Ty Segall & Freedom Band
Ty Segall has been playing music and producing records since 2005, producing over a dozen albums under his own name and multiple other headings, including Epsilons, The Traditional Fools, Fuzz, GØGGS and The CIA. His music has been heard in movies and he has composed several television theme songs as well as playing on most of the late night shows currently on the air. His most recent album, Deforming Lobes, was recorded on the Freedom's Goblin tour of North America, in support of one his most popular collections yet - all of his last four solo album have landed in the Billboard Top 200. Ty's also played tons of shows and festivals around the world, toured most of the continents and is down to do some more.
Throwing sparks like two gigantic rocks grinding against each other, Los Angeles' LAMPS seem intent on doing things their way. And on every count, we're extremely pleased they do.
Fronted by the unimpeachable Monty Buckles, the Lamps' music alternately careens, crashes, throbs and urges.
This is mongoloid frenzy music. Are they paranoid, frustrated, or merely disgusted with humanity? The truth is usually somewhere in the middle. It beats me, but when a band has a dash of Necessary Evils, a dollop of Karate Party, and a fairly heaping mound of their own chemical blend, I'm always available (as we all should be).
The trio's debut LP had primitive, cavernous aggression pounding our asses into submission, while their soon to be released follow-up shows a very nice progression.
Phase two of the Lamps' recorded journey is marked by more adventurous and expanded sonic approaches, while retaining the thuggish essence that satisfies the planet of the apes. --Min Yee (A-Frame)
