San Francisco psych wunderkind Ty Segall continues a tireless musical
assault on ears and minds with his third album, Melted. Segall says it
sounds like "cherry cola, Sno-Cones and taffy." Indeed! Over the past
two years he's released records more often than most people do laundry,
but somehow there is still a heap of anticipation for this new album on
Goner packed full of truly psychedelic pop songs with great vocals and
On the heels of two critically acclaimed solo
albums, Segall holed up in a basement studio in late 2009 to begin
recording Melted. Friends occasionally dropped by to hang out and
help--including Mike Donovan (Sic Alps), John Dwyer (Thee Oh-Sees) and
Eric Bauer (Crack W.A.R.). The result is a carefree yet precise balance
of acoustic and electric elements. Distorted echo and thunder mix
together with enough clean guitar lines and addictive choruses to
deliver an album that recalls the '60s without sounding like anything
created during that decade. Time melts away, vision melts away, minds
melt away. Get Melted!
