TY SEGALL & MIKAL CRONIN
REVERSE SHARK ATTACK
in the red
equal parts danceable garage rock & effects-ridden psychedelia, this is a mind-blowing explosion of loud guitars, pounding rhythms & vocal harmonies.
originally released in 2009 as a vinyl-only title on the kill shaman label, reverse shark attack is a collaboration by ty segall & mikal cronin, two longtime chums who grew up together in laguna beach. these 8 shambolic, psychedelic jams are sure to please the most scrutinising rocker. the centrepiece of the album is the title track, a side-long epic that goes from beatles-esque melody to psych / folk weirdness before exploding into a ventures-induced headache of smashed drums & wildly vibrant surf guitars. it’s a must-have release for fans of these 2 artists, & nothing like either of them have done on their own.
