Ty’s been working overtime, dropping non-album nuggets all over this year – 7″s and EPs and now a live favorite tamped down to tape for your listening pleasure. Again wrung out with Albini, this time on a quick break from touring last spring, “Alta” shares much with the sessions that wrought Ty’s last eponymous monster. The track pools in, cool and sparkling before launching into a wall of ’90s grunge that tears the roof off the place. This is a showstopper, an ozone-huffer that reaches for the guitar god in Segall’s bag of personas. It’s easy to see how this one grew out of live performances first and it seems like it might very well cement itself to set-ender placement for quite some time. As far as unexpected presents go, this one’s a pretty sweet package.
