Default ITT: We talk about Red Bull and AWOLNATION...

I'm just wondering if music as a whole could improve or have a positive change if more labels gave their artists 100% artistic freedom such as Red Bull allows AWOLNATION to do. Their album is all over the place but it's amazing.

Thoughts?

Google AWOLNATION, listen to first Youtube post and realize it is THAT song you have been trying to find for a long time but never knew the name or artist.

I would bet a good amount of money that Red Bull does NOT give AWOLNATION "complete" artistic freedom to do as they please. If you notice, AWOLNATION is an independant pop group whose members have/still are playing in indie pop bands.

If you look at Red Bull, you'll notice that they have incredible marketing skills. In order to appeal to the fanbase of AWOLNATION, I bet Red Bull is making it appear that they are giving the group 100% freedom in order to tug at the hearts of the fanbase. "Ohh Red Bull is so cool because they support the creativity of my favorite indie band" says little Jimmy EK4. As a result, Jimmy EK4 feels the need to go out and support Red Bull because he feels they are supporting his favorite band by fostering creativity.

Record labels are NOT signing bands to promote artistic freedom. If the band is not making them money, they'll drop the band off the label without hesitation. If the band IS making them money, then they will keep putting on gimmicks like this.

This reminds me of the Nike ad where Nike Advertising "gave" a film maker an obscene amount of money to make a commercial and he "ran away" and travelled around the world instead. Then made a Nike commercial with him travelling around the planet on their dime. People actually believed Nike was cool with that

If their record label (Red Bull, who I didn't even know had a record label) lets them have all that freedom, good for them.

Yeah...just not my type. It's slow and sounds depressing.

And what tron_ said about the labels - that's how I see it too. If the artistic freedom is pulling in the $$$, then have at it.

see, that's what i like about the cd.. it's a mashup of different styles. one song will be sad panda, the next borderline dub, the next campy party anthem. i appreciate the randomness of it

Redbull sure has done a good job of making this world a whole lot cooler. That music is pretty good but it's not exactly my type of jams. I bet my sister would love it though.

I never heard of it either. I drink them every now and then, I support them 100% too though. The philosophy behind what they promote has a really positive message and they do it with class.
