Adam Ryan Kohl McCarthy Foam, better known as ARKM Foam, has been keeping shit weird in the Boston music scene for decades. As a absolute jammer, Foam is impossible to pin down, keeping an egg in every basket - from his experiments in vocal harsh noise with Frank Hurricane via Knight Howls, to the cyber free-jazz percussion mayhem with BANG! BROS., to the heady folk of Peace, Loving. The range of his output is bafflingly expansive - his most recent solo banjo record sitting fittingly side-by-side with his concrète experiments in tape manipulation. Every new project continues to peel back layers that at its core reveals a dude who simply adores sound and refuses to be pigeon-holed by any expectations in his explorations therein.

PLUMPY finds Foam exploring the depths of the Yamaha PSS 570 keyboard specifically. Recorded four years ago, straight to tape with no overdubs, over the course of a single weekend, Foam dove deep into the idiosyncrasies of the machine and its unique palette and capabilities set, yielding the earworm bounty of offbeat grooves, left-footed ditties, and enigmatic jingles collected here.
