about

Junkyard alchemists Pulgas plumb the depths for elusive alkalis. A two-person brain trust from Philadelphia, Pulgas veer gleefully into the muck of things, discount headlamps shining brightly into one another's eyes.

More Like Us EP, Pulgas' first release on Astro Nautico, shows Simon Martinez and Zane Shields exploring deconstructed decay. Where previous releases highlighted the duo's musicianship and polyglot aural vocabulary, exploding in unfettered and difficult to reproduce "studio mania" (Pulgas' words), the new songs of More Like Us stoke a spark lit by human hands.

The result is more mundane, of Earth, though like all good chemistry, Pulgas' music remains difficult to categorize. Blurts of digital chaos perforate stark choral cloud beds. Dirtboy soul pockets crash indiscriminately into demon mudbug orgies. Ghosts of shredders past wink suggestively at a drummer with no elbows, hair flapping in the wind. Pulgas are steeped in many waters, making teas with tastes all their own.

More Like Us EP is available now everywhere digital music is sold. A sister EP is due this spring.

Pulgas Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Pulgas is undeniable garbage wizardry. Two young beavises making heady jams in self inflicted fogs of varied degrees.

Track Name: That's A Big Stain
For once in my life that's enough
That thing you gave me oh no
Got passed that place
The place of resentment and pain

For once it was fine
You could
You could be mine

No more hiding now
It's all in front
Without us
Without the pain
Track Name: World Gym
My lantern beam
If she sees another light
It'll be the end

Fall in blind
Black guillotine ends the day
One sand foot

Reaching an impasse
One sand foot bending over the curve
Fall in blind

These hands
These hands are flapping
And waving in front

The world gym
Track Name: Rub
Sometimes
I'd wish you'd rub me the right way
Instead of doing all that usual shit

It's about to change son
Hope
Hopefully

Got to go I've gotta throw up don't you know

Play it all back from where ae began
All of the sinning
And pissing in circles
Oooooooooo yeah
I thought you were a person of god
Yabada ehhhhhh sooooooooo
I thought this was personal God

It's all bout to change soon
Hope
Hopefully

Got to go
I've gotta throw out all my old stuff
Fuckfucjfcufjcufjckdfj

Play that bongo
Track Name: Precious Patch
It's a blade of glass
Your hair is cutting me

A cryptic stench coats the air
Something moving
Something moving across the ceiling

Latch onto it
It really does save
Lives

A cryptic stench coats the air
Something moving
Something moving across the ceiling

Nearly 2 feet away from your snatch
Woah that's close

A cryptic stench coats the air
Something moving
Something moving across the ceiling

It's the precious patch
Order of the highest honor
It's the precious patch
Undeniable
It's the precious patch
Show me the way
It's an odor not like much else

It's a blade of grass
It's really cutting me
Blade of glass
It's really gutting me
Hahahahahahhahhah

It's the precious patch
Order of the highest honor
It's the precious patch
Undeniable
It's the precious patch
Show me the way
It's an odor not like much else
