In 2008, while San Francisco’s the new & Onlys were active readying Grey-Eyed Young ladies and Play It Unusual, the garage-psych group’s guitarist, Wymond Mls, was writing music privately using his eight-track Tascam residential recorder. Motivated by performers like Scott Walker, Echo & the Bunnymen, and Robert Wyatt, though Mls’ material is conducted and recorded by himself, his output is commonly sonically thick and somber, sculpted out of guitars, drums, bass, synth, and dreamy vocals, clouded in the echoes of cathedral reverb. Documenting and touring with the new & Onlys used the majority of his musical period, however in 2012 Mls finally released his initial EP of materials, Earth Has Doorways, quickly accompanied by the full-length Beneath the Pale Moon. Both had been released by Sacred Bone fragments, as was his quickly finished second record, 2013’s Cut Yourself Totally free. For his following record, Mls split time taken between saving at his house studio room and with manufacturer Phil Manley at Un Studio in SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA. Much less psychedelic and brand-new wave-inspired, 2016’s Contact by Evening was written mainly on piano, an initial for Mls, and showcased a wider selection of designs (ocean shanties, expansive ballads, gospel). It had been released in July by Sacred Bone fragments.
