MusicfestNW: Ty Segall, Mike Donovan, Old Light, La Luz 

When: Fri., Sept. 6, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $15
Ty Segall continues his uncanny ability to crank out records at an astonishing pace, with a consistency that should give bands that have been around twice as long something to think about. Segall hasn't put out a single dud. His latest full-length Sleeper isn't aligned with the raucous noise of Melted and Slaughterhouse, instead stripping away the fuzz and the lyrical ambiguity in favor of acoustic guitars and personal sentiments. Those who attended Pickathon last month got a taste of Segall's stripped-down acoustic set (his first such performances, as he told NPR recently)—it was quieter, but no less powerful. Segall has written some of the best pop hooks in recent memory. Sleeper shows that whether they're cloaked in fuzz or or left threadbare, they still dig deep. MARK LORE
