Indie rock artist Allee Fütterer just teamed up with creative director Emma Cole for an eight-track NFT album entitled State College 333. The collaboration album is a wildly diverse mix of everything from surf rock to conscious hip hop, and features new music from Southern California artists Dresage, Pom Poms, Clayre (Kismit), Niko Giaimo (The Astronots), Basti Reunert (Kismit), and Conny Franko.
Thematically, State College 333 takes fans on an immersive journey to the blooming artist community of Fullerton, California, giving light to this hidden gem tucked away in Orange County. The versatile music is accompanied by nostalgic visuals all captured on analog devices for a timeless aesthetic. Released on web3 in partnership with Metabyte Studios, the album includes 333 NFTs, with each owner receiving a unique combination of musical and visual elements from each track.
Fütterer confides, “I’d like people to interact with my music and creations in ways that you’re not able to do by just listening to a song. Since the scope of my musical life is very wide I see music NFT’s as a way to share creations in a more broad sense that doesn’t require an obligation to a specific genre or musical role. I’d like to use this as an opportunity to meet new fans and have them experience the culture that shaped me, both digitally and IRL.”
Allee Fütterer is a songwriter, singer and musician who has served as the bassist for Conan Gray and Mayer Hawthorne, as well as co-founding indie rock outfit The Astronots. The Astronot’s 80’s California garage sound made its way on film and TV, including CBS’ Life in Pieces and A24’s Under the Silver Lake. Emma Cole is a creative director who specializes in all things nostalgia. Her obsession with analog cameras, film and devices that require you to get it right the first time brings the timelessness of film to the Web3 space.
