Chaino
Eye of the Spectre LP
Dionysus Records

Another Chaino re-release and this is great as always. Wilder than wild drumsounds by way of  Africa and Americanized to suit the exotica-fans. This is really cool though. Wild and crazy drums – what more do you want? [TS]

 

Charlie & the Moonhearts
Drop in Drop Out 7” (Tic Tac Totally)
I Think You’re Swell 7” (Goodbye Boozy)
Real Hot Breakers 7" (Trouble in Mind Records)

 Party Fowl
Std’s 7” (Goodbye Boozy)

 Ty Segall & Mikal Cronin
Pop Song 7” (Goodbye Boozy)

 Okie Dokie
Badhammer 7” (Goodbye Boozy)

 All of these records have in common that they feature Ty Segall and/or Mikal Cronin. These guys seem to have an endless supply of talent and songs to go with it. Most of these singles are on the cool Goodbye Boozy label who keeps tapping the Ty Segall vein. And I for one couldn’t be happier. Charlie & the Moonhearts is Mikal and friends recorded by Ty and they are dark and dangerous in that kinda Lost Sounds but both surfier and punkier style. Cool and good but not outstanding. Better than most though. The TTT single is a bit different but with the Trouble in Mind release they seem to have changed their sound a bit. Poppier and catchier. More 60's sounding and it's sunnier overall and is undeniably pretty great. Will keep my eyes on them! Party Fowl is Mikal and Ty on bass and drums with Seth and Adam on guitar and vocals. Really trashy garagerock veering more in the Rip Off tradition than anywhere else. Pretty great but maybe not that memorable. Cool stuff however and worthy of a few spins for sure.
Ty Segall and Mikal together though spells dynamite! “Pop Song” is one amazing tune that I can’t get enough of. Aaargh! It’s just so catchy and great! B-side is really awesome too by the way, making this a no-miss single! What a hitrecord!
Okie Dokie is again Mikal and some friends and this is really dark and disturbing. Weird and wired to the max. Vocals are repetetive and on the brink of chanting, almost rapping to heavy drums and cranked up, blown out guitars. Really cool. Needs to be heard! [TS]

 

King Khan & BBQ Show
Invisible Girl LP
In the Red Records

Their awe-inspiring third album. Amazing songwriting (as always is the case with these cats), fantastic sound and while their sound isn’t “new” anymore it still amazes me how great they are. Some songs on here are close to perfection, “Third Ave”, “Anala”.. etc so so good, too good to be true! Love it up! [TS]

 

Ty Segall
My sunshine 7”
Trouble in Mind Records

I worship at the altar of Ty Segall! Here’s yet another killer single and it’s just mindblowing how good this stuff is. You need to hear this and you need almost all of his recorded output cause everything is this great. A-side has the killer pop-tune “My Sunshine” and b-side has two punker-style songs with hooks. [TS]
