Artist Info

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Named after a popular brand of synthetic home-siding, Detroit lo-fi garage rockers Tyvek started gaining recognition in 2008 alongside fellow noise poppers Vivian Girls, Times New Viking, and Eat Skull. The group was founded by songwriter/vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Kevin Boyer, who has been the only constant member of the group. After recording a multitude of singles and 7"s for the labels X, What's Your Rupture?, M'Lady's Records, S-S, and Sub Pop, the band took a year to record its first full-length, which was scheduled for release on Siltbreeze in the spring of 2009. The album's release date was postponed for undisclosed reasons and the band underwent a name change (likely pressured by the threat of copyright infringement from Dupont), switching to TVK, Tijvek, and Tvyek before ultimately sticking with Tyvek. The band ramped up in 2010, releasing the demo LP Skyin, and its first album for In the Red, Nothing Fits. An album recorded at Third Man Records in Nashville was released in early 2011 as part of the label's Third Man Live series. In 2012 the band followed up with another monument to lo-fi, On Triple Beams. Following several limited cassettes on Boyer's Doubles Tapes label, Tyvek returned to In the Red in 2016 with the full-length Origin of What.
