about

Faux Ferocious is Reid, Dylan Jonathan and Terry. Reid plays drums, Dylan plays bass, Jonathan and Terry play guitar and sing. They love each other and they love you.

Pretty Groovy marks the first studio album from Faux Ferocious and their first LP release with Burger Records After years of subsistence recording on every broken Tascam machine in Middle Tennessee, Faux Ferocious took their figure-it-out approach to freak out rock n’ roll and hit the road to work with audio whiz Drew Vandenberg at the famed Chase Park Transduction in Athens, GA. They ate together, smelled each other and broke down the ego achieving an instinctive sound that allows expert musicianship and simple, evocative lyrics to work as one highlighting the duality of space and constraint.

This record finds the sweet spot. It is angular and arresting, it is fast, it is repetitive, it is kosmische, it is punk. It drones, it loops and swirls around. It is guitar rock for people who wonder what it would be like if Ron Asheton and Michael Rother were also in Crazy Horse. The songs on this album allow each musician to stand out without taking over. The lyrics are clear and you can follow the thread of each instrument and each word and just when it feels like it might unravel it snaps back into shape leaving you dangling you from a cliff wondering how you got there. It is music for taking drugs, it is music for cleaning the house, it is music for hard labor or quiet reflection.

“Price of Progress”, the first single off the album is a smooth as fuck look at real estate. Reid Cummings and Dylan Palmer drive this song with a locked in groove that grows tougher and tougher with each verse. Jonathan and Terry sing about home ownership in the 21st century from the perspective of an out of touch estate agent who does not realize they are selling a progress built on the scorched earth of neighborhoods bulldozed by developers who don’t give a shit about anything other then finding the next struggling block to make a couple hundred grand off of.

Faux Ferocious has been around. They have toured hard they have done it their way and they have something to say with this album. “Pretty Groovy” is just that. These guys are trying to get you moving but they are going to make you listen to what they have to say.
