The Second Coming Of Marc Bolan aka Ty Segall releases his umpteenth album, and this one’s a collaboration with fellow retromaniacs White Fence. Joy - the pair’s first LP together since 2012’s Hair - sees the duo sticking to their guns and cranking out fifteen tunes of melodious, Aladdin Sane-aping niceness. Out via Drag City.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 18 July 2018

Just how many Syd Barretts can there be at once? Or Marc Bolans? These two both want to be Syd Barrett/Marc Bolan on their collaborative records of which this is the second.  It also confirms both these people as the busiest men in rock. Ty Segall is... well Ty Segall and that's enough work for about four people whilst White Fence is Tim Presley (see also Cate Le Bon and Drinks).  

The album is exactly what you might expect given the history of the two artists. It consists of electric bursts of unusually structured rock music that many times sounds like the time Love went off the rails with their post 'Forever Changes' single 'Laughing Stock' and the subsequent 'Four Sail' album. Needless to say it's great. Both 'Good Boy' and 'Hey Joel Where You Going With That?' both sound like Syd Barrett meets Arthur Lee with absurd lyricism that could have come from either artist...sample lyric "please blow your horn yellow sandwich submarine makes me cry like a fly". Wibble indeed. 

It may be absurd but it's tremendous fun and both these lads know their way around an oddball melody. The record is an absolute delight for people like me who severely miss the more granny glassed end of '60s psychedelia.
