Ty Segall & Mikal Cronin - Reverse Shark Attack

Ty Segall had a prolific 2009, releasing Lemons, his second full length LP, Horn The Unicorn, a collection of older demos and cassette-only tracks, and several singles on various labels. But the San Francisco native and garage psych wunderkind fired out one more release before the end of the year and it’s a doozy!

A collaboration with long time chum Mikel Cronin of Charlie and the Moonhearts, Reverse Shark Attack sounds more like Segall’s debut LP on Castleface Records, barebones, loud and relentlessly distorted. The 8 track LP also leans more to the psychedelic side, including a cover of Floyd’s Take Up Thy Stethoscope And Walk. Audacious indeed.

Is it possible to have too much Ty Segall? Not as long as he is making music like this. If you are looking for more, tinygrooves has a nice post on some of Segall’s older stuff you may also want to check out.
