Ty Segall – Spiders 7″

TY SEGALL comes back quickly after the release of “Goodbye Bread” earlier this year, spitting out another 7″ that doesn’t exactly follow in the same path of where he left off.

By now we should know that Mr. Segall is a man of many tricks, which is fueled by his obvious passion and proven by his endlessly prolific releases. While the music on this new “Spiders” 7″ may not be his most quality work, it still goes a long way to show the Segall we’ve grown to love is a dude who has no creative limits. Like a child in a candy shop, Segall continues to experiment with sounds and ideas and that is shown excellently in this single – however it just may leave you cringing in the process thanks to its crude approach.

“Spiders” certainly does not wield the most pleasing sounds with its metallic, trash-can quality production and unfortunately after listening that becomes too obvious. The first two tracks are plagued by a grinding complexion that will leave you wincing in horror, while the B-side features a cover of the bluesy “Cherry Red” from the Groundhogs 1971 album “Split,” which is without a doubt the most memorable song included on the single. Listen to these two cuts below right now and see what you think.

  1. Nice one, picked this up this weekend and loved that he’s willing to go back to these raw, dirty sounds on the early singles. He’s got to get it out! No time for mics or recording!
