As if putting out three great albums in one year wasn’t enough, Ty Segall has formed another new band. The ambitious performer is joined by Ty Segall Band guitarist Charlie Moothart in the appropriately titled Fuzz.
The group’s debut 7″, “This Time I Got a Reason” b/w “Fuzz’s Fourth Dream” on Trouble in Mind Records, is already sold out, but you can stream both cuts below.
Ty Segall’s collaboration with White Fence, titled Hair, just came out. But he’s got two more albums coming out this year — a solo LP and one with his touring band.
Ty Segall Band features his regular collaborators Mikal Cronin, Charlie Moothart and Emily Rose Epstein. Their debut album, Slaughterhouse, is coming out this summer.
The album’s first single, “Wave Goodbye,” shows that Slaughterhouse isn’t just a regular Ty Segall album. The band take a much sludgier approach to lo-fi rock than Segall’s solo work. It keeps a steady tempo for most of the song, until ramping up at the end for a killer solo. It’s much heavier, but none of the Stooges-style garage-punk gets lost in the distortion.
Slaughterhouse is out June 26 on In the Red Records.
