Telepathic Teddy Bear: The Course of Empire

A cacophony of eccentric melodies and stylings, The Course of Empire translates beats and imagery into good music that moves our inner cores. This five-track thematic album by Telepathic Teddy Bear is based off the series of art paintings by Thomas Cole, which played a big part in reflecting popular American sentiments in times when many considered pastoralism as an ideal phase of civilization, fearing that an empire would lead to gluttony and inevitable decay. The song titles in the album are adapted from the titles of Cole’s paintings.
