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

Format: Audio CD
This is Ty's best LP. It is not as scratchy and shouty as his early recordings (which were enjoyable also, but much in the flavour of his main influences, John Dwyer and Billy Childish), and it is not as laid-back as 2011's Goodbye Bread which, despite the great sleeve picture, was down-beat, and disappointing. In the last 5 years he has been playing with a lot of different musicians, writing a lot of songs and recording a lot of albums and Twins is probably the result of his grown confidence and experience. It is pop-garage party songs with streak of wildness - it sounds something like Beatles melodies over explosive drums and Mudhoney-esque riffs.

Twins, like his other two 2012 records, shows that he is in a whole different world to the broadsheet covered serious indie-rock scene - there is no one making more viscerally exciting records that I know of. I've seen him playing live a couple of times in the last year or so and with his combination of accessibly pretty and dirty rock and roll he seems to be moving more and more towards the dynamics of grunge, which is a strange direction and on paper lots of people might not approve, but he's at the exciting, exuberant and elating end of the spectrum, rather than the bloated, hoary, self-obsessed end. It's not really an album for thinking too much about though - it's a record for dancing and partying.

Excellent CD by the new King of the Garage; some great pop tunes in here, but tons of fuzz, great solos and dissonance...quite a glam-pop feel to some tracks...standout track "You're the Doctor" is like Charlie Feathers playing fuzzed out surf-punk: perfect!

A perfect starting point for new fans.
