Pickathon aimed at answering one question “what does it feel like or what does it take to be called the best when it comes to weekend festivals of the year, especially for music lovers. 2015 is exactly the fifteenth celebration of this excellently unique festival which is known for its ability to schedule and bring together a myriad of diverse musical arts and artists together.
An excellent vinyl only split was released by Easy Sound showing how King Tuff and Ty Segall performed at the 2013 festival at the Pickathon. This looks very appropriate when we take into consideration the entire historical background of Pickathon itself as a musical festival. The first half was completely taken by Segall, coming with a total of six songs. Taking into consideration his reputation as a known shredder, these six songs can be seen as fairly and excellently stripped down.
A large number of the short song set can be traced back to the 2013’s sleeper and what we can say was a lo fi performance that was meant to excellently exhibit the strength of the album. In most cases, the urgency of the songs are being clearly depicted this time. The entire performance was roundup by Segall with a speeded up and terrific performance track “Girlfriend” which is from their 2010 album “Melted. This was seen as a great turning point for the high-energy set of King Tuff.
If you are someone, in fact a rock enthusiasts who had never heard anything of the nee Kyle Thomas of King Tuff, then the Pickathon 12 was the marvellous occasion to do so. It was very easy and simple to see and understand why Ty Segall and King Tuff were being paired for this new release; that’s, they both have the capabilities of turning music into a garage pop-oriented style whiles making sure that such music still has all the qualities of a contemporary music that will entice and excite the modern pop enthusiasts and lover.
This new combined setting showed that in case you had never heard of King Tuff or Tyga and you want to listen to them, then it was better to do that in such a live setting, and that was at Pickathon 12. Starting the entire festival with the song “Keep on Movin” and “Anthem” which are from the self-titled songs and releases back at 2012, King Tuff or at best Thomas’s reputation was taken to the next level as he was dubbed by many as an awesome musician. Though there are people who might not be at par with Thomas’snotty vocals if we may say, but those vocals seem to be a perfect fit for music. The performance was awesome with the team performing songs like “Stranger” and the “Dancin on You”, all from the “Was Dead” album that was released back in 2008. The team ended the show with the amazing pop vibe of the 70’s called “She’s on Fire”.
Though there are life bands that made hits, there are also those that missed the mark. However, this Live at Pickathon between King Tuff and Ty Segall is something that was cherished.
The King Tuff and Ty Segal, Live AtPickathon set was released on the 5th of May in 2015 by Easy Sound.
