Put the Rifle Down: Architekt (demo)

Put the Rifle DownFrom Toronto Ontario, Canadian foursome Put the Rifle Down seemingly has the incredible talent that allows them to craft non-disposable synth-pop styled masterpieces, which also happened to spark the same hibernating auditory receptors that lept to life when I first heard New Order in the 80s.

Architekt is a demo from PtRD’s upcoming ‘Selector’ album which was featured on the first edition of the SXSW ’08 compilation of tracks released to festival attendees. Unfortunately the band couldn’t attend the festival due to logistical reasons, but do hope to be back for an appearance next year.

The artwork for the new album will be pieced together by LA designer BustBright and the record will feature eight songs plus three remixes, hopefully dropping this month on Summer Lovers Unlimited. [cs]
