Ty Segall Channels Heavy Metal Pioneers in New Band, Fuzz

As EDM and pop continue to dominate contemporary music, there's been a dearth of good ole fashioned psychedelic scuzz-rock that seemed au courant a decade ago. Thankfully, prolific singer/multi-instrumentalist Ty Segall and his group Fuzz slightly re-balance the scales with "What's in My Head," the latest track from their upcoming eponymous debut album.

The trio, composed of Segall, Charles Moothart (who also plays in Segall's band) and bassist Roland Cosio, have known each other since high school. After channeling proto-metal vets like Blue Cheer and Cream on "Loose Sutres," the group looks to Black Sabbath for the slower, sludgier "What's in My Head." Listen above.

The band head out on their first cross-country tour starting October 2 in Tucson, AZ, just in time for the October 1 release of their album.
