Fuzz – Fuzz
Debut album from this heavy rock trip featuring Ty Segall and Charlie Moothart. Eight brand new pummeling tracks guaranteed to devastate.
The word "prolific" comes up in almost every discussion of San Francisco songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and garage-psych wonder Ty Segall. With a discography that grew almost exponentially ever since he came onto the scene in the late 2000s, productivity with uncommonly strong results became one of his calling cards. With Fuzz, Segall joins longtime friends and collaborators Charles Moothart and Roland Cosio to create a band deserving of its own entity status, channeling the (aptly) fuzzy guitar tones, tin-can drums, and saturated psychedelia of early-'70s proto-metal gods like Blue Cheer, the Groundhogs, and Jimi Hendrix. Segall, usually known for his guitar-wielding antics, actually makes an incredible showing as the drummer for Fuzz, still joining guitarist/vocalist Moothart with his distinctly sneery vocals.
Fuzz, on the whole, is a heavy, greasy, stoned affair, with enough of a foot in the past to cast a sepia-toned haze over all the songs, but still a boldly creative and original set of room-demolishing tunes.
