Amoeba Review

Scott Carlson, Hollywood 01/27/2014

Though Ty Segall has an unendingly massive output of material and is showing no signs of slowing down, Sleeper comes as something of a surprise as it features stripped down, acoustic-based songs throughout, bringing to the forefront elements of his songwriting that can potentially be lost though the blown-out rock style featured on most of his works. Though one can point to various elements of his songwriting on Sleeper that can feel as if they're on the same wavelength as Neil Young, David Bowie and various others, the fact of the matter is that once again Ty Segall has shown us yet another aspect of his musical versatility, and Sleeper ranks up there with any of his previous releases.


08/19/2013

Ty Segall sings passionate lullabies on his latest album, a broad departure from his heavy, fuzz-driven previous work as leader of Ty Segall Band, Fuzz and his own solo work. Taking a page out of the Syd Barrett handbook, Segall shows off his sensitive side here with sweet acoustic jams, but Sleeper ain't too sleepy, given the blood, sweat 'n' tears Segall pours into these songs. If you were afraid going acoustic would soften Segall, fear not: Sleeper is the work of the madman behind so many great releases over the past few years, only this time, he's put the focus squarely on his songwriting. That focus shows a writer with a keen sense of melody and storytelling — "let the keepers keep the time, let the sleepers dream so fine" he sings in a quiver on the lovely "The Keepers." Here's hoping Ty Segall keeps dreaming for a long time.
