“There’s a case to be made that the Oblivians are the greatest Memphis music act of the post-Al Green/Big Star era…With a deeper musicality and more charisma than most, but with no loss of energy or attitude for it, they are legends in their scene for good reason.”—Memphis Flyer
Desperation, the long-awaited new album from acclaimed garage punk trio the Oblivians, will be released June 4 on In The Red Records. This is the first record from the band in over fifteen years and follows 1997’s …Play 9 Songs with Mr. Quintron. In celebration of the new album, the trio will embark on a series of special dates this spring/summer. More details to be announced shortly.
Desperation was produced by band-member Greg Cartwright (with special help from Doug Easley) and engineered by Collin Dupuis at Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye Sound in Nashville, TN. In addition to the three members, the 14-track album features special guests Mr. Quintron and Miss Pussycat on organ, percussion and vocals on the track “Call The Police.”
Formed in Memphis in 1993, the Oblivians are Greg Oblivian (aka Greg Cartwright), Eric Oblivian (aka Eric Friedl) and Jack Oblivian (aka Jack Yarber). The trio released their debut LP Soul Food in 1995, followed by 1996’s Popular Favorites and 1997’s …Play 9 Songs with Mr. Quintron. In both their live shows and recordings, the three members alternate between instruments, each playing guitar, drums and singing lead vocals. “

San Francisco psych wunderkind Ty Segall continues a tireless musical assault on ears and minds with his third album, Melted. Segall says it sounds like “cherry cola, Sno-Cones and taffy.” Indeed! Over the past two years he’s released records more often than most people do laundry, but somehow there is still a heap of anticipation for this new album on Goner packed full of truly psychedelic pop songs with great vocals and exciting arrangements.
On the heels of two critically acclaimed solo albums, Segall holed up in a basement studio with Mike Donovan of the SicAlps in late 2009 and early 2010 to come up with Melted. It’s a carefree yet precise balance of acoustic and electric elements. Distorted echo and thunder mix together with enough clean guitar lines and addictive choruses to deliver an album that recalls the ’60s without sounding like anything created during that decade. Time melts away, vision melts away, minds melt away. Get Melted!
"Ty Segall’s short, sharp songs peal out of the garage without raising the doors, sending 1960s rock riffs crashing through splintered, smart-ass lo-fi buzz." -Pitchfork
"His second album, Lemons, solidifies his standing as one to watch…. There are few moments when Ty Segall isn’t irresistibly catchy." -Nylon
"Warped sonics do nothing to diminish the impact of his vigorously nostalgic riff and stomp. Segall thunders along with the timeless, impudently rowdy energy of a cement basement dance-off." -Spin
