9/10 according to Mike (Norman Records) on Tue 04 Jun, 2013
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!

A quick word about reviews
The following things sometimes happen:
- one of us will like or dislike a record much more than others here do
- artists get their friends to submit suspiciously favourable reviews
- artists get their marketing team to submit even more favourable reviews
- people review stuff when they're high.
If you read a review that you think is bonkers then please do submit a better one. We like to see a bit of debate about the music we stock. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
Norman Records 'mini-reviews'
We would dearly love to have the time to give every record the time it merits, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So if you see one of our 'mini reviews', don't be offended. Don't think we can't be bothered. We're a small team and this is really just our way of saying, "Here's something worth your attention...sorry we haven't had chance to do it justice".
