If something has felt slightly ‘off’ recently in the rock world, it’s because we haven’t heard anything from the abnormally prolific Ty Segall since the release of Fuzz’s III last October. That’s all set right today as he releases a new album called Harmonizer in its entirety with no fanfare; it’s his first album released under his own name since 2019’s First Taste.
It is the first album to be recorded in Segall’s new Harmonizer Studio and was co-produced with Cooper Crane. The usual suspects from the Freedom Band (Ben Boye, Mikal Cronin, Emmett Kelly, and Charles Moothart) appear throughout, although not necessarily all at the same time. Segall’s wife Denée co-wrote and appears on two tracks.
