Biography

Lo-fi musician Ty Segall first garnered public acclaim as the lead singer of Orange County, CA, garage rock revivalist band the Epsilons. With that band, he practiced a rawer, snottier take on Strokes/Vines/White Stripes-style rock, occasionally delving into more retro territory. On his solo album, Lemons, however, Segall delivered a much more traditional sound, studiously re-creating '60s ... Read more in Amazon's Ty Segall Store

Editorial Reviews

2012 release, the debut from the acclaimed singer/songwriter and his new band. The Ty Segall Band is Ty Segall (obviously), Mikal Cronin, Charlie Moonheart and Emily Rose Epstein. While Segall has released many incredible solo releases, Slaughterhouse marks the first that he recorded with his touring band. For this mini-album, the band recorded with Chris Woodhouse at the Hangar, turned their amps all the way up, set their fuzz pedals on obliterate and commenced to kick ass and take names. Seriously, this record will melt your face. All of Segall's usual psych-pop sensibilities are present but Slaughterhouse adds the full-throttle, go-for-the-throat bombast that the band delivers in the live setting. The fuzz riffs, bratty howl and Cro-Magnon bashing culminate with a feedback freakout that's clearly the only sensible way to end a workout of this magnitude.

If you've ever seen Ty Segall live, you know that he and his band sometimes straddle the line between ferocious psych/punk and straight-up metal. On 'Slaughterhouse,' his first album with his touring mates, that intense live energy is captured almost perfectly, at least for 29 of it's 39 minutes.

Upon hearing the first track, "Death," my initial thought was, "Wow, someone's been listening to Hawkwind recently!" In fact, the album as a whole has that late 60's, early 70's proto-metal vibe of bands like Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, and especially the heavy prog stylings of the aforementioned Hawkwind; only with the take-no-prisoners bombast of early punk progenitors The Stooges and MC5, and the DIY psychedelia of U.S. garage bands circa 1966 thrown in the mix. The result is an album that will make you want to headbang while at the same time make you want to spark one up and drift away to state of zoned-out bliss. "Wave Goodbye" is a perfect example of this, with sludgy, skull-crushing guitars, a hypnotic repeating bass riff, and drums that sound like they're being pummeled into splinters. This doesn't sound like a recipe for "zoned-out bliss," but trust me, it is.

The sound quality, as usual when it comes to Ty Segall, is extremely lo-fi, but that doesn't make it any less heavy or tripped-out. Instead, it makes the album feel more raw and visceral, which in turn makes it more powerful. The only negative for me is that the last song, the 10-plus minute "Fuzz War," really seems like it was just tacked on to make this a full-length LP as opposed to an EP. I was hoping for an epic mindblower, and instead all I got was distortion and feedback. All "Fuzz" and no "War.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mindblowing July 9, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't always add reviews when there are already a few that express my opinion, but I can't help but dog pile onto this one. This album is awesome. If you like garage rock of any kind, than this will quickly be your favorite album. I've seen this incarnation of Ty Segall's band, and in concert and on the album, the band is loud, driving, and tight. Segall's guitar playing is superb and as with all Segall releases, the songwriting is great. With a guy that churns out albums this fast, you would think the material would start to suffer, but somehow Segall's albums just keep getting better and better. Allmusic compares Segall to a young Jack White. It's not too far fetched. The guy is a monster on the guitar. The music is a lot more fuzzed out than anything White has released, but it rocks. If you're looking for comparisons, Segall is on In the Red's record label, and he sounds similar to some label mates like The Dirtbombs or King Khan and the BBQ Show. The vinyl comes on two 10 inch LPs with a download card. If you like Ty Segall or just good rock and roll, this album is for you. I agree with the other reviewers, this album is a strong candidate for album of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fuzz war for the masses. January 7, 2013
By G. Rao
Format:Audio CD
The first time I encountered Ty Segall, he was opening for Jeremy Jay in a small rock club called The Knockout, and playing as a one man band. His music was simplistic but catchy, and really fuzzed out.

Four years later, he has evolved into a garage rock savant, and now tours with a full time band in addition to a breakneck pace of studio releases.

This album finds him trying to recreate his live band's aggressive sound, but with studio detail.

If I've noticed a theme in his lyrics, it would have to be failing/mutilated body parts. On a previous album, he sang about cutting off the tip of his finger. Here, he sings about his eyes failing him, and losing his head.

It sounds like there are a lot of two part vocal harmonies going on here, and they really help sweeten what would otherwise be a fairly harsh sound.

I agree with the reviewer who mentioned Hawkwind as a template for this album. It has that mix of primitive and cerebral that they patented. I could see this album appealing to punk rockers, psych fans, stoner-rock fans, and pop rock fans as well.

It would be greatly encouraging to me to see a new generation of garage rockers and fans rally around Ty Segall Band, instead of the usual hybridized American idol style emo pop that passes for rock and roll these days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind-blower! June 29, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I don't know if it's too early to call album of the year but, this gets my vote thus far. I've loved all the records Ty has done solo but "Slaughterhouse" is the album I've been waiting for him to make. This totally captures the power and energy of his live shows - heavy and loud. The recording also seems less lo-fi than his usual records. That said, this is hardly clean or produced - this is raw and gnarly. I don't think I've heard this great a marriage of melodic singing and song writing combined with pummeling guitars since Nirvana. Yep, it's that good! Also, the vinyl (double gatefold 10") looks really cool.

Star faced underside of sunshine aint for nobody. You can't call unless you know, and the fence just moved. If you waited it too late. I hit pause, repeat then raised Aponte's steak holder face cone. Enjoy it.
