Ty Segall announces covers album Fudge Sandwich, sadly does not reveal his award-winning fudge sandwich recipe

This post was originally published on this site

If there’s two things in life that Ty Segall loves, it’s writing albums and making songs. How else do you explain his one billion songs spread out across 583 albums? The man is as prolific as they come. What happens however, when the time comes for Ty Segall to release his third album of the year, but he’s totally blanking on song ideas!? The answer…is Fudge Sandwich.

A slab of chocolate nestled between two slices of bread, Fudge Sandwich is a Ty Segall covers album. No no — not a collection of others interpreting Ty Segall songs, nor Ty covering himself by performing all of Emotional Mugger on flugelhorn. This is Ty MF-ing Segall having some fun in between the times he takes his dog out for a walk, performing covers of some of his favorite artists: John Lennon, Funkadelic, Sparks, Grateful Dead, and more! (Because what would a covers album be without the inclusion of the immortal “and more!”?)

Get a taste of this sweet sammie by listening to Segall’s cover of the Spencer Davis Group’s “I’m A Man” down below. Fudge Sandwich is being served up on October 26 via In The Red and can be pre-ordered “for here” and “to go” right over here. Yum.

Fudge Sandwich w/ all the fixings:

01. Lowrider
02. I’m A Man
03. Isolation
04. Hit it And Quit it
05. Class War
06. The Loner
07. Pretty Miss Titty
08. Archangel Thunderbird
09. Rotten To The Core
10. St. Stephen
11. Slowboat

Ty Segall & White Fence – “Body Behavior”

Ty Segall & White Fence - JoyA few months back, Ty Segall and White Fence announced a new album together, Joy. It’s the two Californians first team-up in six years, since they put out their first collaborative record, Hair, and we’ve already heard “Good Boy” from it.

Ty Segall announces break from releasing new albums to release new album with White Fence

This post was originally published on this site

How well do you remember 2012?

Well enough to recall that was the year that Ty Segall and White Fence (a.k.a. Tim Presley) first joined forces for to create a two-headed psych-folk masterbeast called Hair? Or is that just some distant yet fond memory now nestled among the countless Ty Segall releases (the dude appears to have no off-switch) and the White Fence/Presley killers like his recent DRINKS record with Cate Le Bon?

Okay, now stop scratching into your pot-holed memories, because all that is in the past and you have a very bright and expansive future ahead of you in which Segall and White Fence have re-united for another record. This time it’s called Joy, and it’ll be released via Drag City on July 20.

You needn’t worry whether Joy will be some wild departure towards conga-infused, spoken word pieces, either; because the lead single “Good Boy” — conveniently embedded below — suggests that it contains another solid 15 tracks’ worth of burning-garage-flecked psychedelia.

Pre-order the album here and catch the lads live this fall when they hit the road to prove they aren’t holograms (because let’s face it: the wildest of rumors are always the hardest to shake).

Ty Segall announces break from touring to go on tour

This post was originally published on this site

Ty Segall, town troubadour of the world-at-large, loves to keep busy. Every year, he’s releasing a new album; and every year, he’s constantly touring. 2018 has been no exception, as Ty Segall both released a new album, and has been constantly touring. Now that’s an artistic output you can set your watch to!

But seriously folks, things never stop for Ty Segall, who has now announced that he will be taking a break from touring to go on tour. Yes, following the conclusion of his upcoming slate of dates with The Freedom Band, along with a pit stop to get his oil changed and tires rotated, Segall will be heading out in the fall for a run of solo acoustic dates. Support will come from William Tyler and Emmett Kelly.

If that’s not enough to get you excited, a press release promises that Segall will be “…doing all sorts of songs he doesn’t usually play.” Still not convinced? What if I told you the release adds “it’s gonna be great”!? Whoa, sounds like it’s gonna be great!

If you’ve ever watched a Nadwuar interview, you know that his version of hard-hitting journalism involves digging into the interviewee’s weirdest, and best, anecdotes. His most recent video with Steve Albini at SXSW is no different. Apparently Albini didn’t want to attend the festival, but agreed to come as Kim Deal’s interview wingman. “I’m putty … More »
