THE SEGALL HAS LANDED. And it’s fully loaded with everything that Ty
Segall (and you and me) are gonna need in the world to come. Sticking
his hand deeper into the machines all around him, Ty is reaching ever
further to the outer limits of inner space orbited throughout Twins
and Sleeper. And now more than ever, the chunks of the world that came
before are like asteroids formed in his image, picking up speed. Still
fighting the power with all the energy that a determined mind-patriot
can conjure, Ty’s a fighter who loves, a surfer, a spaceman, and yeah,
a casualty – like you, he’ll never be free. But unlike you, he knows
it – and when he goes down and his head cracks in two, out pour the
multi-colored manias that make up Manipulator. Sour-sweet declarations
featuring freaks and creeps alike: “The Singer,” “The Faker,” “Mister
Main,” “Susie Thumb,” the “Connection Man,” and “The Crawler,” to name
but a mutant fistful.

To see these peeps, to realize their dreams and visions, Ty kept
working, kept writing, laying down more tracks than ever. New musical
expressions pop and surprise relentlessly throughout all the knockout
tunes of Manipulator which feature Ty’s helium-cooled vocals, sounding
more powerful and dynamic than ever, and many sounds in the mix, but
most of all, SO many guitars! Strangled-neck solos recalling the good
old days down by the river with Neil, numbed-and-unplugged
discursions, three-quarter quartets raising their din in a few key
places, waves of sparkling acoustics with ominous, Love-ly undertones
– and then, torrents of filthy git-grunge, exploding into the chorus,
washing everything away, fusing the blackness of Sabbath with the
grime and grab-ass of the Stooges and the sweet swinging tones of the
Stones. All in the name of getting higher on the music. Why have one
guitar solo when you can have a few in the same space? There’s so
little time, and a LOT to say.

Ty Segall’s Manipulator is out August 26th on Drag City. Catch Ty and
band — Mikal Cronin (bass), Charlie Moothart (guitar), Emily Rose
Epstein (drums) — all over the country beginning the week of
Manipulator’s release!
