by Mikal Cronin
Released: Sep 2011
Label: Trouble In Mind Records
A regular in Ty Segall's band, Mikal Cronin's first solo effort is a heavy set that reaches into the same dirty bag of lo-fi tricks, putting an avant-garde spin on fuzzed garage rock: There's a freaky flute on "Is It Alright," a shrieking sax on "Apathy" and a droning organ on "Slow Down." But mostly there's a lot of scruffy guitar licks roughly built on Cali surf-rock, from the Beach Boys harmonies to the swinging psych-pop of "Get Along," "Gone" and "Situation" to the slow-dance-worthy "Hold on Me." Segall even drops by to provide those slapdash beats.
