Editorial Reviews

2012 release. Singer/songwriter Ty Segall meets White Fence on the golden road to unlimited devotion! Known for Rock 'n' Roll, both savage and incisive and pastorally acid-winged, Ty Segall & White Fence have collaborated on a set of songs that accelerate wildly from where we last found them. "Hair" squares their guitar-fringed traffic with purple flashes, escalating every song before multiple explosions rock the frame during their penultimate joust, with Sean Presley and Mikal Cronin along for the frantic carpet ride.

I love Ty Segall, so maybe I'm a little biased. I would strongly encourage everyone to go see a Ty Segall show in person. He puts on an amazing show. His guitar super powers don't come through on his albums with the force that they do in his live shows. Okay, with all that being said, let me get to the album. This album is a team up with Ty and Timothy Presley (who is a member of the great band Strange Boys) under the name White Fence. This album is a fairly subdued album (at least in Ty Segall terms). It is more in the vain of the garage bubble gum pop of Goodbye Bread, as opposed to the hard garage rocking of Melted, Lemons, or his self-titled album (this would be splitting hairs though to a lot of people). It is not quite as strong as Goodbye Bread. Some of the songs are a little more forgettable (usually the Presley penned tracks). For me, this hasn't happened on a Ty Segall album yet. I've loved every track Segall has ever laid down, except on this album. I find myself a little bored with a few of the tracks, but it isn't too long before you're rescued by a fuzzed out face melting guitar riff or solo. It's an album that feels out of sorts for both artist. I mean neither artist would cut this album on their own. That may be where my complaint comes in. I find Segall's work mind blowing, but this album feels a little outside his normal realm (not a bad thing though). The bottom line is that if you like Ty Segall, you'll want to buy the album. If this is your introduction to Ty Segall, start with another one of his albums (it doesn't matter which one). One last note, I had the privilege to briefly meet Ty Segall once at a concert. We didn't hang out, and we're not best buddies or anything. In fact, he probably doesn't even remember meeting me. Thus, I'm not trying to brag.Read more ›

Whereas much of both Ty Segall's and White Fence's (Timothy Presley from Darker My Love) previous output were modern updates of mid-60's sounding garage-psych ala the Nuggets compilation, this collaborative effort reminds me more of White Album-era Beatles, with some Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd freakouts thrown in for good measure. And yet it sounds amazingly fresh, especially compared to some of their contemporaries who are content with just aping the classic 60s psych "sound."

'Hair' is a little more relaxed than either artists previous output, and quite a bit more "jammy" and stretched-out than the quick "get in, get out" mentality they're known for. For me, this is good "anytime" music, as it's very easy listening, while still being tripped-out, as opposed to past albums by these artists that are more dependent on my mood at the time. And I disagree with part of A. Woodley's otherwise great review, which stated that this would not be a good starting point when delving into Ty Segall's catalog. I found this much more accessible upon first listen, although I love most of his previous work as well. But when I play this one for my friends (who are more casual listeners of music), they are much more into it, asking questions, etc, while with Ty's previous stuff, they were more apt to tell me to turn it down so we can talk. While that doesn't mean this is "better," I think it does mean that it's more accessible to the average music fan.

Overall, I think 'Hair' stands up to the best of either artists' output, and is probably my favorite thing either of them has done, but I tend to lean more toward mellow, noodling psych rather than the more aggressive, punkier psych of Ty Segall's previous work (although there's still a place for that, too).

I'm a fan of both these guys, so picking up this collab was a no brainer. Drifting between a hazy vintage 60s psychedelic sound and thrashing garage punk, this album delivers on all fronts and highlights what each of these guys do so well. The guitar playing is great by both, and repeat listens will reward you.

A previous reviewer said this is out of the realm of what either artist would record on their own, but I disagree. He lumped Presley in with Strange Boys, when that's the band he's probably been least involved in. He (now) has 6 studio albums under his belt as White Fence, and all sound like his work on this record. And if you think White Fence sounds too soft on those albums, try the Live in San Francisco record. He throws kerosene all over his studio work and burns through an incendiary set. Check it out, it stomps.

I would have perhaps agreed about Ty Segall back in 2012, but since then he has recorded several albums and EPs that foray closer to this territory, namely Sleeper, parts of Manipulator and Mr Face. He's always trying new things so I think just about anything is in his wheelhouse at this point. Manipulator is a great album, and a potential first step in escaping from the trappings of monotonous garage rock into a more refined future.

Point is, I think both these guys are doing some really interesting things in rock right now, so they can feel free to collaborate again anytime.

A really good album that flows really well. Maybe one of the eight songs is a little overboard, but all in all lots of fun to listen to.
