Ty Segall Lemons
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
- Label: Goner
- XLR8R Rating: 8/10
There's not much to "get" about Ty Segall, but that doesn't mean the young San Francisco troubadour isn't a whole lot of fun. Lemons is his second album, and it's stuffed with the same brand of noisy garage stomp that previously garnered favorable comparisons to artists like Jay Reatard and fellow S.F. weirdo-savant John Dwyer. Those parallels still hold up, yet Lemons is no simple retread, as Segall deftly mixes in elements of soul ("It #1") and psych ("Lovely One," "Rusted Dust") beneath all the distortion. He's also channeling a bit of Kurt Cobain, from the ear-splitting freak-out on "Johnny" to the grunge-pop of "Die Tonight," which could be one of the sweetest death threats ever caught on tape.
