Phylums – Phylum Phyloid LP Out Now!
Attention, please! It’s not often that we present the absolute first release from a band. Generally we like to wait till a particular act has a record or two under their belts, has toured some, etc etc before we jump on ‘em. With that said, here is world-debut release from this straight-up, no-frills rock n’ roll band from Milwaukee, members of Goodnight Loving, Sugar Stems, Holy Shit!, Head On Electric, and lots more! They have been playing shows around WI for a handful of years now, but since they haven’t released anything, very few people from outside their hometown have heard of ‘em! Don’t sleep on this band!
First 200 are on green vinyl and are available only at www.greennoiserecords.com

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.

2nd self titled album (first for Dirtnap)from hard-touring Ohio dark-punks. An improvement on their (also awesome) first album in every way. The fast songs are meaner and more aggressive, the slower songs are more textured and atmospheric. Impeccable recording, truly impressive musicianship (not a compliment you’ll hear us at Dirtnap throw around very often) and songwriting inspiration to burn. This goes way, way beyond the “punk kids playing post punk” thing going around these days. Fits in perfectly on the darker end of the Dirtnap Records spectrum, alongside such fine company as The Estranged, The Splits, Autistic Youth Truly an important and epic mind-bender of an album.
“There’s always a reference. I had a guy wonder to me, once, whether we all didn’t have big record collections so we’d know what to do; I told him if anything it was so we’d know what not to do, but that’s not it either. It doesn’t matter what your music brings to mind if that’s all you’re out to do- bring what’s already out there to the mind of your listener. How cheap to exist as only reference, when you know that doing so will allow the gaps in your bargain facsimile to be filled in by your listeners’ old favorites, playing on the jukebox of the mind while your pseudo-irony-dipped cassette reels around the boombox fountain. Shakespeare even said “There is nothing new” quite a while before Superchunk ripped him off so why force it? We’re all bound to similar sounds and states, a finite set of whatever rules we oh-so-inevitably choose, made infinite by the powers of imagination and music and love and hate etc. One foot in front of the other, then – one note, one step, one explosion and how that forces you to react to just that last and that possible next, how to prepare with only what we have in front of us, our minds and vicinities cleared by the resultant possibilities. We’d all play jazz for sure if we hadn’t been ruined by TV. Our whole lives lived punk in some way, each of us in our own interpretation. Obviously the music follows. Arrangements tight; surroundings random. Chance occurrences held to our breasts, you’ll never see the same seventeen minutes twice. Boys and girls, don’t grow up, and don’t ever figure it out. Nervosas are alright and so are you.” – Nervosas
