Ty Seagall - Spiders

This thing is so damn fun and has great tunes!
Best Live album:
1.Royal Headache -Royal Headache
This album is absolutely fucking stunning. Take 60's soul singing add a dash of 80's college rock and mix it all up with a heavy dose of garage punk and DAMN you are the best band of the year and no ones heard you! Get this album pressed in the states guys! You deserve a wider audience.
2.Peaking Lights - 936
Equal parts late night vampire voodoo roller rink disco and dreamy sunshiny pop bliss.
3.Thee Oh Sees - Castlemania Carrion Crawler/The Dream
Each release keeps getting better and weirder. Love these guys. You've come along way from Pink and Brown Mr. Dwyer.
4.Blues Control and Laraji - FRKY's Vol. 8
Excuse me while I drift on milky white stars into infinity.
5. Dirty Beaches - Badlands
Mother fucker made 50's croon and rockabilly, sexy, scary and cool again. Paging David Lynch, here's the music to any movie you ever make again.
6.The Men - Leave Home
These Brooklyn boys got some serious chops. This album and in particular this song blew my fucking mind. Neu meets hardcore? Sign me the fuck up.
7.Soft Moon - Total Decay
Going a little industrial but still keeping the post-punk skronk on top. Love this guys whole mindset towards music.
8.Ty Segall - Singles 2007-2010
I'm putting this here because I really hate Goodbye Bread. Don't get me wrong some of the songs on that album are good, especially live. I think the production tears the whole fucking thing down. Blander than a beige living room on christmas ya''ll. Thank god he's not sticking to that formula as indicated by that Spiders single. Phew!
9.Sun Araw - Ancient Romans
Ahh yeah! Lets travel back in time in our fucking minds. Heady synth blobs and globs all over this gem.
10.Human Eye - They Came From The Sky
What if aliens decided garage punk was cool? Timmy Vulgar knows.
Song of the Year:
John Maus - Believer
This was the JAM over the summer. Seeing him live ?(was at that show) Totally fucking nuts. The man is pure energy!
