Saturday Fun Fun Fun Fest Album Reviews

Via singer Ty Segall, familiarity ensues early on this power trio's sophomore LP. In this outfit, the busy "Girlfriend" songwriter bandies his wonted six-string for a noble go on the drums. Commencing the hourlong disc is brazen seven-minute opener "Time Collapse," its stoner psychedelia mash enduring throughout 14 tracks. Black Sabbath echoes in Segall's vocals and guitarist Charles Moothart's monstrous blues-doom solos, but Kyuss and the late Jay Reatard's like-minded ethos also arise. The Californians then filter those influences through a grimy garage-rock lens. (4:30pm, Orange stage)
