Ty Segall Announces Follow up to Goodbye Bread with Twins!
Ty Segall is looking awfully Todd Rundgren-like in his new press photo. I wonder if he’s going the 70′s AM Gold route on his new album. It would be tremendous if he did a cover of “Hello, It’s Me” if that is the case. What the heck, I’d settle for Michael Martin Murphey’s “Wildfire” too.
How does time work anyway? Did you know that 2008 is as much yesterday as yesterday is? 2008, that was when it began – a sweat young thing boiling up out of the mythical swamps of ooze and grooves. Ty Segall was just getting started, his need to rock was ordering itself into existence. Now it’s just four years later, a mereness in terms of evolution, and already, there are singles everywhere, plus a couple comps, a live album and mostly, five swinging, smashing studio albums paving the way for this modern superhighway you’re gonna call Twins!
Ty’s a dog, he can’t walk backwards and go back and be the manimal who made those old records. That’s why we thank the gods of pressings plants and sleeve fabricating facilities for preserving those revolutions. Now today, today is where the energy is. The monster energies of Twins do not recall Melted anymore than they take the trips of Goodbye Bread all over again. The Lemons-ade is all drunk down. Ty Segall is a new man, a different kind of man from his knuck-draggin’ earlier incarnations. 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, yearning with a superhuman heart for a love to come and stay.
Ty Segall’s Twins is out October 9th on Drag City!
Catch him live all over Europe and North America in the months to come.
