It’s a glasses-off moment. As Pitchfork points out, Ty Segall has shared “Mr. Face,” the title track from a new double-vinyl EP that works as a playable pair of 3D glasses (for some history, see How Ty Segall’s New Vinyl EP Went 3D). You’ll have to do with your own red and blue lenses for the EP’s cover art, but the song itself is, in Segall terms, as clear as 20/20 vision. “When the sky shines it’ll be all right,” he beams over shaggy, Kinks-like psych-pop that’s toward the gentler end of the guitar-fuzz hero’s prolific discography. Another, slightly more recent comparison might be sadly on-hiatus Chicago band the M’s, a title from whose 2004 self-titled album seems appropriate: “Eyes on the Prize.” Pre-orders of the Mr. Face EP started shipping this week via Famous Class Records.
