The Los Angeles trio of Ty Segall (drums, vocals), Charles Moothart (guitar, vocals), and Chad Ubovich (bass, vocals) release III this Friday, October 23, on the esteemed label In The Red Recordings, five years after the double album II. In the meantime, they present an excerpt, “Mirror”, after a hallucinatory stop-motion video for “Spit” and the single “Returning”. “Mirror” picks up the energy of the previous tracks, with pounding drums and powerful guitar riffs. It’s pure FUZZ. Here, the band uses III‘s ensemble approach of taking the essential ingredients of “guitar music” and “rock ’n’ roll power trio”, and putting them on the chopping block. The clip, directed by Joshua Erkman and shot with very limited means given the current restrictions, is a real freakfest, with some bodily oddities as a bonus.
With hammering drums and powerful guitar riffs, there’s pure FUZZ to be found on the new single “Mirror”.
