We are proudly a Ty Segall shop and if one of the great musicians operating today wants to make a fully percussive record of 'love songs', then we're fully on board for this to become the fully percussive record of 'love songs' ever recorded. To be fair, this teaser track goes in hard, it's full vibes, heavy drums and electronic pads that sound like a big art prog jazz monster.

Love Rudiments is a meditation by Ty Segall on his first love: the drums. Known popularly as a singing guitar player, he gen- erally starts the recording of his songs by laying down a drum track. Love Rudiments kicks off with drums and percussion, then adds a few other percussive and production aspects. It travels a great journey in this configuration. However, Love Rudiments wasn’t written or performed to present as some kind of solo drums album it’s just another music album, with vibes (figurative as well as literal), feels, a theme and a through-line.

Never one to shy away from a challenge, Ty’s made an instru- mental album of percussive music that rides the wild surf of a waxing-then-waning love affair from the first blinding look, to the eventual recognition, that look back at love’s rudiments, viewed from beyond and outside that seemingly infinite sen- sation.

And why not? Drums are a melody instrument too. Ty plays them with precision and sensitivity, delving deep into the textures of timpani, vibraphone, xylophone, percussion and e-drums, all of them occupying space within the luxe stereo spread of the drumkit. In the process, a psychological space is opened a private emotional location where only two can meet.

Love Rudiments reembodies the passion and compulsion that drives all of Ty Segall’s music in a suite of moments played on orchestral batterie to explore the most delicate passages of human interaction playing on the bones of love.
