Mikal Cronin - MCII

Next week, the Bay Area garage rocker and Ty Segall bandmate Mikal Cronin releases MCII, his second solo LP, and the album fucking rules. We’ve posted “Weight,” the excellent early track, but that’s really only the beginning. Over its 37 minutes, the album dabbles in a few different varieties of breezy classic rock, mastering them all, and it adds up to an unbelievably fun and pleasant blast of windows-down springtime guitar-rock. If anything can give Savages’ Silence Yourself a run for next week’s Album Of The Week, it’s this. Do yourself a favor and stream the whole thing over at NPR.

MCII is out 5/7 on Merge.
