Ty Segall

We seem about due for a timely “What’s Ty Segall and his 14 different project up to lately?” kind of post. That wonderful T Rex cover above is off the upcoming Goner reissue of his multiple Ty Rex releases, all packaged together and accompanied by a few previously unreleased bonus tracks, including “20th Century Boy”.

T Rex not rockin’ enough for you? First, you can fuck right off with that business. Second, you may be more interested in the newly announced and appropriately titled II from Fuzz, which features Segall on drums and frequent Ty collaborators Charlie Moothart and Chad Ubovich riffing right alongside. This stuff falls far closer to the Blue Cheer side of the rock spectrum. Have at it, below.

Jim already posted “You Disappear”, the first single from La Luz’s upcoming Ty Segall produced album, and the band just let another song leak from Weirdo Shrine. I’ll let frontwoman Shana Cleveland get real with you for a moment:

That song is about when you lose somebody. A friend of mine died in Michigan, that I was close to when I was in high school. I was thinking about how when someone dies the world is almost physically changed because they’re not giving back to it and their breath isn’t in the atmosphere. That’s the lyrical meaning of the song, for me. But there’s also a lot of breath in the song. The first line is, “I don’t wanna be anywhere, you have not breathed the air.” A lot of that song is also just like breathing, all four of us breathing, all the aaahs and ooohs and stuff.

La Luz has a new album coming out in August. It’s produced by Ty Segall which seems like a great match. Based on this single, I’d say so indeed. They are touring too. But alas, it appears Pittsburgh is not making the cut. I hate that.

It’s been dangerously close to a few months since Ty’s put something out. Not for long, though. Mr. Face arrives on 1/13.
As sure as the sun comes up every morning, Tim Presley has released another album full of 60’s-influenced psych music. For the Recently Found Innocent was produced by Ty Segall, but any worries that Presley would abandon some of his jangle in favor of his frequent collaborator’s snarl seem to have been unfounded.
