Ty Segall’s Goodbye Bread sounds like a sunburn: warm, bright, and painful in the best possible way. Beach grunge, maybe?

You can imagine Segall and crew literally rolling out of bed and into the studio, all bedheady and sleepeyed. Everything is just the slightest bit off, one deliberate beat behind what you’d expect, vocals just shy of slurring — see especially “Comfortable Home,” which changes so often you’re amazed it holds together at all. There’s a similar laziness to the slow clapping on “I Can’t Feel It.” This group clearly delights in imperfection — and let’s be honest, there’s nothing more attractive than not really caring.

The record has intermittent moments of cleaner guitar (check the title track), but Segall is at his best when he revels in noise, as on the distortion-happy “You Make the Sun Fry” and “Where Your Mind Goes,” which is far and away my favorite Bread track.
