Ty Segall – SLEEPER, VietNam, David Novick

San Francisco psych wunderkind Ty Segall continues a tireless musical assault on ears and minds with his third album, Melted. Segall says it sounds like “cherry cola, Sno-Cones and taffy.” Indeed! Over the past two years he’s released records more often than most people do laundry, but somehow there is still a heap of anticipation for this new album on Goner packed full of truly psychedelic pop songs with great vocals and exciting arrangements.

On the heels of two critically acclaimed solo albums, Segall holed up in a basement studio with Mike Donovan of the SicAlps in late 2009 and early 2010 to come up with Melted. It’s a carefree yet precise balance of acoustic and electric elements. Distorted echo and thunder mix together with enough clean guitar lines and addictive choruses to deliver an album that recalls the ’60s without sounding like anything created during that decade. Time melts away, vision melts away, minds melt away. Get Melted!

VietNam marks their long-awaited return with a new full-length album, an A.merican D.ream, to be released on Mexican Summer Feb 26th, 2013 and first single “Kitchen Kongas” out December 11th, 2012. Michael Gerner, the creative force behind VietNam, is back for the first time in five years with a new six-piece lineup laying down their renowned signature cocktail of apocalyptic street blues.

After taking a long break to explore his interest in ambient analog synth soundscapes on the West Coast (scoring films and recording with his project D.A.), Gerner has now made a bold comeback to both New York City and rock and roll with his best record to date – adding a new dimension to the instrumentation with a moog player and a violinist. aAD is a cinematic dark concrete ride that revs through demons and detours with greasy grace.
Throughout the 2000′s, vocalist/guitarist/songwriter Gerner and his revolving lineups spent years tirelessly burning up America’s moonlit highways and releasing memorable records that include the critically-acclaimed self-titled debut LP on Kemado Records in 2007, three prior EP’s on The Social Registry, and their debut, The Concrete’s Always Grayer on the Other Side of the Street, on Vice Records in 2003. When the work, hopes, and dreams finally culminated in a crescendo of across-the-board success, Michael Gerner and VietNam disappeared without a trace…until now.
We here at Mexican Summer, are truly grateful for the reunion of an inspirational artist and original band, especially with being able to share one of VietNam’s most powerful singles, this month.
