Can't Maintain

 
Written By: Jason: Thursday, 8 October 2009

Artist: Andrew Jackson Jihad
Album: Can't Maintain
Release Date: Oct. 13th

With the imminent death of the music industry, as we know it, looming in the visible distance, the more savvy bands out there have already begun exploring new ways to keep music alive.

Andrew Jackson Jihad is technically considered a folk-punk band; an interesting classification that is as much of an oxymoron as jumbo shrimp. Nonetheless, AJJ is becoming increasingly popular thanks to their talent and (perhaps more importantly) their approach.

The band has two official members but any AJJ song you listen to will feature far more than two musicians. The reason being that AJJ is a musical collective -- a new approach that is gaining popularity in the underground. Essentially, the two members write the songs but they welcome musical input for a number of collaboraters.

Although you can buy their new album, Can't Maintain, a relatively short internet search should provide you with a free downloadable version, which is another popular tendency of the musical collective approach. Everything is kept DIY, kept underground and kept about the music...not about making a buck. How can the music industry possibly compete?
