Ty Segall's been heralded by critics as the "next Jay Reatard" too many times to count, but the similarities are, for the most part, superficial. There's something distinctly Californian about Segall's songs and indolent style of singing, and his latest LP, last year's Goodbye Bread, displays more solo Lennon than Oblivians influence (chances are Segall would have picked up a guitar and begun cutting records even if that whole punk thing had never happened). But like Reatard, Segall is overwhelmingly prolific—he's been involved in more than 40 releases since his first in 2005, and his latest, a split LP with psychedelic pop band White Fence titled Hair, is one of his most consistent to date. MORGAN TROPER
