From Phased Out
Twenty years after leaving the music business to follow a career in acting, Rob Munk is back with an even more personal record. Written and recorded during the pandemic and the following months, Phased Out offers a great selection of indie rock masterpieces that we’ve been waiting for all this time. Recorded alongside two friends, who just happen to be writer, artist, and performing musician Daniel London of Old Joy, Manhattan, and Minority Report, plus drummer Joe Ventura of Tinsel who’s also a writer and director. Finding a happy home on the Magic Door label from the New Jersey independent scene, the record was mixed by Oakland’s Chuck Johnson at Cirrus Oxide. The midway mark for the twelve-track record, Youth offers a sense of the whole with a dose of explicit lyrics. This radio edit is safe for the family.
It starts with a crack of snare and cymbal to bass rhythm. A sunshine guitar opens with a steady strum-beat that elevates with progressive melody. A wave of vocal washes over with an indie-folk composition as the lyrics rise and fall in semi-familiar melodies. The evolution of music steadily builds with passion and feel as the guitar revolves on the rock n roll chords. Extra layers of melody thread through the mix that mirrors the vocal line with hand-in-hand development. Youth is a happy and breezy song that chugs along at an easy street pace and lifts the spirits with a fun video.
