Car Phyte
Fail [CS; Brain Plan]

I just read a review of this tape wherein you could tell the writer listened to the first few minutes then put down his pen after jotting down a few sentences mentioning Brooklyn and that though it wasn’t to his tastes there likely is a scene for Fail, by Car Phyte. Don’t make the same mistake. Give this ambitious act a try and you’ll be surprised at their generosity spanning several influences and generations, from Sonic Youth to lofi soul to jagged mutant dance to bedroom 4-track tapes. Some might even have dubbed this chillwave a few years back. The trick: Instead of merely whirling a few styles together, the mixture feels organic, a term many musicians aspire to use when describing their wares that so rarely applies. I’m feeling love for Car Phyte right now, and the fact that their experiments might be a chore for some of you to sit through is all the more reason to give them a try and expand yr mind, man.
