There's no denying Ty Segall's prolificacy in creating some of the best contemporary garage rock albums. His upcoming self-titled album, out next week, January 27, is his ninth solo release since 2008, a span of records that have embodied an artist who can effortlessly and seemingly innately make the familiar feel fresh.
"Break A Guitar" is the second drop from his new album, a 180-degree spin from the acoustic pastoral of the previously-leaked "Orange Color Queen," and a reminder that beyond all the tender beauty that he's capable of, he knows thrashing rock best. With a week to go before the album hits, "Break A Guitar" shares the same ’70s vibe that colored the previous single, but here’s it’s presented as pure, thrashing rock ‘n’ roll number instead of acoustic romance.
