Ty Segall

Why: When raw-boned garage rockers "mature," their music can turn into limp facsimiles of their earlier tumescent output. Such is not the case with Ty Segall. Making the jump to Drag City for his new Goodbye Bread album, Segall has slightly slowed his tempos and smoothed some of his tunes' gnarly edges, but his always-catchy melodies have become more sophisticated. Still, nobody's going to mistake Segall for Polyphonic Spree, and onstage he remains a dynamo of riveting vocalizing and jagged riffs.
