Ty Segall And White Fence Team Up For Psychedelic “Joy”

by BUST Magazine

(Drag City)

The ever-prolific Ty Segall has teamed up with White Fence (Tim Presley) to produce Joy, which is, in some ways, an extension of their 2012 collaboration, Hair. While more polished than Hair, this mind-meld is exactly what you’d expect: psychedelic riffs and buzzed-out guitars permeate Joy, but at its core, many tracks are like twisted pop songs. “Body Behavior” features dynamic harmonies that sound like they’re played in reverse, Twin Peaks-style. From the dissonant “Hey Joel, Where You Going With That?” to the folksy track “My Friend,” Joy has many tricks up its sleeves, even if it’s a little frenetic. (4/5)
