I didn’t think San Francisco’s Ty Segall could rock much harder after his Slaughterhouse album just released a few months ago. But his third LP of the year (!), Twins, is pretty much the apex of his recording career. Each release is better than the previous one. Twins, recorded with a little more hi-finess allows the overdubbed tracks of solos to cut through, and the monolithic fuzz axes sound like a razorblade slicing through a cinder block. This record is less “garage rock”, which I personally like. It’s great to see a boy turning into a man before your very eyes. What will the insanely prolific Ty Segall do next? Better enjoy Twins while you can, because he’s probably got 10 more new songs already.
