"Whole Horse Both Barrels" is phOGs open love letter to classic rock, country western music, the 70s and heavy metal. Recorded over the course of 2019, and maybe some of 2018, re-visiting songs previously demo'd before Zach was in the band, and rolling out some more fresh material for an easy 30 minute listening experience, of 5 songs that flow right into one another, we hope you enjoy the journey." - Adam Mundorf - Guitar/Vox
All songs were written, produced, and recorded by phOG via the Tascam 388 reel to reel in the basement of The Convent in Portland, Oregon.

“Phog though, that comes paired with a psychedelic sprawl that feels all the more niche for the lap steel guitar included. Americana and heavy have been stylistic buds for going on 15-plus years at this point, but that’s not really the extent of what’s happening with Whole Horse Both Barrels, as both are put to use to serve the band’s overarching, individualized weirdness. As I said, I dig it.” -JJ at The Obelisk
phOG consists of current and former members of, Fire Nuns, Urchin, Dead Coyote, Taarna, and Lets Talk bringing a sonically diverse group of transplants from The Black Hills of South Dakota.
