9/10 Mike 18 April 2012

Ty Segall and White Fence are two of the finest oddballs from the United States making that lo-fi garage pop that's all over the place at the moment. Segall shits out catchy scratchy lo-fi rock'n'roll tunes like it's going out of fashion and White Fence have a more eclectic, experimental approach to their pop music, so it seems inevitable that a collaboration between these two is going to be totally likeable. Unsurprisingly, it is, and despite shared songwriting duties it's hard to pick out who's written what as it all blurs into a bright, upbeat mess of Nuggets-style garage pop with gleeful delivery and unabashedly fun tunes. Phil's saying that it reminds him of Dukes of Stratosphere, but I've never heard them so I'll have to take his word for it. It's reminding me of Thee Oh Sees personally. The light organ tones and precision sloppiness of the gain-heavy trebly guitars are a real summery mix, especially when they bring the unrestrained vocal harmonies into the picture as well, which is often. 'Scissor People' opens with a quick sequence of punk samples that sounds exactly like it's been cribbed from Jason Forrest's 'My 36 Favourite Punk Songs' but probably hasn't. Meanwhile the closer 'Tongues' recalls Primal Scream clumsily covering 'Fly Away' by Lenny Kravitz...only it's good! As you would expect, then, a thoroughly enjoyable collection.
