TY REX: Self-titled: LP

Mar 22, 2016

I got into T. Rex late but fell totally in love with the band, so when this record arrived I was intrigued and pleasantly surprised. Ty Segall seems to be putting out a new record everyday, which is great, but it can be overwhelming. The Ty Rex take on T. Rex is really loose and garage-y, as you would expect. Most of the covers are done at the original tempo with Segall’s lo-fi twist on the vocals and overall production. “20th Century Boy” is taken to a much faster tempo, how I imagine T. Rex would sound at a live show if they were having a blast. There are some really great song selections on here, but what’s more important is the songs he didn’t pick—the obvious ones that have been covered ad nauseam.
