about

Borken Telephone is full songs for real-life situations: like when your robot falls in love with you or your game of broken telephone summons an ancient cosmic evil.

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 to 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.

about

Rock, Paper, Cynic Toronto, Ontario

Rock, Paper, Cynic writes geek-powered songs for people who are bad at being grown-ups. His music covers serious topics like like having a crush on the National Security Agency or taking Netflix as a monogamous lover.

His songs sound like if Jonathan Coulton, the Barenaked Ladies and John K. Samson climbed into a van and weren't allowed out until they wrote something.
