Amoeba Review

01/25/2017

While some of the louder aesthetics and guitar flourishes may remind you of the '60s psychedelia of Syd Barrett or the '90s fuzz of Kurt Cobain, the heart of the Ty Segall's new self-titled album is '70s rock. These garnishes of chaos and fuzz are largely laid on a foundation made of the glam-groovin' of bands like T-Rex or the folk rock of artists like Neil Young. Take "Thank You Mr. K" for example. Though driven by heavy riffage and rhythmic chugging, the main motif sounds like early Muswell Hillbillies-era Kinks at an amphetamine circus. "Talkin'," one of the few laid-back reprieves from the souped-up album, sounds like Marc Bolan fronting Crazy Horse down at the local saloon, while album opener, "Break A Guitar," is a straight up, desert rock machine with tinges of Sabbath and Bowie. There are, of course, exceptions to this notion. It's hard to place the 10 minute "Warm Hands (Freedom Returned)," whose course ventures through multiple segments of tonal changes, starting with what sort of sounds like a cross between Of Montreal and Queens of the Stone Age, and ending with a come-down, jazz jam akin to the ending of The Rolling Stones' "Can't You Hear Me Knocking," only with more caffeine and less heroin, or maybe perhaps like Miles Davis' Bitches Brew played at 45rpm.
