Ty Segall – New Album, New Look, New Tour Dates

Ty Segall is a new man, and there’s no turning back. He’s evolving and so is his music..and style. I got a  glimpse of that earlier this year when he kicked off his tour with White Fence looking sharp in a vintage white suit. Gone are his “knuckle dragging” days of youth, said the press release today that announced his impending new album called Twins due out October 9 on Drag City. “It’s like the 2001: A Space Odyssey-monolith came to visit him (on the set) one bright morning. And now he’s jetting toward Jupiter, brooding, looking at man with x-ray eyes…” Whoa. I’m not sure what to make of that preview but by all means, Ty, wear whatever you want. Just keep melting my face of with your awesome music. You make the sun fry.

White Fence – Family Perfume Vol. 2

Artist: White Fence
Album: Family Perfume Vol 1 & 2
Hails From: Los Angeles (via Bay Area)
Release Date: April 3 (vol. 1); May 15 (vol. 2)
Featured Track: “It Will Never Be”

Tim Presley is a genius. Let’s just state the facts and get that out of the way. The member of Darker My Love and The Strange Boys has put out quite a catalogue of solo work under the moniker White Fence since 2010.  This week he’s out with Volume 2 of his double album, Family Perfume. It’s a magical mystery tour of a musical journey. With a little Kinks in there too. But don’t let the 60s homage fool you. Live, he’s touring with a full band that will, quite simply, melt your mind. The tour’s kick off set in San Fran with Ty Segall was one I won’t soon forget. Oh, did I mention his recent collaboration with Ty? Dream team. And one of the best live shows I’ve seen this year.

King Tuff – “Bad Thing”

Artist: King Tuff
Album: King Tuff
Hails From: Vermont
Release Date: May 29, 2012
Featured Track: “Bad Thing”

All hail the King! The mysterious and elusive man has left us hanging since his brilliant 2008 debut, Was Dead, leaving many to think that maybe he was! Well he’s not. I just saw him live and in the flesh at the Burger Boogaloo at Thee Parkside a couple weeks ago. And how he’s set to release his eponymous sophomore effort on May 29 through Sub Pop. Straight up garage rock goodness. So listen up because he might just “save your life and your ears.” All hail the King.

Artist: Ty Segall
Album: Goodbye Bread
Hails From: SF
Featured Track: “You Make the Sun Fry”

The one and only Ty Segall is setting out on a few West Coast dates with Mikal Cronin next month. It’s a show not to be missed, for sure. Having recently seen the pair at El Rio, I can honestly say they will melt your mind. After all these years of shouting my love from the rooftop for this artist, I’ll spare you the hyperbole and cut to the chase. Just do it.

  • Fri. March 2 — San Francisco, CA @ Great American Music Hall w/ White Fence, Mikal Cronin, Feeling of Love
  • Sat. March 3 — Los Angeles, CA @ Troubadour w/ White Fence, Mikal Cronin, Feeling of Love

Oregon Bike Trails – High School Lover 7″

Artist: Oregon Bike Trails
Album: High School Lover 7″
Homeland: Los Angeles, CA
Label: Father/Daughter Records
Release Date: September 13, 2011
Featured Track: “High School Lover”

Man, I’m stuck on this new tune sent my way from the good folks at Father/Daughter records. It’s from the LA-based group Oregon Bike Trails (no typo) who are set to release this tasty 7″ next week….on the very auspicious music day of 9/13. The sound is very Beck-esque and the perfect soundtrack to usher in California’s true summer. Get addicted.
