Be grateful: Ty Segall did not go soft or go pop on his his latest long-player. Oh, boy, did he not. Instead, the SF. garage-rocker -- whose national profile has been steadily rising for the last several years -- used the occasion of the first album he recorded with his touring band to blow shit up. The aptly named Slaughterhouse brokers heavy slabs of fuzz, some racing tempos, and Segall shredding his vocals with more anger and more abandon than we've ever heard before. The tunefulness of last year's Goodbye Bread isn't gone, it's just buried under a thick mat of ear-bleeding noise and injected with dynamite syrup.

All of which is to say that Slaughterhouse is very good -- more definitive than Goodbye Bread and even wilder than 2010's Melted. The album sees official release next week, June 26 -- but if you want, you can hear it right now.

Slaughterhouse is streaming this very second over at Spin.com. Go listen to it. This is likely as good as primal San Francisco rock gets in 2012.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
