Northern Transmissions

Though the record isn’t totally coherent across every one of Segall’s covers, there’s an exuberant sense of fun that makes it easy to put on and enjoy.


With ‘Fudge Sandwich’, Ty breathes new life into an already solid collection of rock songs, and he is an ever-mutating musician on this album as he is in real life.


Segall didn't write any of the songs on Fudge Sandwich, but these performances are as much his as anything that's come from his pen, and if you still need to be convinced that he's one of the freest and most adventurous minds in contemporary rock & roll, this might just do the trick.


It's neat to hear Segall's version of these songs — revitalizing them and making them his own — and he certainly offered up a colourful mix.

Spectrum Culture

Those who know the songs will get a kick out of seeing what Segall’s scalpel does to them. But it’s hard to imagine anyone going back to them over the originals – or the four other albums Segall put out this year.

Loud and Quiet

At the end of it all, Segall’s fourth (a fifth has since arrived) outing of 2018 is the low point of a very successful year, an intriguing addition to a songwriter challenging psych-rock conventions, but a little hard to digest.

The Loner is one of my favorite underrated Neil Young classics, and Ty's killed it with this interpretation, as he did with most of them. The Grateful Dead and Funkadelic covers are my other favorites.
