This is Ty Segall's wonderful lo-fi surf band. Although Ty's music gets you on your feet and makes you groove, this is even better. if you have a chance to seem them live, i highly recommend it; their almost too good live.
These songs were recorded over a 5 year period in Olympia and Anacortes, Washington, during the in-between times at recording sessions and shows. Phil Elverum does not let me down with this album. He summons his friends to accompany him and harmonize the melancholy melodies that make you want to put this album on repeat on a rainy day.

After years of recording in relative seclusion in the hills of Los Angeles, Ariel Pink (the first non-Animal Collective member on the Paw Tracks roster) made his official Paw Tracks debut with The Doldrums. Recording at home with a guitar, bass, keyboard, and 8-track (the drum sounds were created with his mouth). Aerial Pink invents a new type of genre with his unique sounds. This album is definitely an acquired taste, but if you acquire it, you will not stop.
