Ty Segall: Fudge Sandwich [Album Review]

Ty Segall Fudge Sandwich In The Red [2018] Fire Note Says: Ty makes all 11 tracks here his own! Album Review: I typically don’t get too excited about a covers record but Fudge Sandwich from Ty Segall is a template for how to do it right. Ty is not trying here and that is the magic of Fudge Sandwich. He simply recorded songs that he enjoys. You might be thinking this is the opportunity for Ty Segall to show some sort of pop side...

The Friday Fire Track: Robert Pollard – “Subspace Biographies”

Trying something a bit different today as the Friday Fire Track goes back to 1998 and features a song from Robert Pollard’s sophomore solo record Waved Out. “Subspace Biographies” is easily one of my favorite Robert Pollard solo songs with its gentle opening before its foot tapping charge keeps the high kicks going. The song just keeps moving and churning as it almost drowns out Pollard’s lyrics near its...
