HEAVY CREAM: Super Treatment: LP

May 08, 2013

If Ty Segall hasn’t already invented it, he should invent the “Ty Segall Effects Pedal.” If you’re familiar with Segall, you know what I mean. Super Treatment, produced by Segall, is a sonic departure from Heavy Cream’s straight-ahead, Runaways-inflected debut LP Danny, but not in a bad way. Still retains a skuzzy Nashville aesthetic (I think I just made that up) that label Infinity Cat has nurtured. I haven’t seen Heavy Cream live in a few years so I don’t know if they sustain the Segall-esque sound on stage. I hope their new drummer keeps up that Ramones beat—I like the new, punchier Heavy Cream.
