Jonathan Phillips, Dylan Palmer, Terry Kane and Reid Cummings are fairly normal dudes that met as students at the University of Tennessee. Since forming Faux Ferocious, the Nashville-based psychedelic blues punks have released music via Burger, Infinity Cat, and Striped Light. Last year’s Cloning the Rubicon was a muggy collection of spellbinding, brain-liquefying recordings likely tracked in a pay-by-the-hour motel room on Murfreesboro Pike; warm, dosed Icehouse in one hand, cheap guitar in the other. Hairy hypnotic rock ‘n’ roll that will still slap you into a pause. The best kind.

Faux Ferocious will release their latest EP on 12” this Friday via Drop Medium Records. “Me and Jonny” finds the band surfing deeper into the void on a groove closer to the kind carved out by Jaki Liebezeit and co. “Solvency” whips up a motorik thrall fueled by Faux Ferocious’ textbook oddball-blues riffing. The same goes for “Big Kahuna.” This is chooglin’ that will have you spinning off the front porch, foaming at the mouth. photo/Joseph Coakley
