American Reich - Jungle Law Syndrome OUT TODAY!
Jungle Law Syndrome is a solo project I'm working on. The first album will be AMERICAN REICH VOL I : RISE. The title track is out today on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, YouTube etc.
American Reich started out as a novel I was working on in 2013/14/15 . I did a lot of research, wrote a couple of chapters but couldn't find a convincing, plausible way to tell the fictional story I wanted to tell about America's hard-right shift. Who knew that all it would take was Trump. I certainly didn't think DJT would inspire the right as much as he did. One of the times he thought about throwing his hat in, in the late 90's, I was all for it. In 2015 I saw him as a less articulate Pat Buchanan, who I liked to watch and read sometimes.
Once I gave up on the idea of a novel I thought well maybe I can make an album or a few albums out of this. Once the election was over and all sorts of things started to happen, be said, people crawling out of the woodworks etc, I thought it'd be good to combine all these elements with what I had imagined a few years back and see where I could take it from there.
American Reich the song is only the beginning and I'm excited to see where I can next take this. I've already got a few more tunes fleshed out and plan on releasing AR Vol 1 : RISE in a few months. So sit back an enjoy a ride through a dystopia.
I wrote the tune and recorded everything myself. It's truly a solo project and a home studio in that sense. My friend JC Ondiviela gave me hand mixing. It still has that home studio/demoish loose vibe which I like. As things progress I suspect production will improve. Drums, for example, I used an Akai MPD218 and then edited what I played in Logic (The DAW I use to record, sketch etc) Thanks for listening.
Here's the tune on Spotify.
Here's the lyric video.
