Aug 5, 2019Magnificently, songs like Taste or The Fall are only energised by these diverse sonic signatures. The double-drummers are key, too: Segall’s in the left-hand channel, while frequent collaborator and multi-instrumentalist Charles Moothart is in the right.
Aug 5, 2019First Taste is sharply paced, sequenced for maximum impact as two separate vinyl sides but also effective as a seamless 41-minute listen. ... If the songs don’t linger as long as the sound, chalk that up to Segall being a “first idea, best idea” kind of guy. This time, he concentrated on production. Maybe next time around, he’ll turn his attention to the tunes.
Aug 12, 2019If Creedence Clearwater Revival had experimented with random instruments and slightly creepy voices, maybe they could have made First Taste. Segall's fifth studio LP in four years begins with a sigh of joy and a drum solo. From there, it expands far. Try not to salivate.
