Ty Segall feat. Shannon Lay: Ice Plant

Initially obscure (with various sound effects and jazzy percussion) and shifting with delicate, layered vocals, Ty Segall’s “Ice Plant” is a “fever dream of my childhood,” he says. The majority of the song (from his forthcoming album First Taste) is occupied by Segall and Lay’s a cappella vocals—a far cry from the previous fuzzy, psychedelic, garage rock tracks from the record. It all floats along dreamily, revealing little evidence as to how far the listener has gone, until it suddenly fades away. Then a brief piano outro appears, concluding the listener’s trip.
