Mikal Cronin - "Get Along" & "Apathy"

Mikal Cronin, a longtime Ty Segall collaborator and the bassist for west coast punk rockers Moonhearts, is set to venture out on his own on September 20th with his self-titled psych-rock debut via Trouble In Mind Records. Last Friday, we heard Cronin and Segall tear into a David Bowie classic with some rip-roaring guitar work. Here, Cronin is again joined by Segall—this time on drums—along with friends Charlie Moonheart and Thee Oh Sees' John Dwyer, who contributes flute to album opener "Is It Alright." But as heavy and guitar-dominated as the mix is on tracks like "Get Along" and "Apathy," it's Cronin's vocal melodies and delivery that really shine and sink their hooks into the listener as they cut their way through walls of fuzz. Two listens deep and I promise you'll be singing along.
