Editorial Reviews

***Five short years into the TY SEGALL expedition, we re farther and farther out with each and every record. And to every record, a tour or three or four. But enough with the endless noise! Let Ty feel the wind though his hair this year! Time is short and life is precious. It s already sorted that the boy s of two minds; they come lightning-bright and thunder-dark. Either way you slice it (his brain), a storm is brewing as the hemispheres clash together and the songs pour forth. For Ty, coming down off the Twins trip was twice as far as it ever had been before, and in the pools of water and light that stood silently after the gale, he was a changed man. Well, the same young man, really but different too in the days between then and now, naturally, and with more changes and big jumps ahead. A plan quickly evolved: before he checked out of his SF Mission digs and headed down the coast for a new way of life, Ty fired up the machines, hit play and wrung a last helping of blood from his rock, creating a new set of songs to translate his mind-current. Between two minds, between two places, beyond Twins, Sleeper envisions a world of haves and have-nots, but the currency that separates them is psychic. Class is determined by where your head goes and Ty puffs the pied pipe, leading you back to what you forgot you knew. Sleeper is Ty-fi, for sure, but it s not that different from this world we live in. It s a hard-knock existenz, but there s plenty tenderness to try, and the trip is crafted especially to fit in your ears and sail down the canals deep into your skull. The acoustics expand upon contact, creating new shapes for you to fill inside yourself over the full-length of a true album-length entertainment. With Sleeper, Ty Segall explores your mind, coming through his own head to slip inside with thought sharing. Ty engineered this one from beginning to end, and his ultimate sonics were accessed with a freaky hand and an instinct for what makes something perfect. Sleeper flows more colors than ever before through your mind s eye, pushing the walls of the universe out just a micron further, making everything heavier and lighter all at once, to allow for one moment that will live forever.

{8/22/13 Edit: After several more listens, I feel obligated to change my rating from a 4 to a 5. The album was definitely a grower for me -- My first listen already left a good impression on me, the next couple, on which this review is based, left an even better one, and now I'm starting to feel it's just-plain-brilliant. I'll let my (still rather positive) initial thoughts stand.}

When I first heard, in the months leading up to the release of 'Sleeper,' that the album was rumored to be a laid-back acoustic album, my initial reaction was, "Yeah, good one Ty." The ridiculously prolific garage-rocker's previous two full-lengths (two of three released in 2012 alone), 'Slaughterhouse' and 'Twins,' were both in-your-face psych-punk mind-blowers -- with the former bordering on straight-up '70s-style metal at times -- yet the beautiful psych-tinged folk contained herein seems to be at the exact opposite end of the spectrum. But considering the album was recorded after a falling-out with his mother and the passing of his adoptive father, the pure, unadulterated honesty and pensive emotion of 'Sleeper' may have provided Segall some much-needed catharsis in a way that "psych-punk mind-blowers" couldn't.

While he had occasionally flirted with this vibe earlier in his career, most notably on 2011′s 'Goodbye Bread,' the wistful, string-laden opening title track here lets the listener know right away that this is going to be an entirely different Ty Segall, one who's more willing to look to Love, Barrett, and even Bowie for inspiration than he is The Stooges, Jay Reatard, and 60s garage, all while somehow still sounding entirely like himself.

do you like Kurt Vile? then you will like the tripped out acousticness of this, and the little ditties that grind their way into your weary head.

This record is as haunting, sad and beautiful as a turtle crossing a desert road by the light of the moon..

this album is the perfect fade out out to a long day... the guitars bray and sing and there's a sense of accomplishment in these tracks. A special gem for the true fan or passerby likewise. Love this guy! Love his BANDS

Great album. You can listen to this one all the way through. I throw this one on when in the mood for something slower or more calm/tamed. I bought this as a recommendation from the owner of the record store and have listened to it Atleast once a week since. The sound of this album is great, I will follow his other works now.
