California X - Pond Rot

Need a sludgy grunge fix to cope with the unbearable sleekness of the modern world? Well, once you've worn out this year's batch of Ty Segall albums, give the new California X track a whirl.

'Pond Rot', taken from the groups forthcoming eponymous debut album out on Jan 15th, is a welcome slice of American grunge, modelled in the image of Dinosaur Jr. The riffs are thumping and fuzzed up although sound much more produced and focused than previous material, while the vocals are suitably whiny and depraved ("I want a pond to rot in") What's not to like?
