Ty Segall: Twins:: Review
San Francisco’s incessantly prolific Ty Sewall has released his third album of the year, Twins, onto the suspecting public and by all appearances, does not appear to be slowing down in the least. It’s apparent that Segall’s stint in obscurity wasn’t going to last long because of his dogged determination, knack of finding a perfect melody and almost single-handedly reviving the garage genre.
For the uninitiated, Twins posits Segall’s sound somewhere between The Beatles and early Nirvana. This is to say there’s not too much of a deviation from Segall’s other albums. Twins does have an experimental bent which can be found in the folk intro of “The Hill” and the guitar squall of “Handglams.” While detractors might find fault with Segall’s style, there’s no doubt that a new album will be shortly on the horizon soon enough to offer something altogether different.
