
per month
Includes:
  • All offerings in part one and...

  • DEMOS & UNRELEASED TRACKS
    • We’re excited about this one. Every time we’ve been in the studio we’ve recorded more songs than we need for the album, which means there’s a bunch of unreleased studio tracks out there that we’ve never quite known what to do with. Obviously, at some point we decided that we didn’t want you to hear them...but times have changed. Now you can have our warts and weirdos (and some that we love but just didn’t quite fit!) We’ve also got treasure troves (or trash heaps) of demos and first drafts while tunes were being workshopped. All yours.

  • MIPSO LIVECAST AKA HAPPY HOUR
    • We’ve been missing each other so much we want to recreate some van time like the goodle days. Not the part where Wood is blaring jazz, for some reason, to keep himself awake in the driver’s seat, or when we all have our headphones on. We’ll give you the part where we’ve all recently been fed and had a pee break and feel fortified if only momentarily, to look another human being in the eyes.

  • MIPSO UNIVERSITY
    • Sorry, we tried to think of a better name. We’ll be individually hosting hour-long sessions around specific themes. Some will be musical, others will not. Jacob on natural wine, for example. Also including Yan Westerlund (our drummer boy) and Mark Goodell (mixing/audio guy) from the extended Mipso Universe.

  • WELCOME GIFT
    • It might be some out of print stickers. It might be a postcard that we bought at a gas station outside Missoula and forgot to send to our mom and now have leftover for you. It might be the sweaty (unwashed) oxford Jacob wore during the infamous 11 minute “Do You Want Me” jam on 4/7/12 that the real heads have been posting about on the forums for years...you know you want to find out.

In general, each offering will be delivered at least quarterly, unless otherwise specified.

we love you: part three

$20
per month
Includes:
  • All offerings in part one and two and also…

  • SURPRISE MERCH GIFTS
    • You’re giving us a gift by joining the Fanclub, cause now we can identify the inner group who will actually appreciate our weirder merch ideas that usually don’t make it past the managers.

  • ALBUM RELEASE ACTIVITIES
    • We’ll have to figure out what platform this works best on. Details in the works. Basically (drumroll…) the new album comes out in October--we’re finishing mixing it now--and we want to have one (some?) virtual listening parties for y’all to be the first to appreciate our new baby. Listening sessions + Q&A afterward? Listening session where we chime in between or during tunes like a DVD director's cut with stories? Probably would be annoying if you actually want to listen to the music. We’ll obv have to host the audio so it’s not shitty streaming quality….we’ll figure it all out. We’d love for you to “be” there. (Also there will be a limited edition first run of vinyl that includes extra cool shit that makes the printing too expensive for our label--otherwise lovely folks-- to let us print all of them quite so expensively...you’ll be the first to get dibs.

In general, each offering will be delivered at least quarterly, unless otherwise specified.

About Mipso

We’ve spent our 20s mostly living together in a van. Occasionally hotel rooms and stages. Now we’ve been off the road for the longest stretch since 2013 (12 weeks and counting) and we’re starting to miss each other. More to the point, we’re starting to miss y’all. We can’t talk with you after a show, and the Instagram comment section doesn’t always feel very natural. So we figured it’s time for a more formal home base. Welcome to the Mipso Fanclub. Sign up if you can afford to--and make sure to include your address. Our gifts of gratitude will be digital--unreleased tracks, demos, classes, time to video chat--and physical (it’s a secret). A huge thanks to y’all. We’re getting excited to talk more soon.
