Rolling out of the mist and dust and silence of time, Ty Segall
is behind the wheel of a sleek new ride, a confetti of pages
torn from his ongoing saga blizzarding into the air behind him.
With Harmonizer, his first album in two years, Ty glides
smoothly into unexpected territory, right where he likes to
find himself! Responding to the challenge his new songs
gave him: a synthtastic production redesign, Ty kicks back
with bottom-heavy creativity, dialing up a wealth of guitar and
keyboard settings to do the deed. Harmonizer is a glossy,
barely-precedented sound for him, and truth, it enraptures
the ear-but in Ty's hands, the sound is also a tool that allows
him to cut through dense undergrowth, making for some of
his cleanest songs and starkest ideas to date. Harmonizer's
production model couches tightly-controlled beats in thick
keyboard textures, with direct-input guitar signal whining
and buzzing purposefully from left to right. The Freedom
Band appear all over the record, but often one at a time,

their contributions leaving a distinctive footprint on the pro-
ceedings wherever they appear. Operating in this airtight environment with

an eye towards precision, feel, and explosive mass, Ty's crafted a formidable
listening encounter-and once you get between the lines, the need to know
more grows more compelling with every song.
The thing about closed doors is they need opening again, no matter what
happens. You open them and then you can pass through them. And there's
light on the other side. That's what this album is about.
The first recording to be released from Ty's just-completed Harmonizer
Studios, Harmonizer benefits from a collaboration with Cooper Crain, who
co-produced the album with Ty. The Venn diagram of these guys unites them
in DIY/punk dyed-in-the-wooldom; Ty's propers you know, but Cooper's own
unique journey in rhythm, minimalism and DIY (as heard on his productions
with CAVE, Bitchin Bajas and Jackie Lynn) mines the depths around Ty's
peerless vocal attack and aid in the latest chapter of his never-ending search
for unfathomably corrosive guitar sounds. Spoiler alert: they found some more!
Bursting with transcendent energy, Harmonizer is an extension of the
classic style of Emotional Mugger and Sleeper, revisiting the lonely days and
loathsome nights of the alienated, grown-up-wrong soul, to make it all right
in the end.
