Sweet melodies and psych guitar freak outs on Mikal Cronin's debut

Stepping away from the rhythm section of Orange County surf-punk bashers The Moonhearts, Mikal Cronin has emerged with a fully realized, cohesive and beautiful debut self-titled LP, out September 20, 2011 via Chicago's Trouble In Mind.
With long-time friend and collaborator Ty Segall producing, Eric Bauer [Ty Segall, Royal Baths] running the tape machine and guests like Thee Oh Sees' John Dwyer, Mikal blends sweet melodies and chords with chunky, psychedelic guitar freak-outs.
If you've ever wondered what the Beach Boys would sound like if they became pals with the Ramones, Mikal Cronin offers his sonic vision and joins Ty Segall out on the road this summer and fall, including stops at Total Trash Fest and Goner Fest, to share his California fuzz take on gorgeously unexpected psych garage pop.
