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.
