So, look what happens…I post a random video on my blog and all the sudden I’m reviewing the record, the self-titled Ty Segall record. This has also become my dancing around in the kitchen record at the moment and super, super, super fun.
Here’s what I said:
“Ty Segall is a one-man band. Not in the one-person, multi-tracked recording artist sense, but the old fashioned way. A drummer first, he sits behind an abbreviated kit, one foot on the kick drum pedal, the other pumping on a high hat with a tambourine attached. He can’t get too close to the pedals, however, because he’s got a guitar between his body and the drums, and he’s playing that, too. In fact, when he’s not using his strumming hand to slash out the rockabilly chords, he’ll sometimes reach over and slap the tambourine with his hand. He doesn’t seem to have a pair of drum sticks. Oh, and there’s a microphone dangling in front of him – probably not in the best of condition – to put the reverb’d echo onto his yelps, croons, howls and hiccups. “ More
There are some mp3s up at the record label here, including Ty’s “It” and a song by his other band, The Traditional Fools.
