12 Songs, 26 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Recorded with no-frills panache, 2009’s Lemons is Ty Segall’s second album of punked-up garage nuggets and soft-sung, close-quarters rambles. But despite no song cracking the three-minute mark, the lo-fi Californian makes a lasting impression. The otherwise primitive “Standing At the Station” relishes deliciously twangy guitar tangents, while “Rusted Dust” dials back the distortion to lay bare a gorgeously vulnerable ballad. Of course, said distortion soon comes roaring back for a particularly woolly cover of Captain Beefheart’s “Drop Out Boogie.”
