Ty Segall has made whole records that wrestle with realities – fighting against some, pulling mightily to bring others into being. His new self-titled record – the next record after Emotional Mugger, Manipulator, Sleeper, Twins, Goodbye Bread, Melted, Lemons and the first self-titled album that started it up in the now-distant year of 2008 – is a clean flow, a wash of transparency falling into a world that needs to see a few things through clearly, to their logical end. It’s got some of the most lobe-blasting neckwork since the Ty Segall Band’s Slaughterhouse (from way back in the long, hot summer of 2012), but it also features a steep flight of fluent acoustic settings.
Ty Segall keeps you guessing, bracing your skin with a welcome astringency, seeking to stem the bleeding with chunks and splashes of guitar, tight beats, audio-verite toilet smashes, a Wurlitzer electric piano in a jam, blazing harmonies, and LOTS of songs to sing. There’s no concept beyond that; finding the right places to be is a momentary thing. Ty Segall is the sum of his songs – and about getting the free. The free to be!
“Segall…sounds like The White Stripes collaborating with Hawkwind on a new thrash-blues song cycle for the climax of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, this is a punchy half-hour summary of Segall’s stylings so far, with a ‘White Album’ buzz to it.” – Mark Beaumont, NME
“Bulldozing opener ‘Break a Guitar’ forges a holy communion between Big Star melody and Black Sabbath brawn, and its cocksure attitude spills over to the stripped-down follow-up, ‘Freedom,’ a scrappy, acoustic-powered number that recalls John Lennon’s frantic Abbey Road curio ‘Polythene Pam.'” – Stuart Berman, Pitchfork
Olympia’s UK Gold is the trio of Matt Murillo (The Maxines), Forrest Peaker (Wisdom Teeth) and Vadi Erdal (Pitted Youth). Their debut single is a limited, four-song release recorded in two sessions at High Command with Captain Tripps Ballsington and Dub Narcotic Studio with Calvin Johnson. Listen after midnight.
