Phylr: Contra la Puerta
- I Was Born...
- The Field
- In a Hole
- Chapter II
When Cop Shoot Cop broke up recently it opened up a whole new realm of
opportunity for it's members to begin new solo and collaborative projects.
Phylr is one such solo venture of J.F. Coleman which features a rather
impressive array of percussion and found sound textured programming. Following
in the footsteps of such prominent dub masters as Mick Harris of Scorn, Phylr
has chosen to utilize a rather straight forward arrangement of percussion
as the core of it's sound. However, the comparison ends there as J.F
Coleman adds layered sections of strings, a random array of found sound
elements and a little bit of good old fashion elbow grease to breathe a vibrant
life into his music. He has also incorporated the vocals of Dawn McCarthy of
'Thistle' and 'Away' which give the music a very lush Pop element. Phylr is
definitely an outstanding new addition to the Invisible Records table that
should please fans of both the Dub and Drum'n'Bass scene while infusing a little
bit of worldly culture into it's listeners with it's diversity.
