For the past 4 years, Ty Segall has been doing what many artists with more time under their belts couldn’t: put out just about a thousand songs; each one being excellent.
Though he emerged to many with his 2011 record, “Goodbye Bread”, Segall’s been kicking around and kicking out jams since 2007. His signature lo-fi garage rock sensibility, Ty Segall’s Singles record perfectly showcases his best works over the years, despite leaving out songs from Ty Rex, his cover record of T. Rex songs. For those that are into Thee Oh Sees, Jacuzzi Boys, and Black Lips, Ty Segall is a must have to complete any decent garage discography.
Having always received great reviews from Pitchfork and other indie resources, his recent team-up with friend and musical cohort Mikal Cronin, has only solidified his sound, creating this odd super-duo of awesome (not to mention quite attractive) musicians.
On a scale of one to angst, I give Singles a solid 8, because it’s what Segall does best: he takes something simple and makes you dance/rage to it. What more could one ask for?
Recommended tracks: “It, “Son of Sam”, “Happy Creeps”, “Fuzzy Cat”
