Product Description

Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 from this Alt-Rock trio featuring Ty Segall (drums/vocals), Charlie Moothart (guitar/vocals) and Roland Cosio (bass). They're heavy rock lifers - three California-bred dudes who have been refining their riffs and getting weird together since high school (which wasn't that long ago, actually). Fuzz was formed a couple years ago as a collaboration between Segall and Moothart, but only recently did the pair have sufficient time to guide the band out of side-project limbo and into a recording studio. The mood is not light. The songs project a state of perpetual paranoia and eroding mental health. And as it should be, you know? It's a record for the burners.

After only minutes away from the public eye, garage whirlwind Ty Segall is back and - guess what - this time he's got a new band. California three-piece Fuzz are schoolyard friends, reprising the forgotten Epsilons line-up of the early 00s. As Fuzz, the main man himself is on drums and vocals, the latter of which he shares with Ty Segall Band guitarist Charlie Moothart - equally of superlative garage-surf outfit The Moonhearts, so too Roland Cosio here picked for bass duty.

And the trio attack the eight, riff-heavy tunes that comprise this self-titled LP (which doesn't include the blistering first single "This Time I Got A Reason") with typically sloppy, sludgy abandon. They've even got producer Chris Woodhouse on board - he who does Thee Oh Sees usually. If you're now thinking "obvious win", you'd be correct though the dark opener does lull you into that clichéd false sense of security as it stares down the crossroads between rhythmic meditation and psyche-noise before then exploding into serrated, drawn-out proto-metal - a pattern that "Loose Sutures" later runs with, getting solo crazy and generally crushing it with fuzz pedal abuse.

You don't, of course, need hours of studio sheen and overdub trickery when you've got a groove nicked straight from Satan, such as that which growls out of "What's In My Head". Cleaning up for a similar sound, "Sleigh Ride" too is great fun, gunning for Sabbath chug by way of power-blues bludgeoning. Arguably, it's far from complex to smash out ramshackle shred and gnarly jam-rock, the sort of thing presumably littered Hendrix's brain, but just as it worked then so too does it work now, despite Segall continuing to make it all look so effortless.

Advised downloads: "Loose Sutres" and "What's In My Head".

Big problem the reviews here are for the wrong cd. This cd is a female soul trio from 1971 not a Ty segal spin of

It appears you just can't stop Ty Segall!

Not content perhaps with the more mellow track taken by his latest solo release he appears to have found an outlet for his more fuzzy side with the aptly named Fuzz.

This collection of tunes is fantastic. Musically it reminds me of early Mudhoney with a generous dollop of Sabbath psyche. Add the good old helium vocals into the mix and you've got an explosive cocktail of Segall based magic.

If you're a fan of Ty Segall but weren't fully satified with Sleeper and wanted something more rockin' buy this record or at the very least download 'Whats in my head'.

Amazing fuzzed out bliss!

I read the review in Uncut and was sufficiently impressed to buy the album without listening to it first. However, the reviews (Uncut and Amazon) seem to be obsessed that its another Ty Segall, whereas I was drawn more to the doom metal angle.

If you love Ty Segall, then no doubt you will absolutely adore the album. If you are looking for the monumental doom metal album, then its good but tails of from about three quarters of the way. I actually would give it 7 out of 10 but definitely more than 3 stars.

Its still a lot better than a lot of the tosh that's been released in the last few months.

O.K. Let's look at the cover - a docile looking demon clutching a crystal ball, all face-melt hyper colours bleeding into the legend 'FUZZ'. In space. We're not talking Coldplay now.
Ty Segall and pals play it hard, fast and low end; the afterglow of late 60's/early 70's hard blues rock. Yes, there are strong whiffs of Sabbath and Blue Cheer, but also the odd hint of Zeppelin and the more psychedelic licks of Hendrix.

As with everything Segall blesses, there is enough magic weaved to stop you from just going back to the source material. A highlight for me - the Nirvana-worship of 'What's In My Head?' descending into cavernous echo then leading straight into the brutal, bludgeoning riffs of 'HazeMaze' - you can almost see the snarl on Ty's face as he sings/sneers with Ozzy-like menace. And who knew Segall was so awesome with a pair of sticks? Is there nothing he sucks at?!

The one improvement I would recommend is a little lightness in the mix to emphasize the heaviosity - their own 'Planet Caravan' if you will. All in all though, this is an excellent selection of 100% committed badass blues rock ramalama - melodic but heavy and never aimlessly meandering like a lot of nostalgic stoner rock. Highly recommended.
