Okay, so I’ve been going on the assumption that I was going to call the album Travelogues. But the more I think about it, that makes it sound like something of a concept album, which it’s not. It also sounds like some sort of world-music thing, which it kind of is, but not really at all.
So I’ve been thinking about retitling the album Architectures And Empires, after a line from “When You Get Here” (“Architecture and empire / Nothing’s built to last”). It’s a grandiose title, but fuck it — it’s a grandiose album. And personally, I’d be more likely to pick up an album called Architectures And Empires by a band called Red State Soundsystem than an album called Travelogues.
What do you think? Tell me in the comments.
