Ty Segall Band-Tell Me What’s Inside Your Heart

This is from Slaughterhouse (2012, In The Red), the only album by Ty Segall Band not to be confused with Ty Segall himself and the many recordings under his own name. However you want to slice it Mr. Segall and his contemporaries (including but not exclusive to The Oh Sees, White Fence, and  Mikal Cronin) have been cranking out some of the best music I’ve heard in years. Slaughterhouse has parts that sound like a garage punk Hawkwind. This song is just perfect noisy garage pop

Not That You Asked (best of 2012)

By law everyone who works in a record store has to post a year end “best of” list. If one has a blog AND works in a record store failure to comply results in stiff penalties including death or mainstream acceptance of your favorite bands (look it up, it’s true). So as a law abiding citizen here it is: (…drum roll…)
1) Tyvek-On Triple Beams (In The Red)
Third Great album from these guys, like an American version of the Swell Maps. If that means nothing to you hopefully this clip will load and you can check them out and then maybe check out the Swell Maps, but buy the Tyvek records first.

2)Ty Segall/White Fence-Hair (Drag City)
Ty Segall put out three different records this year. They’re all real good, I’m just listening to this one as I’m making the list. It’s a collaboration with White Fence aka Tim Presley, whose albums Family Perfume Vol 1 & 2 should be heard as well

3)Kadavar-Kadavar (Tee-Pee) German Sabbath heads who look like they were flash frozen in 1972. Really heavy but not leaden and the last song sounds like Sabbath doing Hawkwind (which I couldn’t find a clip of)

Here’s the rest of the list, I probably forgot some.(NOT IN ANY ORDER)

Cheap Time-Wallpaper Music (In The Red)

Goat-World Music (Rocket)

Moon Duo-Circles (Sacred Bones)

Dr. John-Locked Down (Nonesuch)

Unnatural Helpers-Land Grab (Hardly Art)

Ty Segall-Twins (Drag City)

Ty Segall Band-Slaughterhouse (In The Red)

Mark Lanegan Band-Blues Funeral (4AD)

Flatlanders-Odessa Tapes (New West)

Carlton Melton-Photos of Photos (Agitated)

Listen

Ty Segall-Melted (Goner Records)

The new Ty Segall record Melted is great and you should check it out. It’s garage pop with a nice shot of psych through it. Here are a couple of songs from it.  Yes, that’s a flute on “caesar” but it works.
