San Francisco-based garage-rock whiz kid Ty Segall has released a handful of exceptional solo records over the past few years, and he's already got one album – Hair, a collaborative effort with White Fence – out this year. On June 26th, Segall will release his second 2012 effort, Slaughterhouse (In the Red Records), which finds him recording for the first time with his touring band of fellow thrashers, Mikal Cronin, Charlie Moothart and Emily Rose Epstein. The record will be released under the moniker the Ty Segall Band, and you can download the album cut "I Bought My Eyes," a tasty scorcher with guitar riffs firing on all cylinders, now.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
