Faux Fir- These guys met over the computer on Craigslist and play music that sounds like it was written by computers. With chunky synth parts that would make the Mario Brothers weak in the knees, this is the perfect record for the guy who has to make it to level three of Castlevania to hear his favorite song.

Milwaukee quartet Faux Fir recorded its debut EP this year with Decibully’s Ryan Weber. Spring-loaded with bright keyboards, grinding bass and glammy disco grooves, the EP plays like a digitalized, more danceable reimagining of Phoenix’s Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix.”

Dammit man, Milwaukee is like, the best place on the whole of the planet. Possibly all the other planets, too. But it’s possible Mars boasts The Capital Of Great Foghat Cover Bands so we can’t say for sure…

Last eve, Eric & Magill (of, you fucking guessed it, Milwaukee) filled in fans on the fact that they were, right that very moment, in a studio recording a split 7? between The Fatty Acids and Faux Fir. My brain churned and wondered, “Faux Fir, WTF?”. My brain pressed me to investigate, despite the pile of dishes to my left and the fold out couch bed to my right that STILL has not been folded away, and because my brain is like, the smartest ever, I did so. Dudes…
Faux Fir. Instant love. Amazing jam-ability. I feel like my hard-on for this band, after hearing only 6 songs, is akin to my boner for Solid Gold. It makes little sense, I myself do not understand, and yet we find ourselves here — me introducing Faux Fir and you listening. Then bobbing your head. And downloading. I hit that download button jams unheard because typically, I do whatever Ryan Weber/Eric Osterman tell me to and it’s obvious I’m gonna get a good run out of these jams. Join the club, kids. - Folk Hive

Bio

An annual meeting at the United States Bowling Congress (in Greendale, Wisconsin in 2008) brought Adam Bartell of (Portland, Or.) and Ryan Rupprecht (of Minneapolis Mn.) together, (their parents were/are congressional members from their respective districts.) Yet it would be a couple years later that they would form "faux fir" over a shared love of Dancing With the Stars, synthesizers and Happy Days. Realizing that Earsure had corned the market on synth duo's in the 1980's, they rounded their sound out with Will Boucher (bass,) and Jake Brahm (drums.)
