The Barr Brothers: Indie Band As Gunslinging Outlaws

"There's gold in them thar mixes!"

These days the term DIY is actually starting to mean something again. With record label revenues dropping and opportunities for young artists not quite as fruitful as many people might have you believe, numerous up and coming bands really are doing everything themselves. (And that’s not always a bad thing.) In a humorous nod to the unstable nature of the biz, The Barr Brothers created this short “making” of clip about their new album. It’s done in the style of a silent Western as they record and mix their forthcoming self-titled album, then embark on a frustrating quest to scare up a record deal. Whatever your feelings are about the state of the industry at the moment, it’s a fun little film with some truthful commentary.
