Electro Rock Act Paris And The Hiltons Releases "Reading Journals, Part One: Puzzles Of Ithaca"

Phil Jourdan of the UK electronic rock act Paris and the Hiltons announced the release his third album, "Reading Journals." The album is being released in three stages, and upon completion will boast 22 tracks. The first installment, "Reading Journals, Part One: Puzzles of Ithaca" features 7 songs that are based loosely on William Faulkner's book Absalom, Absalom.
Commenting on how his latest album is different from the prior two, Jourdan responded, "This album really has scope. It's a twenty-two track work and includes jazz, rock, electronica, weird avant-garde stuff, ballads, jams, IDM beats, and so on. It sounds different from what people would have expected from us, but I think it sounds better, too. And the focus on literature is important as well, because it let us go in a direction that most people don't think of going." He continued, "Basing the album on works of fiction meant I had to reread things, figure out what I wanted to focus on, and discard themes in those books that I knew were important but that didn't particularly move me."
"Reading Journals, Part One: Puzzles of Ithaca" is available for download at Bandcamp.com at http://parisandthehiltons.bandcamp.com/album/reading-journals-part-one-puzzles-of-ithaca. "Prettyface Tinybruise" and "Fracture and Slice" are both available for purchase at iTunes.
