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 exciting arrangements.
On the heels of two critically acclaimed solo albums, Segall holed up in a basement studio with Mike Donovan of the Sic Alps in late 2009 and early 2010 to come up with Melted. It’s 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!
Memphis newbs Ex-Cult are on a building a national underground buzz and for good reason. Night after night they are pumping out high energy post indie/punk jams that should have fans of Fugazi and Off! in a frenzy.
“Acorn Bcorn, the sister duo—Marina and Leann Cornelius—formed from the ashes of The Beta Sweat. The siblings trade off on guitar, bass and drums, with Marina handling the vocals, and the duo specializes in a brand of riot grrrl-inspired, skeletal punky blues. Part of the fun of seeing Acorn Bcorn is seeing the division of labor between the two—for example, Marina might play guitar, sing and keep a drumbeat simultaneously, while Leeann plays the bass and takes over percussion when Marina is too busy to do so.” – Tucson Weekly
