Ty Segall collectors will be happy to get their hands on this latest offering from the mercurial garage tyke - this time he’s sharing seven inches with Chad & The Meatbodies, and his offering is pretty different to his usual fare. His ‘Music For A Film 1’ is a hard grooving instrumental with lots of percussion and a gnarly fuzz guitar spluttering out stop-start garage funk snot. The debt to ‘60s surf/tropicalia/titty-shaker instrumentals is heavily apparent but as always Segall delivers it with such wild confidence that it’s totally convincing.

Over on the other side Chad & The Meatbodies have a hard-hitting garage punky number that sounds a lot like Thee Oh Sees, fast fuzzed guitar, psychedelic reverby vocal harmonies and falsetto oooh-oohs and a pounding, rumbling rhythm section add up to a souped up take on ‘60s garage that’s totally enjoyable and, as I mentioned before, sounds like Thee Oh Sees. At the end there’s some cheeseball Tight Phantomz-esque guitar fun too. Not exactly doing anything that hasn’t already been done a hundred times, but somehow squeezing everything you already love about garage rock into a glorious three-minute rush of unironic fun. Very curious to hear more from this lot. Great single!

So, what do you think?
