Hear Two Songs From Ty Segall’s New Band Fuzz

The outrageously productive San Francisco fuzz rocker Ty Segall released three albums last year, but that’s apparently not enough. Segall has lately teamed up with his touring guitarist Charlie Mootheart to form a semi-mysterious new duo called Fuzz, and the new band just quietly released a couple of loud songs on a new 7″. “Thi… More »

Watch Ty Segall On Letterman

Messy San Franciscan garage punk Ty Segall is an unlikely recent entrant into the late-night musical-guest roundtable, and his thrashed-out tantrums will always look pretty incongruous on soundstages. Last night, he had David Letterman grinning with amusement when he and his band bashed out a raucous version of his Twins song “You’re The Doctor,” which… More »

Watch Ty Segall Play Chicago Morning News Show

Yesterday, Ty Segall went on Chicago’s WGN Morning News program to perform Twins track “You’re The Doctor,” a frenzied performance that provoked the anchors into throwing their scripts, doing rock fists, the whole nine yards. Ty also screams “CHICAGO! CHICAGO!” over and over toward the end. It all adds up to one of the most… More »

Ty Segall – “The Hill” Video

Here’s Ty Segall’s video for his new one “The Hill,” a druggy VHS-style mishmash that features the band ripping it up in animal costumes (an eagle, a bear, and a dog, respectively). Let’s just say it does not betray Segall’s aesthetic (the dog guy takes a huge bong rip at the end). Segall and Peter… More »

Ty Segall – “The Hill”

Something you probably already know about Ty Segall — he’s prolific. So, the fact that the precocious SF garage rock maven will put out another record, called Twins, a little later this year (which follows up the excellent Album Of The Week alum Slaughterhouse) is not really, with all due respect, newsworthy. What is news,… More »

Album Of The Week: Ty Segall Band Slaughterhouse

Though he’s got quite the sample size for someone his age -– today’s release of Slaughterhouse is either his sixth or seventh solo release in four years, depending on how you count them -– Ty Segall is a little hard to predict. Take, for instance, something like 2011’s Goodbye Bread, a record that exhibited a… More »

Ty Segall Band – “Swag”

You’d figure someone like Ty Segall would be the last to unironically co-opt “Swag,” but, here we are. The hard-charging ripper is for a compilation called In A Cloud II: New Sounds From San Francisco, a collection of new music from bands out of San Francisco, and you can hear it below. More »

Ty Segall Band – “I Bought My Eyes”

Ty Segall will put out a new record the summer with his longtime touring band of Mikal Cronin, Charlie Moothart, and Emily Rose Epstein, and from that we’ve already heard the fuzzy, psych-leaning jam “Wave Goodbye.” Now, here’s another album cut called “I Bought My Eyes,” a riffy, tube-amp-blowing storm of a rock song that… More »

Ty Segall Band – “Wave Goodbye”

Ty Segall will put out a new record this summer under the Ty Segall Band banner, a group which includes longtime partners-in-crime Mikal Cronin, Charlie Moothart, and Emily Rose Epstein. The first single, “Wave Goodbye,” is a fuzzy ripper like you might expect, channeling the darker Beatles stuff, albeit with more blown-out guitars. Download it… More »

Ty Segall & White Fence – “I Am Not A Game”

Last year, the San Francisco fuzz-punk Ty Segall scored big by turning (relatively) introspective on Goodbye Bread. For his follow-up, though, Segall seems to be turning back to his roots. He’s teamed up with fellow Bay Area lo-fi brat White Fence to record the collaborative album Hair. And the first track we’ve heard, “I Am… More »

Ty Segall – “Where Your Head Goes” Video

Earlier today, Ty Segall put out the tie-dye t-shirt of a video for Goodbye Bread cut “Where Your Head Goes,” one of the record’s more striking fuzzed-out rippers. Brian Lee Hughes directs; check it out after the jump. More »

Ty Segall – “Spiders”

Ty Segall’s new single, “Spiders,” is a dark thrash set deep in the garage, a stomping tirade that grinds into a squealing solo. Head to Consequence Of Sound to hear the track. Release-wise, the “Spiders” 7” is out 11/8 on Drag City. Later this month, a Segall rarities collection, Singles: 2007-2010, is out 11/22 o… More »

Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks, Ty Segall @ Music Box, Hollywood 10/19/11

Armed with some witty stage banter and clever lyrics, Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks stopped by the Music Box in support of their latest album Mirror Traffic. Malkmus and the Jicks also delved into their back catalog by dusting off “Discretion Grove”, a super jammy “1% of One”, a synthesizer fueled rendition of “Pencil Rot” and… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Well, this turned out to be pretty easy. The single best video of the year dropped into our collective lap last night, and we’re still reeling from it. There are four other music videos in this post, but nobody will blame you if you just opt to watch “Countdown” a bunch of times in a… More »

Ty Segall – “Goodbye Bread” Video (NSFW-ish)

Your Halloween party will almost certainly not turn out as well as the one in this video. In the “Goodbye Bread” clip, the young Bay Area human garage-rock factory Segall sits, looking sleepy and vaguely bored, while a monster of a costume party rages around him. A topless chick in leopard-print body-paint stands behind him,… More »

FYF Fest 2011 In Photos

FYF Fest, which has had issues with security and crowds in previous years, seems to have moved past those problems and evolved into a healthier, happier festival. Standout sets included Girls, who played heavily from their upcoming Father, Son, Holy Ghost, buzzbuilders Purity Ring and steady, show-those-tikes-how-it’s-done vets like Guided By Voices and the Descendents.

Ty Segall – “You Make the Sun Fry”

Ty Segall is prepping his first LP for Drag City (he released the 7″ single “I Can’t Feel It” on Drag City earlier this year). In an interview with Pitchfork, Segall explained that this album would be mellow, poppy, and more thoughtful; he recorded it relatively slowly (over six months) and spent a lot of… More »
