I was hoping that Lemons would solve my Ty Segall problem, i.e. that his wonderfully raucous S-T came too late last year to wedge its way onto my 2008 list. (Indeed, I didn’t discover it until well into 2009, so much for the bleeding edge, eh?) A new record could stand in for the old one, fair is fair, everything evens out, except in this case, it doesn’t. I ended up liking Lemons a good bit less than Ty Segall and it’s hard to see how it will make its way into top 20 for 2009. Top 30 maybe, but no one cares about that. (As if not caring were any excuse…we’d all sit around doing nothing all day if we did only things that people care about.)
Okay, but I gave it a six and liked it maybe 6.5 worth and the review’s up at Blurt. You can read it right now if you want.
Or check out this track at Spinner, “It #1” (the boy loves his its.)
