Turtle Stand CD
Phantom Phunk’s sophomore album, “Turtle Stand”, supplies a unique listening experience reminiscent to the analog 90’s sound found in groups like The Killers, Arctic Monkeys, and the Flaming Lips. The album documents an extremely personal side to the group, encapsulating the humility and skepticism of the members’ everyday lives. Despite the “everyday life” theme, the album as a whole is a relatively wild experience. It begins with “Back Seat Sax”, an instrumental that evokes the sensation of an adrenaline fueled get-away car chase. A string of heavy hitters follows suit with “My Hands”, “Sleepy Willow” and “Turtle Stand” sweeping through a spectrum of moods. The second half of the LP offers some more upbeat moments with “Memory’s a Ghost” and “Steep Your Body”, yet, clearly differs from the first half with its more somber tone, dense layering, and moments of musical abstraction. The overall effect is a curious compound of exhilaration and broodiness that feels genuine and relatable.
"The album Turtle Stand is kind of that cathartic journey that everyone needs every now and then, and that’s totally what it is: a journey. It’s a dynamic tour de force–giving you an upper with tracks like “Back Seat Sax” or “Turtle Stand” and then bringing you back down with “Steep Your Body” and “People Watcher.” You know those rock operas that make you feel your whole range of emotions? That’s what Turtle Stand does, and the fact that a band can show so much range on a sophomore album is impressive". https://leftbankmag.com/2017/11/06/sounds-phantom-phunk-turtle-stand/
