One of the many things the great Ty Segall is known for is that fact that he’s almost impossibly prolific. He’s dabbled in nearly every style of rock and roll known to man, from dusky folk to blasting, blown-out, blues-derived garage. Six years ago, still relatively early in his career, he put out a split LP with the British band Black Time, which has since fallen out of print. Well, say goodbye to forking over those hefty Discogs prices — the excellent Canadian label Telephone Explosion is bringing the LP back, providing the perfect opportunity to hear a younger Ty at his ragged, glorious best. You can get a taste of what you’re in for with “No No,” with its blown-out drums, distorted-to-perfection vocals and jittery, wiry melody that twitches and jitters and jumps.
You can pre-Order the Ty Segall/Black Time split here — but do it quickly. Pre-orders close January 31.
