Like a spore in a petri dish, PHYLUMS slowly cultivated in the dank basements of Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2011. With a common goal of creating stripped-down, primitive rock n' roll, members of Wisconsin acts GOODNIGHT LOVING, HEAD ON ELECTRIC and HOLY SHIT! started banging out three-chord homages to the Sonics, Creedence, the Monks...any band with a simple message and no-frills attack. Phylums took this primitive drive into KYLE MOTOR’s recording studio in Madison Wisconsin in summer 2014. It took the band under 24 hours to record their complete debut album on reel-to-reel eight track. Surfy guitar leads and wandering fuzz combined with a rhythm section of driving toms and bass make up the core instrumentation, but a shades of organ, piano, and even a vacuum cleaner add to the sonic palette. The songs, ranging from party rave-ups to off-kilter introspections, eschew the traditional boy/girl tropes of most three chord songs and instead focus on, amongst other things, alienation, the afterlife, speech impediments, and the frustrating beauty and monotony of modern life.
