Ty Segall and his crew are notoriously prolific. Segall himself is constantly releasing new records and announcing new projects, and over the years, his sidemen have started stepping out into the spotlight themselves, most notably Mikal Cronin with his albums of bubbly, baroque pop. Now it’s Charles Moothart’s turn: the guitarist for the Ty Segall Band and Fuzz is now fronting his own project, CFM, and its first tune has crept out of the shadows. Today’s 12 O’Clock Track is “Lunar Heroine” off CFM’s debut LP, Still Life of Citrus and Slime, which is due in April via In the Red Records. It’s an outer-space punk-rock blast that smashes together the sounds Moothart and Segall have perfected together in the past: fuzzed-out garage-rock fury, creepy vibes, and stoner sludge. And like everything else these guys whip up, it’s great. Check it out below.
