Architects Begin Album-Writing Blog

In addition to posting a full summer’s worth of Warped Tour dates on their MySpace, Kansas City’s Architects have posted a blog about some new songs, describing how they sound, what key they’re in, what they’re about, and what pop culture references they do/do not. Example:

TITLE: Knowing Is Half The Bottle

KEY: B flat major

TEMPO: Quick, bouncy

SOUNDS LIKE: The Dictators, The Pretenders — although having never listened to either The Dictators or The Pretenders, some hacky writer will undoubtedly compare it to Teenage Bottlerocket in a tragic attempt at sounding erudite and “with it”.

YOU GOT SOMETHING AGAINST TEENAGE BOTTLEROCKET: No.

LYRICAL CONTENT: Well, the whole tune is based on a stupid pun isn’t it? So it’s not exactly Leonard Cohen…but the world needs songs to get loaded and suck-face to.

REFERENCES TO MORDOR OR THE EYE OF SAURON: None.

REFERENCES TO DUNE: None.

This is doubtlessly the work of frontman Brandon Phillips, who I am beginning to think may be the best publicist/writer in the whole of the biz. I only wish the dude would write more.
