Stuck in My Head: Mikal Cronin – “Get Along/Apathy”

Artist: Mikal Cronin
Album: Mikal Cronin
Homeland: Orange County, CA
Release Date: September 20
Label: Trouble in Mind
Featured Track: “Apathy” & “Get Along”

Mikal is no stranger to the California surf punk scene. He’s been kicking around with the likes of The Moonhearts (formerly Charlie and The Moonhearts) and, my local fave, Ty Segall for quite some time. But now he’s got his own album in the works; due out under his own name September 20 on the Chicago-based label, Trouble in Mind. And he’s got a lot of help from his friends. Produced by long-time friend and collaborator, Ty Segall the 10-track debut also features guest appearances and support from Eric Bauer (Ty Segall, Royal Baths), John Dwyer of The Oh Sees, and Charlie Moonheart. I mean, sweet jeebus, it just doesn’t get any better than that. That line up is right there is like a who’s who of my favorite garage rock bands. I think I’ve died and gone to heaven.

Well maybe not quite yet. I want to make I see Mikal live and in the flesh August 28 at The Hemlock Tavern as part of the Total Trash Fest 3. Yeehaw!

  1. He looks a bit like a young John Cusack in the pic so in other words quite hot. Loving the pleasant punk riffage of both tracks! Its just a shame his surname is the same as my german teacher from school.
