Manipulator cover

It’s not quite a Bob Pollard situation, but Cali garage rock baron Ty Segall is one of those guys who releases so many records it’s hard to keep track of them all. He’s about to add another LP to the pile in the form of Manipulator. This one is credited to Segall solo, not Ty Segall Band, but from the sounds of the video teaser that accompanied the announcement, it hits as hard as you could possibly hope for while still veering into low-key psych balladry at times. Preview some of the music in director Matt Yoka’s video below.

Manipulator is out 8/26 on Drag City. Pre-order it here. Tracklist:

01 “Manipulator”
02 “Tall Man, Skinny Lady”
03 “The Singer”
04 “It’s Over”
05 “Feel”
06 “The Faker”
07 “The Clock”
08 “Green Belly”

  1. Ty and Tim Presley from White Fence just churn out consistent material like its nothing. I’m super excited after hearing this because it sounds just as amazing as his other material, perhaps even progressively better. No doubt in my head this will be one of my favorites this year seeing as I’ve become a loyal pawn to Ty Segall. Since he’s playing four nights at the Echo its going to be very tempting not to call into work those nights just so I can say I saw him four nights in a row

  2. The best dude in rock these days.
