  • NEW TRACK: Mini - Grunt & The Son Of Captain Blood

    4 Jul 2010, 16:22 by funnyfarm

    The Reel Banditos have released a new single called "Mini - Grunt & The Son Of Captain Blood". The song is a part of the "Indochina" concept album the band released in September 2008.
    "Mini - Grunt & The Son Of Captain Blood" is dedicated to Sean Flynn and Dana Stone.
    Here's the sory behind the song:
    On April 6, 1970 the photographers Sean Flynn (son of legendary actor Errol Flynn) and Dana Stone disappeared after traveling on motorbikes across the Vietnamese border into Cambodia to report from the war there. It is supposed that they were arrested by the Viet Cong and handed over to Khmer Rouge. Some sources claim that they survived in captivity until 1975, although other more likely sources claim they were killed roughly six months later.
    Get the song here at iTunes, or any other download store.

  • When the music industry is dead - what will replace it?

    3 Jan 2010, 22:57 by DearJessie

    Obviously the traditional music industry has outlived itself. The time when record labels were the gatekeepers of all music streaming out to our ears is in the past, being one of the best examples of it. We are witnessing a revolution in the music industry, with several new models trying to replace the old one. How will we be consuming music in the future?

    Let's look at the alternatives:

    1) The Spotify model

    Spotify is an ad-funded software-based service that allows you to stream any music for free. The ad revenues are then distributed between the music rights owners based on their share of total streams. Similar models have been adapted by web-based services like Jango or Grooveshark.

    2) The iTunes model

    This model creates an infrastructure for finding and even previewing music. iTunes,, iLike, Pandora are all part of this system. To actually consume the music your need to buy it as a download in one of the outlets: iTunes Music Store, Amazon etc.

    3) The Dreamgale model

    This really incorporates different models of one-to-one relationship between the artist and the listener. The most recent example I know is one of my favourite acts, the Swedish-Belarusian Dreamgale, who started as a mysterious act revealing very little about themselves, but recently decided to do the complete opposite. They exposed their whole music production on a blog-like website, putting up every new song piece they make for streaming and downloads by their fans. Moreover, they encourage their fans to participate in the production, and even promise to credit those who leave useful comments on the site on the back of their next release. What we get is a user-generated real-time music production, instead of classic album production behind closed studio doors.

    4) The Pirate model

    This is the illegal download model we all know. Virtually, it's a parasite that lives at the expense of the traditional music industry, slowly killing it. It may be the main trigger for change in the industry, but will it survive when its mission is accomplished?

    In my opinion, the future lies in a combination of the Spotify and the Dreamgale models. We'll have artists developing long-lasting relationships with their fans, feeding them with fresh materials and interacting with them - then using services like Spotify to earn money on plays. iTunes will sooner or later have to adapt to this, and the pirates will have little to contribute in this new reality.

    What the press says about INDOCHINA nofollow=yes

    Dig it: an all-instrumental groove-out with a theme about ‘Nam, maaaan. And believe me when I say that it being all-instrumental is this disc’s saving grace when it comes to the source of inspiration. After all, this could have turned into a heavy-handed, politically bent bad trip, and well, ‘Nam’s been done to death in both all seriousness and taking knocks in comedic circles. So sit back and dig the grooves of “Saigon ‘67,” which features some groovy percussion, and a cool, toked-out vibe. “Huey” filrts with wah-wah guitars and ’70s Zappa-esque frippery and goes down well. “Jungle Warfare” is laden with heartbeats and a spooky dank ambiance that makes you feel as if you are there. Then there’s the crunchy “Poisoned Sky” which puts R.E.M.’s “Orange Crush” into its pithy place. By the time you make it to “The Fall of Saigon,” you’ll be ripped and spent. Why can’t more artists who feel the need to crank out conceptual chunder follow the Reel Banditos’ lead and just keep their pens quiet and their instruments cranked? Ya got me, but this is one of those left field oddities worth a good listen.

    Posted by James on October 29th, 2008 No Comments Printer-Friendly

    The Reel Banditos are a unique act. Imagine if CCR mated with KMFDM and listeners will have some sort of clue what The Reel Banditos are doing during this EP. Where there are no vocals during this track, The Reel Banditos do a heck of a job creating an easy to follow narrative that is present at all points during this track. Their dedication to this sound continues through this EP, and can especially be heard (and seen) during their single, “Huey”.

    “Huey”’s video was created by the Frame Fighters, an experimental video-creation collective, and it begins with a chopper flying toward the viewer. The cut-out style that is used for the figures in the video speaks well to The Reel Banditos’ own style of music, while the portrayal of a creek (in a digitized style that clashes with the rest of the frame) speaks volumes to the eclecticism of The Reel Banditos through “Huey” and the rest of the release. The allure of The Reel Banditos extends beyond the music that is present on the EP, and as “Huey” shows, can and should be present in a multi-media presentation.

    “The Fall of Saigon” builds up in much the same way as “Huey”, with ominous instrumentation creating an atmosphere in which anything can happen. Whether it be gunshots, bombs, mines, or the like, listeners do not know. The rapid tempo that the track achieves further highlights this danger, and the Eastern flavor of the track really hammers home the theme of this release. “My Lai” has a slower flow to it than “The Fall of Saigon”, creating the image of a dignified community that has a sorrow present, understanding what events are to come. Later tracks on “Indochina”, such as “The Fall of Saigon” and “The Non Nucc”, put the cap on what is a tremendously well-detailed and dense theme album.

    Where the electronic genre has stagnated in the years following from the turn of the new millennium, The Reel Banditos are able to freshen that art form through building off of the work of storied artists such as The Chemical Brothers, Air, and Crystal Method and imbuing the earlier styles with a myriad of different styles and genres, ensuring that listeners can easily define the music that they are hearing as unique Reel Banditos tracks. I have a feeling that subsequent releases by The Reel Banditos will continue to experience and expand upon what the band touched on during this EP and that after this release, that fans of all stripes will flock to any live shows or follow-up releases that the band may come out with in the next few years. Singlehandedly, The Reel Banditos have saved electronic music.

    Viet Nam (free song released):
    The Reel BanditosViet Nam
    [video artist=The Reel Banditos]Viet Nam[/video]
    In the early morning hours of the Vietnamese lunar New Near celebrations in 1968 (31.01.1968) the North Vietnamese forces (Vietcong) began what is now widely know as the „TET Offensive" in many parts of the country, including Saigon. This was a turning point in the conflict, as public opinion in America turned against the war. It would not end until 1975.The Reel Banditos have decided to release an album titled „Indochina" that revolves around the subject of the „Vietnam War". Each song will deal with a particular aspect of the conflict and leave it to the listener's imagination to come to their own conclusions.
    „It's a sort of virtual score to a film that exists in people''s minds." says Nesto, the producer of the album.
    Why Vietnam?
    Nesto: „Well, if you look at what's happening in Iraq now you can't help
    but think that nothing much has changed and that sadly nothing was learnt by the current U.S. administration. This album is about war in general and the tragedy, mayhem and madness it invokes."

    The Reel Banditos have released a free track called „Viet Nam" to promote their forthcoming album „Indochina" which will be available in October 2008.

    New album "INDOCHINA" to be released in 2008!

    The Banditos are proud to announce that their album "INDOCHINA" will be released in October 2008. "It's been a long haul, but we've finally got the album finished and we love it.", says Nesto the producer of the album. "Indochina" is a concept album that revolves around the subject of the "Vietnam War". The first single from the album, "HUEY", will be available on the 28th of August, at the Reel Banditos Indiestore.

    130 issue of Computer Music: THE REEL BANDITOS featured!
    The Reel Banditos will be featured in the 130 issue of "Compter Music"! Computer Music is one of the worlds leading music magazines.
    The song is called "The Fall Of Saigon" and will also be included on their upcoming album "Indochina" in October 2008.
