Cat Be Damned

Cat Be Damned is the Richmond, Virginia-based recording project of Erik Phillips, who has been making short homemade pop songs about walking, praying, and the internet since their self-released cassette All His Empty Show in January 2015. In the year since, they have spent time alone in various bedrooms, kitchens, and cars writing and recording a handful of albums and EPs. The newest collection of Cat Be Damned songs expands on the project’s characteristic organ-centric pop methodology by using everything from guitars and programmed electronic drums to cell phone recordings and disguised samples of industrial air conditioners. It is called Daydreams in a Roach Motel and will be released May 20th on Joy Void.
