TY SEGALL truly stopped for nothing this year. Three full-length albums, a handful of 7″ singles (one repressed), two appearances (that’s plural) on live national television, a slew of tour dates across the world and whatever the fuck else you can think of. In the end, there’s nobody else that can say they added that much to their profile this year.
Twins would be his third LP on the year and his second (solo) album for the Drag City label. As far as the record goes, it pretty much ensures that 2012 was the year of Segall. A track like “You’re the Doctor” seems like the essence of everything the man has done up to this point – it’s absolutely catastrophic, supplying us with two minutes of full-on, pedal to the metal intensity. The song is led by the constant pummel of pounding percussion, making way for some vile guitar licks against the increasingly noisy backdrop. Throbbing bass lines and Segall’s bloodthirsty squeals help fortify the wild song, catapulting us headfirst into a raging onslaught of dirty, screeching guitars and enough driving energy to last into next year. Go on, hit that play button right below, you know you want to.
