Formed from the fiery wake of a 12-guitarist take on Link Wray's "Rumble" at the 2010 Instro-Summit, Phatlynx are a greasy slice of reverb-laden rock 'n' roll led by ex-Southern Culture on the Skids multi-instrumentalist Chris Bess. Wray's signature surf-abilly is the base, but Phatlynx adds some chicken-fried backwoods flavor, evident in their ode to "Gravy." While Wray and Bess' other act, Killer Filler, are pure instrumentalists, Bess will occasionally bust some vocals. This quartet of scene vets feels wild and unkempt, wavy strands of melody fluttering behind the crackle of guitar. It's a raw, primal sound that doesn't require much thought, activating your id. —Chris Parker
