Biography

Lo-fi musician Ty Segall first garnered public acclaim as the lead singer of Orange County, CA, garage rock revivalist band the Epsilons. With that band, he practiced a rawer, snottier take on Strokes/Vines/White Stripes-style rock, occasionally delving into more retro territory. On his solo album, Lemons, however, Segall delivered a much more traditional sound, studiously re-creating '60s ... Read more in Amazon's Ty Segall Store

Product Description

CD Description

Goodbye Bread is the fifth album from San Francisco garage rocker Ty Segall, the first since 2010 s Melted .

BBC Review

The 23-year-old multi-instrumentalist Ty Segall is emerging as one of the most prolific artists on the San Francisco scene. Or should that be promiscuous, given the number of outfits he's dallied with, the best-known being Sic Alps? Lately, Segall has settled down into being his own virtual one-man band solo act. Once this Goodbye Bread album percolates onto the scene, he shall doubtless remain in that state.

Segall sings, drums and stings guitar, and it's emphatically the latter activity that's his strongest suit. His first solo release was made available as a cassette, and there are elements within this new recording that hint at such scrunched, distorted, level-reddening primitivism. Segall enjoys alternating solo albums with a spew of 7" singles, and his songs are frequently crafted as such, sticking around the three- or four-minute mark.

Already, he's up to his seventh LP, after barely three years as a solo being. At barely 34 minutes, Goodbye Bread is an old-school artefact, brief even in ancient vinyl terms. Segall pens songs that don't possess an ounce of excess blubber, with not a second wasted throughout these 10 compressed compositions. His ultimate saviours must surely be The Beatles, but the early Syd Barrett psychedelic-ised Pink Floyd are often clanging away in the background. Segall is particularly enamoured with the solo John Lennon sound, even adopting his trademark bounce-back echo-vocal style. The opening title-track's light shimmering steadily builds, with high vocals and tumbling-Ringo drum fills. At the two-minute mark, it happens for the first time: Segall injects one of his searing guitar solo vignettes, the first of what are invariably the peak moments of each song.

These sharply-targeted psychedelic guitar eruptions are well-contained, and always tantalisingly brief. Their acidic sound recalls the work of the great Barry Melton, of Country Joe and the Fish. Segall must surely have also been seduced by the garage clutter of Roky Erickson. The vocals are layered into a ramshackle choir formation, with Segall repeatedly crafting deliberately naïve couplets. Even so, any cranky, clanky business is well-meshed. Lurking underneath all of this is a steam-powered bass amp fulsomeness, emerging from rock's misted golden years. The numbers that move closest towards an original expression arrive at the climax, with The Floor and Where Your Head Goes, this last one's needle guitars jolting from speaker-to-speaker, ear-to-ear, and even planet-to-planet.

Slower. Better. 4 July 2011
By Gregory William Locke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After years of recording mediocre music with different garage rock bands, including The Epsilons, Party Fowl and The Traditional Fools, California native Ty Segall stepped out on his own, releasing three solo records and a handful of EPs over a two year period. Up to that point, all of Segall's offerings were sloppy, poorly recorded garage pop; then, in 2010 came the far more controlled (though still lo-fi) Melted, a record that, before the end of the year, had established a devout following for Segall. The record did well enough that Drag City Records signed Segall, recently releasing his fifth studio album, Goodbye Bread, to much anticipation.

The sound here is still garage-friendly, though with each release Segall takes small steps towards accessibility, the result here being a very consistent, very cool 10-song record that should sit well with fans of current bands like The Strange Boys, The Black Lips, King Kahn and the late Jay Reatard while also offering a retro sound appealing to fans of classic artists like The Sonics, The Standells and even Paul Revere & the Raiders. Segall's ever-growing embrace of melody can be heard instantly, on opened "Goodbye Bread," a dreamy, fuzzy ballad with stoner overtones. Where Segall used to play fast and ferocious, he here seems like a slacker John Lennon fan, more interested in everyday life than revolution.

Despite having much cleaner production than Melted or anything before Melted, Goodbye Brea is still a lo-fi work that features reverb-drench vocals and sloppy 60s riffs. Segall's vocals are welcoming in a way that serves his growing interest in pop appeal. And, like it or not, Segall does have quite a bit of interest in 60s and 70s pop, not unlike a Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain-era Stephen Malkmus. Standout "My Head Explodes" is a great mix of the old and new, kicking faster, louder and clunkier than most of the rest of the album while still paying much attention to structure and melody. The hooks come big and often, dominating many of the songs with their repetition. So no, this isn't an artistic triumph as much as it is a slacker stab at commercial appeal, not unlike that second White Stripes album, De Stijl, was back in early naughts. As much as I do miss those blasts of feedback and noise, I can't help but love songs like "Where Your Head Goes" and "You Make the Sun Fry," which play by the rules in the coolest way possible while still employing those sweet stoner riffs that remind of the best 60s garage bands.

Just as de facto garage revival leader Jay Reatard was hitting it big, he passed on. I wondered, following his passing, if the emerging garage trend would tail off, as grunge did following the death of Kurt Cobain. Didn't happen. In fact, one could argue that garage rock is as big as ever right now, with artists like The Blacks Lips, Wavves, King Khan and Those Darlins all selling big and owning festival stages. With the one-two punch of Melted and Goodbye Bread, two great records, I get the feeling that Segall is edging his way towards the throne. With Bread, he's turned the noise down and cranked up the hooks, begging us to believe that, garage apathy or not, this dude is stepping up to the poster boy plate (let is not forget that Segall is from the OC and even hung with some of those famous dopes back in high school). After hearing this great new record, I can't think of a better candidate for the job, save for maybe Wavves' Nathan Williams or even Kurt Vile, who kinda/sorta fits the mold. For me, with the excellent Goodbye Bread, garage pop is all about one man right now: Ty Segall.

UPDATE: After spending months listening to this album, it's become a real beast of a disc. Maybe even my favorite record of 2011.

Ty Segall is the new king of Lo Fi. Similar to Wavves and the Pixies with a little grunge thrown in.

Ty Segall is amazing. He's an awesome guitar player, his production is so scuzzy and fantastic, and his songs are just rad.

4 1/2 Stars, Satan in space 24 Dec. 2011
By spartucusjones - Published on Amazon.com
This album is an absolute spaced out, psychedelic masterpiece. There is a quirky weirdness, but not in an alienating way. The album still has an infectious sense of melody and none of the spaciness changes the fact that the songs have a definite hook. On a number of the tracks there is also a certain sinister quality to it (such as "My Head Explodes" & "Where Your Head Goes"). In many ways it is a throwback & authentic album possessed with legit rock & roll attitude. Ty describes the album best in his own words:

"I want to do a total glam Stooges-meets-Hawkwind or Sabbath, something like that. I think that would be super fun. I want to throw people off. I want to make a really heavy record: evil, evil space rock. Put a little Satan in space and you got the sound."

This is certainly an apt description.

The album came fast and the record was in great shape and it was sealed (brand new). It was a great deal as well.
