Ty Segall finally bids adieu all the pretenses of garage rock, adds a “band” to his name and throws down this ridiculous psych-rock burnout. It feels like destruction in a song. Burly guitar wail, electrically charged humidity, the nasal holler of Segall lacing it all together in to a screeching bit of burnt rubber.
Ty Segall Band releases Slaughterhouse on In The Red on June 26th.
Ty Segall plays with The Mallard and White Fences tonight at The Independent in San Francisco. Ty Segall plays Seattle on Friday at Chop Suey with White Fence, The Pharmacy and Tea Cozies.
Following the release of their stellar Castle Face debut Yes On Blood, The Mallard’s little star has been rising, well, quickly to say the least. A tour with Thee Oh Sees, a recent show with The Fresh & Onlys, and an upcoming slate of live gigs a mile long – it’s nice to see this fantastic band finally get the credit they deserve. I’ve been waiting for months and months for something they’ve done, anything really, to get the video treatment, and now Grass Widow’s Hannah Lew (director of videos for Hunx and His Punx amongst many) has done the honor. Broken glass everywhere, that’s all I can say.
Check out The Mallard tomorrow night at The Independent with Ty Segall and White Fences.
