Albums Of The Week: Ty Segall | Hello, Hi

The L.A. garage rocker unplugs & heads for Laurel Canyon on this folksy detour.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Tossing down straight acoustic shots with electric guitar back, Hello, Hi rides through the valley of yer ol’ Canyon legends, finding an isolated place to unspool Ty Segall’s copious reserves of nervous energy beneath an open sky.

Swarms of harmony vocals caper among the clouds, but there’s a rider on the horizon, crossbow trained upon his very heart: the engine driving all the relationships of life, whether down Broadway or over the cliffs at night! Whatever doesn’t get killed is getting stronger all the time. A lean, mean deal, baked in saltwater and sunlight, compassion pouring out its beautiful blue eyes.”
