Borken Telephone

by Rock, Paper, Cynic

Funny, poignant songs for real-life situations: like when your robot falls in love with you, when philosophy is the only thing that can save you from the zombie apocalypse, or when your game of broken telephone accidentally summons an ancient cosmic evil.

Album Notes
What if a bodiless A.I. had a huge crush on its creator but no way of expressing itself? What if you performed a love song for the N.S.A. by singing security watchwords near cameras and phones? What if a philosopher used epistemology to go on a zombie-slaying spree?

Borken Telephone answers all of these questions. It's chock-a-block full of music about the history of miscommunication by way of geeky stuff like cryptography, video games, philosophy, and Dungeons & Dragons. Some songs are funny and clever, and others are poignant and sad. A few feature special guests like The Doubleclicks, Adam WarRock, Kraken Not Stirred and Kirby Krackle!

The album culminates in a massive broken telephone songwriting chain with an epic team of musicians. Working from one base track, each songwriter was asked to recreate the song of the previous artists after listening to it only once. The songs careen off-course is ridiculous, imaginative places in a massive collaboration between Professor Shyguy, The Doubleclicks, Kirby Krackle, Sarah Donner, Alter Ego, Nerds with Guitars, Kari Maaren, Zach Sherwin, Alpha Riff, Adam WarRock, Ask Lovecraft and Tico Souza, Debs & Errol, Jason Anarchy, MC Lars, and MC Frontalot.
