Ty Segall Forms New Band Broken Bat With Members Of Melvins, Redd Kross

Ty Segall, Steven McDonald (of Redd Kross and OFF!), and Dale Crover (of Melvins) have banded together to form a scuzz-supergroup under the name Broken Bat. They’ve uploaded a single track to their Bandcamp page titled “Take My Medicine,” with a parenthetical note that this particular recording is “just a taste edit.” It’s 53 second… More »

Watch Ty Segall Play A New Song, Cover Neil Young & The Cars Acoustic In NYC

Ty Segall can seemingly transform himself into a righteous glam-rock god at will, but the prolific rocker can do just about anything well, and that includes intimate, stripped-down acoustic psychedelia. This past week, Segall went on a short run of solo acoustic shows at various NYC venues accompanied by Wand’s Cory Hanson, and it wa… More »

La Luz – “You Disappear” (Prod. Ty Segall) (Stereogum Premiere)

Shana Cleveland’s excellent solo album Oh Man, Cover The Ground is out later this month, but that hasn’t distracted her from making new music with La Luz. Cleveland fronts the Seattle surf-rock quartet, and they’ve just announced that their new album Weirdo Shrine will be out in August. This is the group’s second album, and… More »

Watch Kristen Schaal Remake Natalie Imbruglia’s “Torn” Video For Mikal Cronin’s “Turn Around”

Apparently, this is the day we’re all remaking beloved ’90s soft-rock videos. After Jimmy Fallon and Jack Black’s shot-for-shot remake of Extreme’s “More Than Words,” now we get the great Kristen Schaal remaking Natalie Imbruglia’s iconic set-collapsing “Torn” video. This time around, the video serves as Mikal Cronin’s clip for his orchestral psych-pop number “Tur… More »

Ty Segall Announces Short Solo Acoustic Tour

Ty Segall made one of last year’s greatest rock albums with Manipulator, a stomping, snorting, throat-ripping testament to the things that loud guitars can do. But Segall never sits in one aesthetic place for long, and he’s about to take a quick left turn in the opposite direction. Later this year, he’ll play a few… More »

Castle Face, the label run by Thee Oh Sees frontman Jon Dwyer, has long been one of the world’s greatest curators of modern garage rock, in particular the San Francisco scene that exploded into the national consciousness in recent years.

Ty Segall – “Mr. Face”

Ty Segall’s Mr. Face EP may be the world’s first playable pair of 3D glasses, but they also have, like, music on them. Imagine that! The prolific California rocker has just shared the title track from the EP and, as always, it’s shocking how many great songs he can put out in quick succession with… More »

Ty Segall’s Mr. Face EP Is The World’s First Playable Pair Of 3D Glasses

Ty Segall released one of 2014’s great albums in the form of the sludgy glam-rock opus Manipulator, but that doesn’t mean he’s above goofy vinyl-nerd gimmickry. Next month, Segall will release a new four-song EP called Mr. Face. It’s a gatefold double 7″ single, with 3D art. And the two records are on, respectively, blue… More »

The 50 Best Albums Of 2014

Music is a messy thing. There’s too much of it, too many genres, too many ideas, for anyone to make sense out of all of it — or even to hear all of it. The idea of imposing a narrative on 365 days of music, of making sense of a whole year, is a fool’… More »

Photos: 38 Bands Say Goodbye To Death By Audio

Williamsburg DIY venue Death By Audio, which became a staple in the Brooklyn scene after opening in 2007, has now closed its doors for the last time. On Saturday night, Lightning Bolt, JEFF The Brotherhood, A Place To Bury Strangers, and Grooms played the space out for good, but bands have been stopping by to… More »

Ty Segall Announces Singles Collection $INGLE$ 2

A couple of months ago, Ty Segall released Manipulator, the fuzzed-out glam-rock monster-jam album that might be the best thing he’s ever done. But he’s not finished for the year. Segall records music at a frightening pace, and not all of his songs end up on albums. His new compilation $INGLE$ 2, the sequel to… More »

Ty Segall – “The Singer” Video

Not long ago, Ty Segall released a truly great album, a dizzily fuzzed-up glam-slam called Manipulator. The fluttering, crashing “The Singer” is one of the closest things to a ballad on the album, and Segall just made a video for the song with director Matt Yoka. The clip starts out as a static camera shot… More »

Watch Ty Segall Cover Some David Bowie Songs Around Chicago’s “David Bowie Day”

Tuesday was the day that the David Bowie Is exhibit opened at the Museum Of Contemporary Art Chicago, and mayor Rahm Emmanuel named it “David Bowie Day.” The next night, coincidentally enough, Ty Segall played a show in Chicago. Segall’s great, great new album Manipulator takes plenty of cues from Bowie’s glam era, and whe… More »

Fear Of Men – “Sleeper” (Ty Segall Cover)

Fear Of Men, who released their debut album Loom earlier this year, have put out a cover of Ty Segall’s “Sleeper,” from his 2013 album of the same name. The Brighton-based four-piece turns the hushed strumming of the original into a layered, sparkling dreamscape, with frontwoman Jess Weiss’ feathery vocals giving the song a softer… More »

Ty Segall – “Manipulator” Interactive Video

A couple of weeks ago, Ty Segall released Manipulator, a ridiculously enjoyable glam-garage double album and probably the best of the many, many LPs he’s cranked out. The new video for the album’s falsetto-wailing title track throws Segall into a series of cut-and-paste landscapes, full of images of cultural ephemera. (The aliens from Invasion OfMore »

Album Of The Week: Ty Segall Manipulator

This Album Of The Week column has been running for nearly three years now, so it’s something of a surprise that Ty Segall has only appeared in this space once before. (He won Album Of The Week honors for the Stoogesian slobberknocker Slaughterhouse, and I was on paternity leave that week, so I didn’t eve… More »

Q&A: Ty Segall On His Focused, Glammed Up Manipulator And What He Wants To Do Next

One of the most pleasant aspects of attending the Ceremonia festival last weekend was getting the chance to see Ty Segall totally rip through his set while a few thousand Mexican teenagers went totally apeshit. The gig was a warmup of sorts for Segall, whose fantastic new record, Manipulator, will see release next week. The… More »

On Conan last week, the Californian garage rocker Ty Segall ripped the world open, playing his new song “Feel” and letting all of us know exactly what sort of thing he can accomplish whenever he wants.
