Something Old (T Rex) & Something New (Ty Segall)

Hello Music Lovers! Bruce from Some Velvet Blog back again with another edition of Something Old & Something New.

Of the many cool special releases for this year’s Record Store Day was a 6 song EP by San Fran rockers Ty Segall called Ty Rex. The band didn’t go for the obvious T Rex classix on this; instead they opted for some lesser know jams including “Fist Heart Mighty Dawn Dart” (see below), “Buick Mackane,” “The Slider,” and “Elemental Child.” TS totally nail the T Rex vibe on their 12″ with some fuzzy and scuzzy readings of these Marc Bolan gems. Below, a couple of original T Rex tunes to make it complete.
