Ty Segall Band - Slaughterhouse
By Alan RantaTy Segall gets around. Since 2005, he's played drums and guitar for Epsilons, Party Fowl, the Traditional Fools, the Perverts and Sic Alps, collaborated with White Fence and Mikal Cronin, and released half-a-dozen solo albums while constantly touring. Indeed, Segall's barrage of fuzz and thrashy exuberance is road-tested and true. Slaughterhouse sees Segal take his touring band of Cronin, Charlie Moothart and Emily Rose Epstein into the studio, and the results surge with the crackling, raw power of their notorious live performances. The album's mixture of psychedelic, punk, glam, blues, noise and space rock may evoke nostalgia for the likes of the Stooges, New York Dolls and MC5, but the sound seethes with such contemporary urgency you'd swear Segall was right next to you, spitting in your ear. With the ferocity and immediacy of this album, topped by timeless lyrics, one can easily visualize Slaughterhouse clawing its way into the history books next to anything by the aforementioned greats, easily surpassing minor stars like the Creation and the Troggs with its consistency. When you hear it, you know this is for real.
