Ty Segall

Thee Oh Sees affiliate Ty Segall's Nuggets-esque garage bop is sprinkled with Little Richard-style piano solos, surf riffs and the Cramps' sneering sass. Formerly a one-man institution, Segall is currently touring with a full band in support of his latest on Goner Records, Melted. It's an apt title: Melted's muddled, lo-fi fuzz is messy and sticky and totally hits the spot when it's hot outside, sort of like a half-dissolved Otter Pop. But there’s something more substantial about Segall’s music than the fleeting, one-note appeal of frozen sugar water. When popsicles go out of season, we forget they exist until summer rolls back around, but Melted is the sort of stick-to-your-ribs record you’ll still be dancing to in December. With The Girls, Basemint, Diver Down. SARA BRICKNER
