Three Bells is a sprawling double album, perhaps Ty Segall’s most intriguing to date. Opening with The Bell, it builds slowly before becoming shrouded in his signature fuzz-laden sound. That isn’t the complete focus of the record though, at times Segall moves towards a synth-heavy sound, particularly on To You.

However, Void, Move and Watcher are where Segall really shines on Three Bells. These densely layered tracks are exceptional, often starting out in a subdued manner, they quickly morph and grow towards their snarling crescendo, all happening in an almost effortless manner. Aside from the fuzz, there is also a real groove to this record that seems to carry its coherence, only adding to the brilliance of Segall’s latest offering.
