The increasingly prolific Ty Segall (this record credited to the Ty Segall Band is his second of 3 planned releases for 2012) has worn a few different coats throughout his young career. He's gone from garage rock saviour, and the heir apparent to the throne vacated by the late, great Jay Reatard, to sensitive singer/songwriter/stoner rock guy a la Kurt Vile. But Slaughterhouse is high octane garage rock record that slams between pummeling drums, feedback squalling guitar solos and reverb heavy screaming. The record opens with screeching feedback before blasting into "Death" which sets the tone for a record full of high energy rockers. The title track, a sub 2 minute blast of punk energy has screaming vocals that sound like they were recorded in a deep dark cave buried deep in the mix as the drums pound and the bass and guitar race each other to reach the end of the song. "Wave Goodbye" one of the records lengthier tracks is a blues-rock workout that showcases Ty's guitar skills (which are on point throughout the record, almost every track having at least some small guitar solo) which segues into the home stretch of Nugget's style jams filtered through Cramps style recording quality with screeching guitars and screaming, sneering vocals. The album closes with the appropriately named 10 minute sludge creeper "Fuzz War" and closes the book on a record that has very clear goals for how it wants to sound, and hits the mark every time. An entertaining listen that flows well from back to front.
