Ty Segall’s Goodbye Bread

Ty Segall has followed his friends in Sic Alps over to Drag City for his new album Goodbye Bread, in which he continues his drift away from manic Elvis-y frenzies (see: “Pretty Baby, You’re So Ugly”) towards a late Beatles-esque psychedelic vibe. The giveaway track, “You Can Make the Sun Fry,” is a genuine pleasure, indolently trippy and expansively, radiantly pop. The rest of the album is pretty great, too. You’ve got to love a guy who’s willing to make a song out of his girlfriend’s desire for a nice couch in her living room…and also, he may have put his dog on the cover. Looking forward to diving deeper on this one.
