Borken Telephone

"truly epic ... just such a great album!"

"dazzling wordplay ... an excellent nerd rock record" -Dork Shelf

Borken Telephone is an album of funny, poignant songs for real-life situations: like when your robot falls in love with you or your game of broken telephone accidentally summons an ancient cosmic evil. It's also a massive songwriting experiment ft. the world's geekiest musicians.

What is Borken Telephone?

What if a philosopher used epistemology to kill zombies? What if you wanted to get a love note to the N.S.A.? Rock, Paper, Cynic's debut album asks the pointless questions so you don't have to, slinging songs about philosophy, cryptography, video games and more.

The album ends with an epic game of musical broken telephone: 17 musicians rewriting new versions of the same song in a continuous sequence. The catch? Each artist created their own version after hearing the previous artist's version only ONCE. The result? Gleeful music mayhem.
