Ty Segall Singles 2 A great collection of Ty Segall rarities. ‘Singles 2’ sweeps out the ashes of the breakneck days (and nights) of 2011 - 2013 and burns down the house all over again in the process - but not by accident. ‘Singles 2’ slinks low and flat-out sprints behind the scenes of the ‘Goodbye Bread’ / ‘Twins’ / ‘Sleeper’ trilogy, collecting all the now-out-of print sides that totally work amazingly well together when placed back-to-back-to-back as an album. Singles 2’ is really about the rush of getting a single for the A side and then finding a total sunshine jewel like ‘Children Of Paul’ or ‘Mother Lemonade’ on the flip. Or a stone-solid jam on a classic like the complete retooling of ‘Femme Fatale’ or the Mackay-style sax bleatings of ‘Fucked Up Motherfucker’. Drag City CD | LP
Ty Segall First Taste The new full length album from Ty Segall, following on from Freedom's Goblin. “Our salivating makes it all taste worse,” croons Ty Segall in the first salvo of First Taste. He’s talking about us: how we’re the masters of our own destiny, tellers of our own prophecy, makers of our own sickened choices. It’s a warning, but this time, the finger is pointing back at him too. He’s one with us. Contradictions are rife. First Taste is an introspective set after the extroversions of Freedom’s Goblin - yet just as steeped in party beats somehow, even as Ty trails through his back pages, reflecting on family, re-encountering pasts, anticipating futures. Feeling, like it was the first time, the duplexity of core truths. Lines of struggle wind through the songs. “My life is a mystery / I’d look inside but I can’t see,” as one goes - and yet, such promisingly oblique reflections act to unravel the onion, lifting the veil. Ty skates through oneness, self-esteem, the parents - all the joys of a rain-filled childhood - while reaching outward in the here and now, feeling for a shared pulse. To go on, we need to feel it.

Ty Segall / Black Time Split 180gram repress of a Ty Segall classic! Constantly referred to as his best early work. Originally released in 2009, the Ty Segall / Black Time split LP highlights a dichotomy between two vastly different musical climates. Ty Segall plants himself firmly in the California sun with seven unreleased (and reverb-drenched) tracks. Black Time infiltrate their side like a disorienting British fog, stumbling through six songs in a most cacophonous way. This repress offers fans a chance to lay their hands on a highly desirable record, priced much lower than the original, which sells for around 50 USD. Telephone Explosion LP
Ty Segall Fanny Aagoo Records, an independent record label in New Jersey, is proud to announce the release of Ty Segall’s "Fanny" — a psychedelic ode to his dog — on standard 7" and limited- edition picture disc editions. Not only does Segall’s single feature various cover and insert art painted by Segall himself, but the track in three different forms: the demo, a revved-up “sketch” and a live recording from San Diego, California. Each side of the picture disc features a yellow dog face painted by Segall, from his acrylic painting "Goopy Poodle". Stare at it long enough: it’s oddly comforting! And the "Fanny" 7" is for a canine cause: all proceeds will go to animal rescue organizations NKLA and Mighty Mutts, which are dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating the strays of Los Angeles and New York. It’s a tribute to our canine friends only Segall could make. Aagoo Records / Computer Students 7"
Ty Segall Fudge Sandwich Take a tour through Ty Segall’s musical psyche with his new solo album, Fudge Sandwich, a collection of Segall’s take on eleven songs that were originally done by other people. These aren’t just cover versions. Cover versions happen at weddings and high school band battles. The songs here are what happens when someone loves a song so much, they need to get inside it and let it propagate and transform into what it would have been if they had actually written it. Equal parts reverence and reimagination, this album shows Segall inhabiting the world of a song’s intent, filtering it through the muse that drove this year’s exceptional Freedom’s Goblin. Cluttered, passionate and inspired, the songs are barely recognizable, irresistible and by album’s end, present a cohesive collection that stands proudly alongside the best of Segall’s considerable output.

Ty Segall Freedom's Goblin The new full length album from Ty Segall, boasting 19 songs of pure fuzzy rock. The goal was getting free: embracing any approach necessary to communicate new heights and depths, seeking new places for the fuzz to land among octaving harmonies, dancefloor grooves, synths, saxes and horns, jams, post-Nicky-Hopkins r’n’b electric piano vibes, children-of-the-corn psycho-rebellions, old country waltzes and down-by-the-river shuffles. Basically, the free-est bunch of pop songs Ty’s ever put on tape—free to love or to be alone; to be pretty or pretty ugly; free to turn the other cheek or to turn up the volume. And of course, free to make just about any kind of song that’ll free people when they hear it—because we’re ALL Goblins and we ALL want our Freedom! Drag City CD | LP
Ty Segall Slaughterhouse Limited to 400 copies on clear coloured vinyl. Reissue of the 2012 debut album from the Ty Segall Band, including a bonus song that wasn't included on the original release. Slaughterhouse marks the first album that Ty Segall recorded with his touring band. For this album the band recorded with Chris Woodhouse at the Hangar, turned their amps all the way up, set their fuzz pedals on obliterate and commenced to kick ass and take names. Seriously, this record will melt your face. All of Segall's usual psych-pop sensibilities are present but Slaughterhouse adds the full-throttle, go-for-the-throat bombast that the band delivers in the live setting. The fuzz riffs, bratty howl and Cro-Magnon bashing culminate with a feedback freakout that's clearly the only sensible way to end a workout of this magnitude. In The Red CD | LP
Ty Segall Fried Shallots 12" charity EP from the unique and wonderful Ty Segall, all the proceeds from the label will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union. “Fried Shallots” is a handful of numbers from different times and places over the past few years that all work together in a weird way. That’s something that we should all be striving for: all working to- gether in a weird way. For Ty, that requires rock with the gears shift- ing and stripping, tempos and tropes mashing up; a primal outburst, a quick-and-fuzzy soundtrack of rock, folk, r’n’b and pure power pop, to give us a chance to chill and do the new century twist for just a minute. That’s good, for in twist we trust! Drag City 12"
