I’m beginning to think Ty Segall is somehow magical—it’s almost as though the musicians who work with him end up sprinkled with a sort of pixie dust that gives them some of his power. In the past few years, Segall collaborators such as Mikal Cronin, Cory Hanson (who fronts Wand), and Tim Presley (aka White Fence) have put out some of the best rock I’ve heard in ages. I’ve liked the previous White Fence records plenty, but Presley has made a huge leap on the new For the Recently Found Innocent (Drag City). Produced by Segall (who also does some drumming), it’s a buzzing blast of 60s pysch-pop with a distinct British flair, thanks in part to Presley’s affected accent. As usual he played almost everything but the drums himself, but this is the first album he’s cut in a proper studio rather than his bedroom. It’s got bits of the Who, the Kinks, Syd Barrett, and the 13th Floor Elevators all over it, but its casual sprawl, unassuming soul, and melodic generosity make those borrowings feel more like expressions of brotherhood than acts of theft. ­—Peter Margasak
