The one and only Ty Segall is setting out on a few West Coast dates with Mikal Cronin next month. It’s a show not to be missed, for sure. Having recently seen the pair at El Rio, I can honestly say they will melt your mind. After all these years of shouting my love from the rooftop for this artist, I’ll spare you the hyperbole and cut to the chase. Just do it.

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!
How do I love thee, Ty Segall? Let me count the ways. Here’s a new video that cropped up for the track “I Wear Black” from the duo Ty Segall and Mikal Cronin (of Charlie and The Moonhearts) off their album Reverse Shark Attack. Whatever that means.
