The 10 track release was a two-city effort—recorded and mixed by Kyle Urban at MotorCo Studio in Madison while mastered by Justin Carl Perkins at Mystery Room Mastering in Milwaukee. The product: a compilation of simplistic rock ‘n’ roll that shows less is more. Phylums plays with a range of surf, psych and garage rock that is effortlessly complimentary and easily gets you into a head-bopping mood. Without force, flash or doing too much, Phylums delivers an enticing, unique and standup release that shows what good, solid rock ‘n’ roll can be.
It’s a week into 2019 and we’ve already got some great surprises with music. Milwaukee garage rockers Phylums unexpectedly released a full length, “Phylums ii,” the long-awaited follow up to the band’s 2015 debut.
